I never would post anything on ebay because of the listing fee. If I list something and it didn't sell, I'd still have to pay "listing" fee. Now that they allow a person to post 50 items for free a month, I've started listing things, and have sold $1,500.00+ in items in last 3 months. If they did not start the free listings, I would have never have listed the items. I am sure I am not the only one.
eBay needs to advertise this, and extend it to 100 free items a month. They will not get the $.30 listing fee, but they will get the commission from the items that sell.
Because I think more people will start to post things, because of the free 50 items a month, I bought into ebay stock, as I think this will start to show in earnings in coming quarter.
