How to Create a Sale Event and Markdown on eBay

It’s no secret that shoppers love sales, coupons, rebates, seasonal pricing, and other related markdowns. Having a Markdown event will increase traffic to your store, offload unsold inventory, and attract a more price-conscious group of customers. With eBay, you can create a sale or markdown event and ride in with these retail-driven holidays such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

Now let’s walk you through on how to do it.
