Conventional eBay thinking holds that listing items with cheap opening prices should get you more attention and a better finishing price, so from that point of view eBay’s offer to waive insertion fees for items starting at 99 cents or less between March 2 and 22 sounds pretty good. On the other hand, the normal insertion fee for that price is only 30 cents, and if you’d rather list something with a minimum starter of $10, that’s only going to cost 50 cent. So do the sums and research carefully before diving in.
