    "Good till cancelled" and FVF promotions?

    "Good till cancelled" and FVF promotions? 17th Oct 16 at 1:24 AM
    I noticed the option "good till cancelled" is now available (to non business sellers/shops holders), I was wondering if I were to list during the FVF promotion period, eg "max £1 FVF" and select "Good till cancelled" option, will the promotional FVF be applicable even if the item takes forever to sell, say months? Seems too good to be true. Hope my question makes sense. Thanks in advance!

    If a product line doesn't sell for 18 months the monthly insertion fee does increase by 10p per month, which is basically a fine for having product lines that fill up the site and don't sell.

    hmmm, not sure about that, my longest running item without a sale hasn't got that far yet.

    Yes sorry I didn't make that clear. They don't physically end because they 'relist themselves' it's a perpetual listing and your fees are the same as if you had listed it yourself once ended.
