eBay Offers “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” Deals

13 Nov 2017 Blog

Black Friday is almost upon us, but this year’s shoppers are eager to skip the lines. A recent eBay study found that 76% of would-be buyers…more than three quarters…would give something up rather than endure the chaos of Black Friday lines, while 26%…that’s one out of every four…would rather have a root canal.

Still, Black Friday shoppers expect deeper discounts, so eBay is giving them early access online with its new campaign, “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” deals. From November 13-17, with many retailers announcing their top Black Friday deals in advance, eBay will match the prices on many of those same top deals. New deals will be offered every day, all with fast and free shipping, on brand-new items from top brands like Ninja, Samsung, and Apple, among others.

The full list of items eligible for “Don’t Wait for Black Friday” deals can be found at

Small Business Saturday: A Big Deal on eBay!

13 Nov 2017 Blog

First observed in the United States on November 27, 2010, Small Business Saturday (SBS for short) is a counterpart to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which feature big box retail and e-commerce stores respectively. SBS encourages holiday shoppers to shop small. That’s a big deal on eBay, which has launched a dedicated landing page for the occasion at

In addition to showcasing super SBS deals, the micro-site tells shoppers, “eBay has helped small businesses thrive for years. Many of our smaller sellers have been eBay members for years and have impressive quantities and selections of merchandise that fits your specific definition of perfect. Plus, you’re helping to keep smaller businesses thriving by helping them achieve their dreams.”

In addition, under the subtitle “Three Good Reasons to Shop on Small Business Saturday…and Every Day”, reason number 1 is “Unique products. Sometimes, big box chains are a blessing. But to find true treasures, one-of-a-kind gift ideas and specialty items, a small business is where it’s at. You’ll be able to find gifts and products that mean something more, and leave you and your recipient with a smile on your face.”

Also featured at eBay’s Small Business Saturday hub are three “ Tips for Finding Reliable Sellers”:

  1. Check their seller ratings and feedback

If your ideal find comes from a small business that’s a Top Rated Seller or consistently has positive ratings and feedback from buyers, you’re on the right track. This way you’ll know the seller is focused on quality and customer satisfaction.

  1. Thorough and complete title and Item Specifics

When a seller provides complete information…plus clear photos…on the items they’re offering, it’s a good sign they’re going the extra distance to ensure your satisfaction and complete a sale. The more specific information, the better…both for you, and for them.

  1. Smart shipping options

A successful…and smart…small business seller on eBay is also more likely to provide convenient and easy shipping options, such as Global Shipping or Fast ‘N’ Free Shipping. When they do, it offers quicker delivery, while you can keep track of your shipment.

Don’t forget to shop small this season, on Small Business Saturday and all year round!

First Minute Deals, Guaranteed Delivery & Price Matching Guarantee

03 Nov 2017 Blog

When it comes to holiday shopping, a new eBay study found that 45% of Americans start their holiday shopping well before Black Friday. They also found that choice and convenience are the biggest reasons shoppers start shopping sooner in the season, so eBay is making “First Minute” shopping easy and rewarding with new early deals, fast delivery and price matching.

Exclusive First Minute deals include some of the hottest holiday gifts, from top brands like Adidas, Dyson, Mattel, KitchenAid and more. The recent launch of eBay’s new Guaranteed Delivery program means that delivery in three days or less will be offered on millions of items.

In addition, Bay’s Price Match Guarantee on more than 50,000 deals will ensure that shoppers get the best value on top gifts across all categories, because all season long, eBay will match the best price from competitors — including Amazon, Walmart, Target, Home Depot, Best Buy and more —even on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, when many other retailers won’t match prices.

Says Suzy Deering, eBay’s Chief Marketing Officer for North America, “There’s simply no reason to wait for Black Friday to find the best prices or top gifts this holiday season when shoppers can start and finish early with eBay!”
