What is eBay's Next promo?

The free gallery promo ends on Weds Dec. 12th so I'm wondering what will be next. Of course sellers will load up their listings on Weds to take advantage of the sale but what is eBay's next move? 7 day listings posted on Weds will keep gallery on most items through the 19th but all new items listed from the 13th on will be charged the extra Gallery fee of 35 cents.

Of course, this does take sellers up to the 19th perhaps that last day they can feasibly still ship items for Christmas so maybe eBay won't do anything new. My feeling is that they will not do anything promo wise until the first of the year, though I believe they should make gallery free on all listings going forward.

Sellers, be aware that this sale ends on Weds, so make sure if you only use gallery because its free, to remove it from your listings starting Thursday or you in for a surprise on your eBay bill.

I'm confused - if I upload a Free Gallery photo on Wednesday under the promo - does that mean since the listing will be live on Thursday, I'm charged starting on Thursday for the use of the Gallery Photo? Thanks.

Hi Pippi,

No, if you list with free gallery on Weds the gallery will be free for the length of your listing (3, 5, 7 or 10 days)

Hope that helps.

Hi, Randy. I have to admit, the recent promos have encouraged me to list more items than normal, and my ASP on items are acutally higher! Maybe it is because we are in the midst of the "holiday crunch." I agree that we probably won't see any more promos until the first of the year - but maybe something bigger and better is on the horizon.

And yes, I will be listing until my hands fall off toinght!
