EBay Drops the Price to Free for Up to 50 Auction Listings

EBay said Tuesday that for the first time ever, it is making it free to list up to 50 items a month on its auction site and that it will be free to add the “Buy it Now” option. Prices will be effective starting April 19. The promotions are designed to drive increases in both new listers and listings. Currently the prices for the service vary by the starting price of the item. If someone were listing 50 items a month at the highest price and added Buy It Now to all of them, the current cost would be $112.
