- It would cost the advertiser a few pence if anyone actually buys it
- It may be against ebay's terms
- It will take a few minutes time up of any good natured soul that does it
Doesn't take them long to start cashing in, does it???
sorry I seem to be posting the same thing twice silly me
I successful claimed my Bank Charges back last year after watching Trevor Mc Donald's Tonight programme, with the Lovely Martin Lewis. I joined the site https://www.consumeractiongroup.co.uk & set out to get my charges back long road but got there in the end.
Anyway I have also saw a few eBayer's selling the information, I wrote to eBay about this these sellers selling FREE info on eBay & guess what eBay did? NOTHING, to be honest the reply I got was just the standard automated one.
So what I did was add the link on my about me page, I also added the link to my Thank you letter to my buyers, letting them know that they could claim their Bank charges back. I know that some of them got back to me & thanked me for the link.
So if you are a seller on eBay, do what I did, add the link to your about me page & your thankyou letter.
Good Luck to Everyone who is Claiming Back Their Bank Charges.
Martin and MSE may be able to fight back by - as mentioned above - doing their own eBay listing.
Sell the template letter for as low as possible (I think they still allow penny auctions) and offer say a thousand for sale, so that the listing doesn't disappear.
Unless I'm missing something obvious, your only costs would be one listing fee and the realisation fees - which would be next to nothing on penny auctions.
Looking at the bigger picture, even if someone's buying a free letter for a fiver on ebay, if they can reclaim £1000's in charges it's still a good thing.
