Beginning on October 15, eBay sellers will get more zero insertion fee listings. The monthly allotment is going from 20 to 50 for auction-style and fixed price listings in most categories (Motors Vehicles, Real Estate, Classified Ads, Heavy Equipment, Concession Trailers & Carts, Imaging & Aesthetics Equipment, and Commercial Printing Presses are excluded).

"This increased allotment also replaces the 20 zero insertion fee listings dedicated to auction-style listings in Collectibles categories," says eBay's Jordan Sweetnam in an announcement. "And, for those of you ready for the next level, you can try a Basic eBay Stores subscription for one month—FREE. But, space is limited, so you’ll have to activate it by October 31."

More on that here.

eBay is giving basic-level eBay Stores subscribers an increased allotment from 150 to 200 zero insertion fee fixed price listings per month. For all eBay Stores subscribers, the monthly allotment of 100 additional zero insertion fee auction-style listings is being extended to apply to listings in the Collectibles and Fashion categories.

"Once this goes into effect, I hope this encourages you to list more than ever," says Sweetnam. "Because, in a few weeks, we’ll be launching our Holiday 'Wish Bigger' campaign (get a sneak peek here)—and then it’ll be on."

A couple weeks ago, eBay gave sellers new, more flexible return features.
