1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    If your worried about the $0.10 or $0.50 per listing for the insertion fee your doing something wrong IMO. Yea, free is nice but I would never change how I run my auctions based on any fee or promotion, unless I try to list more/faster but never list less.

    I just wasn't aware. It was my first time doing 10 days so I wasn't aware. I was trying something different as I usually did 7 days rather than 10. I don't mind the .40 cent fee.

    Brian, it may be beneficial to take advantage of the offer at times in a unique way. If you run many BIN / OBO listings, you can benefit from a quick realist from them, to help boost your "best match" and "newly listed". Have you ever taken advantage of that?

    I'll try and email you or PM you an article I think @jebarne posted a few weeks back....I ended up printing it out, but I'll digitalize it. Its informative and speaks on eBays internal search optimization, and how sellers are perceiving in taking advantage of the system...


    EDIT: Found it, and PM'd you. its interesting, and probably worth printing out to keep for reference.

    That article sounds like it's worth a read. Could you quote/post the article?

    Restrictions & Exclusions.
    • The Promotion excludes the following: items listed in the fixed price format, 1-day and 3-day listing durations, eBay Motors Passenger Vehicles, Motorcycles, Boats, Power Sports, Other Vehicles, Motors Local Market, Real Estate, and Classified Ad listings. The following business and industrial categories are excluded: Heavy Equipment, Concession Trailers & Carts, Imaging & Aesthetics Equipment, and Commercial Printing Presses.

    I believe if you end and relist they're gonna charge you fees for the upgrade if you list the item as BIN/OBO

    I wasn't specifically speaking to this promotion offered. Rather others that cater to BIN

    nope, has to go live within the timeframe

    Every penny counts, but I agree that I wouldn't dramatically change my listing style to meet a promotion. This particular one gives you free BOLD and subtitle, since it doesn't go until Thursday I just relisted everything that didn't sell tonight on a 7 day auction instead of waiting until Thursday and added in the bold and subtitle. This way I have about 50 free listings with the bold, etc... instead of paying another .75 ea on a 10 day auction Thursday.

    I did end a bunch of aging GTCs and "listed similar", had my best week ever with 100 sold tonight, could be a coincidence, I was headed for a good week before I did that. That article is great, but unverifiable. The person writing it is not selling anything, so no reason to question intentions, but I think some of it is a hunch. Just sent me down the rabbit hole of seller blogs... I'll be up all night.

    Might have sold better in the fall when it's cooler out.
