eBay's long-in-development plan to offer free classified listings for items with local pickup finally kicks off today. If you've been thinking of a garage clean-out, now might be the time.
As we've pointed out before, the "free" requirements comes with a major qualification: the final value fee is assessed at 7.9%, not eBay's normal 5.25%. In practice, that means a listing will likely cost you more if you do sell something, but you won't have any up-front risk. If you're just keen to get rid of old stuff and see it reused, Freecycle is another sensible option to consider.
