Bonus Items

If you intend to sell on one or more of eBay's international sites, you will need to accept, and we encourage you to carefully review, the User Agreement, policies, and other requirements of that site. You can continue to reach out to the relevant customer service teams on the respective eBay site of your listing or transaction, as may be applicable to the nature of your query.

It is generally permissible for sellers to offer a bonus item to bidders within their listing as long as the following requirements are met:

  • In all bonus listings, the seller must state the exact price at which the bonus will apply. For example, it is not permissible to state "I will throw in a state of the art black and white TV if bidding reaches a high enough amount." It is permissible to state "I will throw in a state of the art black and white TV if bidding reaches Rs. 2500."

  • In Dutch Auctions the seller must offer the exact same bonus item to ALL winning bidders. Dutch auction rules require that all winning bidders receive identical items.
    Policy: Bonus listings in which the seller does not state the exact amount at which the bonus will apply and Dutch Auction listings in which the exact same bonus is not offered to all winning bidders are not permitted and will be ended. The insertion fee will be automatically credited for such listings.
