Here's what we found for "Fees for selling"

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

Insertion fee - opens in new window or tab
  • Charged when you create a listing.
  • Sellers receive a number of free listings per month, depending on whether they have an eBay Store.
  • Based on the item's starting or reserve price, the listing format and category, though exclusions apply for some categories.
Final value fee - opens in new window or tab
  • Charged when your item is sold.
  • Based on what the buyer paid, including postage.
  • If a sale isn'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 a final value fee even if the insertion fee was free.
Other fees - opens in new window or tab
  • Additional fees apply for listing upgrades such as subtitle, reserve price or listing in two categories.
  • Sellers pay listing upgrade fees even if the item doesn't sell.
  • Monthly subscription fees apply for eBay Store packages, but these give sellers access to more free listings and lower final value fees.
  • While many selling tools are free, some require a monthly fee.
  • PayPal fees are paid separately through PayPal.
