Where will your listings appear?
Standard campaigns offer maximum coverage across the eBay network, with more than 100 placements for where your ad can appear on eBay and preferred access to external ad placements on eBay partner sites. These placements include the homepage, search results, view item pages, and checkout on desktop, mobile, and the eBay app.
Pay only when your items sell
Promoted Listings Standard is a cost-per-sale campaign model. You’re only charged if a buyer clicks on your promoted listing or on the heart icon to add an item to their watchlist and then purchases any of your Promoted Listings Standard items within 30 days. The cost per sale is based on the ad rate you set.
