UK Shop subscription benefits and fees

When: April 1, 2023


eBay increases monthly package fees from April 1, 2023 due to the recent investments and improvements made in Shopfronts. Specifically, eBay increases monthly package fees and removes the listing upgrade credit offered to Featured and Anchor Shop package subscribers.

The new monthly price continues to represent great value for money as it is significantly lower than what you would pay without a shop package — with new features like video capability, the ability to send coded coupons to buyers, and enhancements to surfacing your feedback on Shopfronts. If you don’t have a package, you’ll continue to pay as you sell without a monthly fee.

Additionally, eBay doubles the free monthly allowance of 7-day auction-style listings. For example, if you currently have a Basic Shop package, you’ll be able to list up to 100 7-day auction style listings. Please see the table below for the increased allowances.

All other shop allowances and benefits remain unchanged. You'll continue to receive an eBay packaging voucher worth £10 (if you subscribe to a Featured Shop) or £20 (if you subscribe to an Anchor Shop) each month to spend on eBay-branded packaging supplies.

Fee credit updates on the DE market

When: April 1, 2023


Per-order fee credit for canceled transactions

Currently, eBay keeps a €0.35 per-order fee when an order is canceled due to a buyer request. This is in line with fees that other marketplaces and third-party payment processors apply in similar buyer cancellation cases. We're excited to announce that starting April 1, 2023, eBay will refund the entire final value fee, including the €0.35 per-order fee, when you approve a buyer’s cancellation request. We recognize that buyers may cancel transactions for various reasons at no fault of the seller and we want to support you by refunding 100% of the final value fee.

Per-order fee credit on full voluntary refunds (excludes SNAD)

Moreover, starting April 1, 2023, when a buyer returns an item for any of the following reasons, eBay will extend the €0.35 credit for returns that you voluntarily refunded:

  • Ordered by mistake
  • Don’t like it
  • Changed my mind
  • Doesn't fit
  • Found a better price

eBay will also credit the €0.35 per-order fee when you issue a full refund of the order through the Send refund flow.

Prorated final value fee credits for partial refunds

Starting April 1, 2023, when you issue a partial refund to a buyer, eBay will automatically credit a prorated portion of your final value fee based on the adjusted total amount of the sale. Along with this, eBay will automatically credit prorated portions of other applicable fees including Promoted Listings Standard and international fees. Fees such as the €0.35 per-order fee, Promoted Listings Express fee, and Promoted Listings Advanced fee will not be refunded. eBay wants to support your efforts to make things right for your buyers and adjust your fees accordingly.
