Reduced ebay percentage cashback.

Post by redskelf » Thu Mar 05, 2020 7:18 am

I went to use imutual as usual to go to ebay and I noticed the percentage has gone from 10% down to 2.1%.
Anyone able to tell me, please, why this reduction?

And that's 2.1% of the eBay fee which makes it utterly disappointing.

No, it's not. It's now a percentage of the purchase price, and I think you'll find that the average reward has actually increased! It's also better than tcb and quidco

Great news as I use eBay a lot.

Now, if you can do anything about the tracking that would be good. I have so many transactions that don't track (all transacted correctly) but they are only small in some cases and very time consuming to chase and I'm sure you don't want another spreadsheet from me... :wave:

eBay won't investigate claims. However, they've provided a new reporting mechanism so we'll see if it proves more reliable

2.1% is over double what tcb / quiders are offering so good.
