Here's what we found for "Selling fees"

Sellers are charged two basic fees when listing an item on eBay. There are other fees for optional features like listing upgrades and eBay Store subscriptions;.

Insertion fee
  • Charged when you create a listing
  • Sellers receive a number of free listings a month, depending on the type of account they have
  • Based on the item's starting or reserve price, the listing format, and category, though exclusions apply for some categories
Final value fee
  • Charged when the item is sold
  • Based on what the buyer paid, including shipping and handling
  • Sellers are charged a final value fee when an item sells. If a sale wasn't completed with a buyer, a final value fee will still apply. However, sellers may be eligible for a final value fee credit in this case
  • Sellers pay the final value fee, even if the insertion fee was free
Other fees
  • Additional fees apply for listing upgrades such as reserve price or listing in two categories
  • Sellers who have an eBay Store can choose to add custom duration or bold text to listings for an additional fee
  • Sellers pay listing upgrade fees even if the item doesn't sell
  • Monthly subscription fees apply for eBay Store packages, which give sellers access to more free listings and lower final value fees
  • While many selling tool subscriptions are free, some require a monthly fee
