    1 final vale fee invitation? Is it ok to do this?! 12th Aug 18 at 10:23 AM
    Hi Everyone.
    I have been sent an email from ebay inviting me to pay a maximum 1 final value fee.
    At the moment I have 5 active Buy it Now listings at over 35.

    Am I breaching any ebay rules if I end the listings now and relist to take advantage of the 1 maximum final fee?
    I'm hoping it's ok to do it!

    Thank you

    As with alykatz, I tend to end auctions without bids to relist when ebay send one of their fee offers. I listed something last night then seeing the latest offer this morning, ended that auction & will relist it this evening to take advantage of paying a lower fee.
    The bigger the bargain, the better I feel.

    I should mention that there's only one of me, don't confuse me with others of the same name.

    The only time you need caution is if you have had any questions on the item, or a bid, otherwise you should be fine.
