eBay announced new pricing today which will be appealing to low-volume sellers. eBay is allowing sellers to list up to 50 items each month in auctions at any start price, and sellers are free to add the "Buy It Now" or BIN option.
“As we look toward the future of commerce, eBay is positioning small sellers and larger merchants alike for growth, and connecting them with shoppers excited about their great deals and terrific service,” said Christopher Payne, senior vice president and head of eBay North America. “We are listening to our customers and continue to tailor pricing to ensure the success of our sellers, and make eBay more convenient, accessible and relevant to their customers.”
If that weren't enough alone, eBay is also reducing Final Value Fee rates for store and fixed price sellers. eBay will apply the final value fee to the total amount of a sale (which includes shipping). The updated Final Value Fee structure takes effect for non-store sellers on April 19, 2011, and for Store and Fixed Price sellers on July 6, 2011.
