Price testing

From time to time, we test new pricing on fees by raising the price or offering a discount. Price changes may run for a limited time, and be specific to a particular category, promotional extra, listing method, success fee or withdrawal fee.

We sometimes A/B test our pricing, so some members will be offered a different price than others. If you have any questions about this, please contact us below.
