FAQs

Why did I get charged to use the promotional extra again on my relist?
Promotional extras are recharged on relist or extension. If you’re not wanting the promo on the relist/extension, just untick it when going through the listing process. If you accidentally add promotional extras, please let us know so we can help.

How does a Super Feature Combo work?
When you add a Super Feature (or Super Feature Combo) it lasts for up to seven days, or for the remaining duration of your listing if it’s less than seven days. After this time, it reverts to the Feature Combo for the duration of your listing.

What if my item doesn’t sell, can you refund the promotional extra?
Listing fees and promotional extras are non-refundable, but they’re a great way to get more exposure for your listing in the category. Check out the fees page for more information.

How much does it cost to add promotional extras to my listing?
The prices vary across categories and we sometimes have discounts on these. Check out the fees page for up-to-date information on pricing.
