Media Pricing Effective February 20, 2008
By now, we hope you've had the chance to watch the Keynote
Q&A webcasts from our annual eCommerce Forum held recently
in Washington D.C. We heard your comments about the need for media
and category-specific pricing and are accelerating our plan to phase
it in. This fee cut will coincide with the site-wide pricing changes
previously announced (see Basic
Fees and Feature
Fees) and will take effect on February 20.
In the Books, Music, Movies and Video Game software
categories, we will be offering even lower insertion fees for
the first three insertion tiers as follows:
0.99 (auction-style only)
9.99 (auction-style & fixed price)
24.99 (auction-style & fixed price)
For more information on these changes, please see the latest announcement
for details. By rewarding and differentiating our best sellers, we
will together deliver more of the great shopping experiences found
nowhere else but on eBay.
