Selling fees for eBay Sellers

eBay now manages payments. If eBay sends your sales proceeds directly to your bank account or to your Payoneer account, and you see Available funds in your payments summary, then your account is already activated for managed payments and the fees on this page apply to you. Any items sold once eBay starts managing your payments will be subject to these fees.

If you have an eBay Store, fees are different for Store subscribers. Please read this article.

Insertion fees

Every month, you get up to 250 zero insertion fee listings, or more if you have an eBay Store. Learn more about how zero insertion fee listings work, including the terms and exclusions for those listings.

After you've used your zero insertion fee allowance, insertion fees are:

Good 'Til Cancelled listings

Good 'Til Cancelled listings are fixed price listings that renew automatically once per calendar month. eBay charges an insertion fee and applicable optional listing upgrade fees when you list your item for the first time, and each time it renews. These listings count towards your monthly zero insertion fee listings. Fee amounts are based on the terms in effect when the listing goes live and when it renews.

Final value fees

eBay charges one final value fee when your item sells, and you don't have to worry about third-party payment processing fees. This fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount of the sale, plus $0.30 per order.

The total amount of the sale includes the item price, any handling charges, the shipping service the buyer selects, sales tax, and any other applicable fees. If you offer 1-day or international shipping as well as a cheaper or free option (like domestic shipping), the total amount of the sale is calculated based on the cheapest domestic option you offer. If you only offer 1-day or international shipping but no cheaper option like domestic shipping, the total amount of the sale is calculated based on the service the buyer chooses.

If you're in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam and your item isn't located in the US, the total amount of the sale is always calculated based on the shipping option your buyer chooses.

An order is defined as any number of items purchased by the same buyer at checkout with the same shipping method.

If you need to refund the buyer or cancel the sale, you may be eligible for a credit of the variable percentage portion of the final value fee provided that you refund the buyer in full in resolution of a return or cancellation request. The $0.30 per order fee will not be credited.

Fees for optional listing upgrades

You can enhance your listings to help make them stand out by adding certain features, such as a subtitle, or bold font. The fees for these optional listing upgrades vary depending on your item's price and the listing format and duration. We've outlined the differences below.

Tip

You can add up to 12 photos with zoom and enlarge, as well as schedule your listings to start and end at a future date and time, free of charge. If you use the Classified Ad format, scheduling a listing will cost $0.10.

Additional final value fees

You may be charged final value fees if you violate our policy of buying or selling outside of eBay, or eBay may apply additional final value fees if you are not meeting our performance expectations.

Buying or selling outside of eBay

If you offer or reference your contact information or ask a buyer for their contact information in the context of buying or selling outside of eBay, you'll be charged a final value fee based on the total amount of the sale even if your item doesn't sell. In this situation, the total amount of the sale is determined as follows:

  • Auction-style listing format: The total amount of the sale is the auction start price, the Buy It Now price (if applicable), the reserve price (if applicable), or the price identified between the buyer and seller, whichever is highest.
  • Fixed price listing format: The total amount of the sale is the fixed price or the price identified between the buyer and seller, whichever is higher.

Sellers not meeting performance expectations

Additional final value fees may apply on sales in the following circumstances:

  • If your account doesn't meet our minimum seller performance standards for the US in the evaluation on the 20th of the month, you'll be charged an additional 5% on the final value fees applicable to sales in the following calendar month. Go to your Seller Dashboard to check your current seller level. This fee does not apply to Above Standard and eBay Top-rated Sellers.
  • If your rate of 'Item not as described' return requests is evaluated in your service metrics as Very High in the evaluation on the 20th of the month in one or more categories, you will be charged an additional 5% on the final value fees for sales in those categories in the following calendar month. You can view your personalized service metrics on your Service Metrics dashboard in Seller Hub.

Any additional final value fees will be calculated as a percentage of the total amount of the sale. eBay will indicate which listings are subject to additional fees on your Account Summary.

Note: If your account isn't meeting our minimum seller performance standards and you're rated Very High in your rate of 'Item not as described' return requests, you'll only be charged the additional final value fee for not meeting our minimum seller performance standards.

Dispute fee

Your buyer may open a payment dispute with their payment institution if they believe there's an issue with their order. A payment dispute is when a buyer initiates a chargeback or other type of dispute with their payment institution (for example, their credit card provider or PayPal). The final decision for refunding the buyer is made by the payment institution.

If you’re found responsible for the disputed amount, eBay charges a Dispute fee for each dispute. The amount of the Dispute fee depends on which eBay site the listing was created on. When you list an item on ebay.com, the Dispute fee is $20.00 (before sales taxes). If you accept the payment dispute and issue a refund, eBay will waive the Dispute fee, and you’ll be responsible for the refund amount issued to your buyer.

International fee

If your registered address is in the US, eBay charges an International fee if either:

  • The delivery address for the item (entered by the buyer during checkout) is outside the US, or
  • The buyer's registered address is outside the US (regardless of the delivery address for the item)

This fee is calculated as 1.65% of the total amount of the sale and is automatically deducted from your sales.

If your registered address is not in the US, please refer to the fee page for your country or region of residence for your International fee information.
