When you sell on eBay, you have access to a variety of benefits that you can’t get with many online marketplaces or classified ad sites, such as marketing and advertising tools, seller protection and a customer support team. 

To deliver all of these benefits, we charge a fee based on your success: you pay only when you sell.

What fees you’ll pay

Final value fee

The final value fee is charged only when your item sells on eBay, and the percentage depends on the category of item. Final value fees are paid on total cost, including postage.

Insertion fee

One of the two main fees for listing and selling on eBay is the insertion fee. It is non-refundable, and the amount you’re charged will depend on the monthly fee entitlement you can benefit from as part of your store subscription. There are also a variety of solutions to list for free on eBay.

How to pay your fees

We try to make it as easy as possible to keep on top of your fees. When you create a seller account, you’ll need to add an automated payment method to pay for any eBay selling fees or charges. Each month you’ll receive an invoice that breaks down exactly what you need to pay.
