Ebay has put another nail in the coffin of the “auction listing”. Previously, they offered their regular users 50 free auction listings every month. As of April 16th, users can get 50 free listings in either the auction or fixed price format. Since auction ending prices have sharply decline in the past five years, many users will shift their 50 free listings to the fixed price format over the upcoming months.
