October 30, 2012—eBay.com is getting more and more creative with their promotions as the upcoming presidential election approaches. This week’s promotion titled “Sell and Prosper-Elect to list auction-style free” will run from October 29 through November 4th for eligible sellers. Invited users can list up to 50,000 auction type listings with no fees during the promotion week. Invitations were sent last week notifying eligible sellers of the deal.
Normally eBay targets particular sellers for invited promotions depending on their seller performance or the amount of inventory sold monthly. Whether it be a little or a lot, eBay uses a string of promotions to entice small and large sellers to increase product listings during promotion weeks. Although eBay typically doesn’t advertise current promotions, they did however acknowledge they’re running invitation-only promotions.
“Watch for other by-invite only offers: We’re also now rotating offers among sellers so we can offer even more money-saving opportunities – and offer the promotions that make the most sense for the way you sell. So make sure you are opted in to receive our emails, and keep an eye on your email and Messages in My eBay for your invitation.”
