Classified groups are a traditional way of trading in many countries; people advertise their used goods under the various columns and meet with each other on a platform, which has some mutual benefits for both the parties.
International experience and expertise of eBay have now been translated into local benefits, where they are entertaining the local needs of classified markets in various countries.
What really worked for them was the repackaging of the intent. Instead of dubbing it as a sales and purchase operation, they dubbed it as an exercise where people are sharing waste products and thus helping each other and cutting down the scrap.
Currently, eBay classified groups are serving people in more than 1000 cities across the world and the USA acts as the parent concern of these operations.

Which one would attract you more? Obviously the latter! Developers at eBay know this art of packaging the goods for the current season, and the same thing reflects in their discount coupons.

These coupons give you an opportunity to purchase multiple gifts that are a part of the package offered by the coupons.
