dont think it has anything to do with free listing, as its on week by week just like there other weights and bits and bobs .. at the minute they have 1382 items on ebay .. now on the  pricing to list them even at the lower end of the start price lets just say 4.99 which is 15p to list which turns out to be about 92 to list the lot ... now the sellers adverage start price is around 100 which will cost 1 to list so they spend 1382  on sellers fees  WOW
cheers Ray

Ouch!

Ive just breezed through the seller's last 500 completed listings, and found just two sales.   That wont keep the wolf from the door and pay the ebay fees.   What's the point?

I believe a business seller gets a different preferential rate to the ordinary seller, perhaps only a fraction of whats being calculated???

They have an ebay shop, the listing fees are a lot cheaper, 10p per listing (as they are also a business seller)
