Estimate your fees for a specific listing:

How fees are calculated

Basic fees

Insertion fee

When you list an item on eBay, you may be charged a listing (or insertion) fee. If applicable, you're charged one insertion fee per listing, per category, regardless of the quantity of items.

Final value fee

If the item sells, you're charged a final value fee. Final value fees are calculated based on the total amount of the sale and are charged per item.


The total amount of the sale is the final price of the item, shipping charges, and any other amounts you may charge the buyer. Sales tax is not included.

Optional advanced listing upgrade and supplemental service fees

Advanced listing upgrade fees

If you add advanced listing upgrades to your listing, fees apply. Not all listing upgrades are available with every listing tool.

Supplemental service fees

If you use supplemental services, charges associated with these services may be included on your seller invoice as fees.

The selling format (auction-style or fixed price) and category you select determines fee amounts. Learn more about selecting a selling format.

Optional advanced listing upgrade fees

  • Fees are charged per listing or per category, if multiple categories are selected.

  • If you set up automatic relisting for your item, you're charged the fees for any advanced listing upgrades each time your listing is renewed during the automatic relisting period.  For example: If you have a 10-day fixed price listing with an advanced listing upgrade and you elect automatic relisting, your listing may renew up to 3 times, and each time the fee for the advanced listing upgrade is recharged.
