Fees for selling vehicles on eBay Motors

The fees for listing and selling a vehicle on eBay Motors are different to those in other categories, but the overall structure is the same. We charge a listing fee (also known as an insertion fee) when you create your listing and a final value fee when your vehicle is sold. You'll also pay fees for any optional listing upgrades and supplemental services you use.
