Who's eligible?
From December 6 through December 8, 2011, sellers will pay no Insertion Fees per item listed ("Promotion") for up to 5,000 listings in the 1, 3, or 5-day Auction-style format. The Buy It Now option may also be added to these listings for free. Only sellers whose accounts meet eBay's minimum seller performance standards are eligible. Please refer to the "What is excluded?" section for more details. Please note that all existing selling limits on your account as well as category and item limits still apply and may exclude you from taking full advantage of this promotion.

This Promotion applies to both eBay Stores subscribers and sellers who do not have an eBay Stores subscription. If you do not have an eBay Stores subscription, your listings, up to 5,000 total during the promotion period, will be in addition to the 50 free Auction-style listings with free Buy It Now that you already get.
How will this apply to me?
Stores subscribers: From December 6 through December 8, you can list up to 5,000 items in 1, 3, or 5-day Auction-style free (no Insertion Fees)—plus add Buy It Now to those listings free.

All other sellers: From December 6 through December 8, you can list up to 5,000 items in 1, 3, or 5-day Auction-style format listings free (no Insertion Fees)—plus add Buy It Now to those listings, free. Free listings during the Promotion are over and above the 50 free Auction-style listings with the free Buy It Now you already get per month. For example, if you've already used 25 of your 50 free listings per month, from December 6 through December 8, you can list up to 5,000 items free with free Buy It Now, and still have the rest of your 25 listings with free Buy It Now to use whenever you want later in the month.
What if I do not have a Store subscription and I list an item during the Promotion with a 7-day duration?
The Promotion only applies to listings with a 1, 3 or 5-day duration. Any items you list during the Promotion with a different duration will count as one of the 50 free you already get.
When is it?
This Promotion starts on Tuesday, December 6, 2011, at 00:00:01 PT (12:00 AM plus one second), and will end on Thursday December 8, at 23:59:59 PT (11:59 PM plus 59 seconds), for listings on www.ebay.com. For listings on www.ebay.ca, the Promotion will begin at 12:00 AM plus one second, ET, on Tuesday, December 6, 2011, and will end on Thursday December 8 at 11:59 PM plus 59 seconds, ET, (the "Promotion Period").

Sellers may also add the Buy It Now option to these listings free.
