Why free postage works

Offering free postage on your items can be an effective way of attracting more buyers and promoting your business.

Use free postage in competitive categories

Free postage can be a useful strategy in particularly competitive categories, such as video games or fashion, where you’re competing against lots of similar items.

But bear in mind that you will still need to pay your postage provider for the service, and make sure you’re not leaving yourself out of pocket by absorbing high postage costs for low value items.

When listing, select Offer free postage to offer free postage. When your listing is live, potential buyers will see that postage is free.
