eBay told eBay Stores sellers on Thursday that they now have access to new subscriber-exclusive selling tools and discounts on items and services. Sellers can now create and manage promotions like order size offers, free shipping offers, related items offers, targeted coupons, and sale events.

With order size offers, sellers will be able to promote the purchase of more than on item or spending over a certain amount per transaction by offering a specific dollar amount off or percentage off, or a free item per multiple item purchase.

Sellers will be able to promote free shipping offers by automatically merchandising all qualifying items (like free shipping on orders over $100), and encourage buyers to purchase multiple items by bundling related items and offering a percentage discount.

Sellers will also be able to offer digital coupons to select buyers only and merchandise items together for "easier buyer access". For example, you can promote a sale for customers to "Save up to 30% on all women's shoes."

eBay is also giving sellers their own discounts, including 25% off of packing and shipping supplies, 15% off design services, special offers from PayPal, etc. The company says it will offer more exclusive discounts as the months go on.

More on all of this here.
