Pottery & Glass

Collectibles are the master category for our patches, neckerchiefs and other ephemera.

Here is the breakdown of the savings:

Auction-style listings Regular Price Promotional Rate
$0.01 – $0.99 $0.15 $0.08
$1.00 – $9.99 $0.35 $0.18
$10.00 – $24.99 $0.55 $0.28

All other fees (Final Value Fees and all other optional listing upgrade fees*) will still be charged.

Since the promotion is only about 6 hours old right now, I see there are not quite 9300 auctions running now. How high do you think the number will get? Will this make you list a few more items?


You must learn from the mistakes of others. You can’t possibly live long enough to make them all yourself.
