Tips for listing
Take high-quality photosOur app can clean up your image and add a white background. Choose a well-lit place, take photos from various angles and capture any blemishes for transparency.
Write a great titleWe’ll recommend keywords buyers use when searching to help your listing stand out. Avoid all caps and focus on specifics like brand, model, size and colour.
Choose a buying formatWe’ll make a recommendation, but if you’d prefer to let someone buy your item immediately, choose Buy It Now. If you’re selling a collectible, or want buyers to compete, choose Auction.
Set the right priceWe’ll recommend a price based on recent sales of similar items. To decide for yourself, think like a buyer and see how other sellers price their items. Best Offer lets buyers know you’re open to negotiating.
Pick a delivery serviceWe provide recommendations for delivery and packaging. You’ll get a discounted rate on postage by using eBay delivery labels. To sell locally, take advantage of our collection services.
Once your item sells, you’ll only pay for any optional upgrades you choose, and a final value fee. Your first 1,000 listings each month are free and, after, there’s a 35p insertion fee per listing. Learn more about fees.
We’ll help you pick which delivery methods you want to offer. By offering more than one delivery option, you can attract different types of buyers. Once the item has sold, purchase a label from eBay, prefilled with your buyer’s address. When you print a postage label on eBay, you'll save money compared to what you'd pay to a carrier for most services. Pack your item, apply the label and take it to the nearest drop-off location or have it collected.
When creating your listing, select local collection as a delivery option. Once the buyer pays, they’ll receive a QR code and a 6-digit code, which you can scan or enter with the app to confirm the sale.
We provide a number of discounted delivery options through partnerships with major carriers. Review our eBay delivery postage rates to see how much it will cost to send your item.
Buyers can use a variety of payment methods such as credit and debit cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal and PayPal Credit.
For most items, we can provide a price recommendation for you based on recently sold, similar items. How you price your item can depend on how you prefer to sell it—Auction or Buy it now. Choose a lower starting price for auctions to create more interest. Buyers will make you offers that you can accept or decline with Best Offer.
We understand that things can happen that are out of your control as a seller. When they do, we have your back. Learn more about seller protection
You can sell almost anything, from homemade goods to used or unused items from your closet. We restrict items that violate any laws, or infringe on intellectual property.
To get started, select List an item. We’ll help you create and verify your account, and set-up payment information, during your first listing. Have your preferred payment account details on hand and be ready to receive a call or text on your phone for verification.
You can choose to receive payouts of available funds daily or weekly. Regardless of how the buyer pays, payouts are within 1 working day. Any sellers not eligible will have payment initiated within two working days (Monday to Friday, excluding bank holidays) of confirming the buyer’s payment. While the vast majority of users should receive the money in their account within hours of the payment being initiated, some sellers may experience longer times due to their bank processing.
