One free listing before 31 March

Good promotion for a high value listing (seems to include FVF), but seems to be valid only for the next listing after opting in, and not for all IDs:

Still waiting for a U-turn on FVF on international P&P

Have you ever seen a promo like this before?  Or is it a new idea?

It is no big deal, just for one single listing. It has been offered before.

Hmmm, I didn't receive an invite for this but ... have just clicked the "accept offer" to see whether there was more info and now have the promotional offer in my eBay.

 

I won't use it but not sure what would happen if someone clicks that to accept the offer from the link but hasn't received an email and the RSVP in there.

Headline for the promo is 'First Listing Free'

 

I'd assume it's only open to ids that haven't sold before.

It does rather look that way as it allows for sellers to use auction/BIN or a combo so they can try it out.

 

It also then goes on to use similar terms to the FLW which is misleading - eg Only 1 category is free for each listing

 

But there is only one listing on offer.

 


And if all fees are free, then why not say 'incluing final value fees' instead of vaguely suggesting it might be more than just listing fees?
