What is promotions manager?
This quick and easy tool enables you to market your merchandise like a pro! Create special offers that encourage buyers to shop more of your items and spend more on each order. Best of all it's free for Stores subscribers.
Markdown Sale Events
The Markdown Manager you love is now more powerful
Markdown Manager is now combined with Sale Events in Promotions Manager. Select 'sale event + markdown' from the promotion section in Seller Hub to enjoy the enhanced tool.
More ways for buyers to find your items
Markdown sale events create another entry point for buyers to find your listings. When you create a 'sale event + markdown' offer, a dedicated offer page is created that highlights all of your marked down items to buyers.
You can share this page on your marketing channels like email and social media.

**Claims are based on gross merchandise volume (GMV) data generated by a defined set of items on eBay during 2016-07-04 and 2016-12-31 which were promoted in a variety of formats (example order size discounts, free shipping offers, sales events, and related item discounts) by their sellers’ use of the promotions management tool on eBay for the first time. The GMV from the sale of these items was measured before and during these promotions. The increase is the difference between the GMV measured before and after compared to it during the promotions. Your actual results from use of the promotions management tool on eBay may vary and eBay makes no guarantee that you will see similar results.
