eBay Motors sent me an email today….
New pricing for eBay Motors – No Insertion fee for first 4 vehicles!
HooRay, for the small guy, and for at home sellers!
No Insertion Fee on Your First 4 Vehicles…
eBay Motors is eliminating Insertion Fees on the first four vehicles you list in a 12 month period.
Starting with the fifth vehicle, the fee is $20 (50% less than it was under the old plan).
And after 12 months, you go back to “first four” pricing.
Only pay if you are successful…
If you are successful, a $125 Successful Listing Fee is charged.
Auto Dealers, not so much…
Because now instead of only paying $40 to list a car, they will now pay $20 + $125 per car sold. This could be a good deal for dealers who don’t actually sell the cars they list, but for those with the intent to sell cars, the pricing just pretty much doubled.
I am stoked for the residential eBay user who only sells a car a year or at most 4 cars. For them, the final value fee deal is a good trade off. But for small dealers (Not in the GM or Chrysler networks with discounted eBay Motors listing fees from the start) I don’t think this deal is a good thing.
If you are an Auto dealer using eBay motors on a consistent basis, please chime in with a comment to let us know what you think of the new eBay motors fee structure! (Comment form is below the image…)
