If you sell products on eBay as part of your home-based business, you’ve probably experienced an item or two that didn’t sell the first time. What do you do? Relisting the item on eBay over and over will result in additional listing fees racking up against the item and lowering the profit you can extract from the item.
But you can at least relist the item once. Did you know that eBay lets you relist any unsold item once and get a credit for the Insertion Fee portion of the listing fee? This isn’t a whole lot of money, but those insertion fees can really add up. So it’s worth a second try.
To take advantage of eBay’s Insertion Fee credit, you need to relist using their relist link (either in the seller panel or in your email notice). When you do that, the Insertion Fee credit happens automatically.
Here is eBay’s help page on Insertion Fee Credits. Should you just relist the item as is? Hmm..perhaps not. Tomorrow, we’ll look at some things you might consider changing prior to relisting that unsold eBay item.
