Hi there dear eBay members! I am serverbot an eBay guru and I will share to you my tips and tricks on how to put your items for free on eBay!! Yes, that is correct, for FREE!
First, lets check the newest promotion that eBay has, it is the free insertion fee for auction style listings until January 2011!! Any price, just make sure that you have 4.5 on all of your DSRs and you are qualified for the 100 free listings regardless of starting price. But what if you already used 100 of the free 100 listings? You can use it again on the next month, meaning it refresh every month.
If you already used 100 of it and likes to list more, then you will be charged for the next listing. How to avoid getting charge again and again? Use the Free relist policy, list the item once and if it didn't sell, relist it and DON'T relist it the second time since it will no longer be covered by Free relist. It will only works if your item sells the first time you relist it and you will only get the first insertion fee.

But what if you made a mistake in your listing and you can no longer edit it or you like it to be Fixed price but you listed it as Auction? How to get credit for it? You need to end the listing within 12 hours since you listed the item and contact eBay for credit. Yes, you can contact eBay and they will credit it for you as long as it's not yet past 12 hours.

If it's your first time to file a cancel transaction case and the buyer declined it accidentally, you can also ask eBay to credit it for you since you can no longer file another case! It can be a one time courtesy credit or an education credit.
How about Overdraft fees?eBay don't charge it, it's your bank. You need to contact your bank so that they can credit it for you but to avoid it, check your funding source in your PayPal account or check your eBay automatic payment method on file.
Lastly, the most devilish trick to get free credits, you just need to contact eBay and ask for credit. It can be a one time courtesy or education credit if you haven't requested one. Dead serious, you can get free listings for doing this. It's mean but it's a trick.
