Changing billing currency

You can choose to be billed in a specific currency to make it easier to pay eBay fees. The currencies you can select depend on which eBay site you registered on.

eBay currently accepts the following currencies.

  • Canadian Dollar

  • U.S. Dollar

  • Euro

  • Australian Dollar

  • British Pound

  • Japanese Yen

  • Swiss Franc

Requirements
  • Your existing account balance must be current.

  • You must not have switched your billing currency within the past 12 months.

  • Your registered address must be up to date. The payment method you can select depends on your country of residence.

Note: An automatic payment method is required to change your billing currency to U.S. dollars, Canadian dollars, or Japanese Yen.

To pay your fees in a different billing currency, go to the Switch Billing Currency page and select the appropriate currency from the drop-down menu.

What will happen
  • When you change your billing currency, eBay opens a new currency account under your current username.

  • After the change, all fees for new listings will be billed to your new currency account. Additional fees for active listings (for example, if the item is revised, or ends with a winner and is charged a final value fee) are charged to the original currency account. Your old account will be considered "pending" and needs to be kept current or it will become delinquent if it is not paid in full within two billing cycles.

  • You will receive separate invoices for the two accounts until the old account is paid in full.

  • If you qualify for a PowerSeller discount, and need to change your PowerSeller billing currency, you should change the currency on the first day of the billing cycle to receive the discount in the new currency.
