Update: As Ry explains in comments, the promo might be misleading. The $20 fee limit looks to be per item, not for the month. If your item sells for over $200 you will not be charged more than $20 in fees. So might be best to use it for expensive items. Double check yourself if you were targeted.
Ebay has a great targeted offer for sellers. Those who receive the offer, will be limited to just $20 in final selling fees for the month of June, no matter how many items you sell. You will be credited any final value fees exceeding $20 (“Promotion”) for all items sold during the Promotion Period. Ebay generally has higher selling fees than Amazon, but this would make it a better option for the month of June.
Final value fees will still be applied to the total amount of the sale including the cost of the item, shipping, and any other fees a seller may charge—excluding any sales tax. However, the Seller will pay no more than a combined $20 in final value fees for any listings that sell during the Promotion Period, regardless of the listing date. You just need to sell during the promo period.
Total sales must exceed $200 in order for the promotion to apply. For example, if the total value of items sold in June is $620, the seller’s final value fees for the month will be capped at $20 (instead of paying the standard fee total of $62). If the total value of items sold during the Promotion Period is sold for $190, the Promotion will not apply because the standard final value fee would be below $20, as the sum of sales is below $200.
This Promotion will begin on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, at 00:00:01 PT (12:00AM plus one second), and will end on Thursday, June 30, 2016, at 23:59:59 PT.
