EBay said its marketplace is eliminating sneaker seller fees in North America on any sneakers sold at $100 or more while unveiling the new December Drop series.
The drops signify the continued dominance of eBay in the sneaker resale game, with nearly six million total sneakers sold on eBay in 2019. With almost 1.5 million live sneaker listings3 right now, the move is expected to grow Ebay’s selection of new, rare, and emerging styles across every price and time zone. The drops are available at www.Ebay.com/Sneakers.
“As the originator of the sneaker resale game, eBay continues to be a top source for emerging and collectible styles, and with high demand, we want our sellers and buyers to get in on the action,” said Jeff Chan, head of men’s footwear and apparel, eBay. “For our community of diehard sneakerheads, eliminating selling fees allows them to turn their kicks into more cash to fund future purchases, and results in a more robust sneaker inventory for shoppers everywhere.”
Beginning today at 9 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. ET, eBay kicks off their ‘December Drop’ series4 to celebrate the most hyped sneakers and the biggest moments in sneaker culture this year. Teaming up with the top seller, Stadium Goods, shoppers can cop the Yeezy 700 in four-different colorways, Nike X Sacai LD Waffle collection, Air Jordan X Travis Scott and more.
