This is awesome news for many eBay sellers including myself!

If you’re not selling on eBay yet, now is the time to take advantage of this change taking place.

With the holidays around the corner, eBay is making this “Bold Move” to continue with keeping eBay as the most competitive marketplace on the net.

Best part, this is NOT a promotion. It is not a temporary thing. eBay is allowing us to list items for the duration of 30 days and pay a listing fee of only 35 cents! WOW!

The price change will go into effect on September 16, 2008. This drastically reduced fee is for buy it now, fixed price listings. eBay motors is excluded from this offer.

35 cent insertion fee for 30 days: Any start price or item quantity. They are also offering reduced final value fees (closing fees) for some of the categories, including:

* Cameras
* Consumer Electronics
* Computers

This will help make our up-front listing costs much lower, which means our profit margins will be much higher. Especially higher for those items listed in the categories with reduced final value fees! We will be gaining more exposure at a lower price!

This is exciting news to me as a long term eBay seller.
