What does it cost to sell on eBay?
The cost to sell on eBay varies depending on which eBay site you're selling on, and how you list your item. When you sell an item, you're able to review your fees on the listing form before you submit your listing.
The fees we charge fall into 3 categories:
Insertion fees: When you list an item, you're charged an insertion fee for the listing. The insertion fee is based on the starting price and the category of the item. If you specify a reserve price, the insertion fee is based on the reserve price amount.
Final value fees: If the item sells, you're charged a final value fee. The final value fee is based on the item's total cost to the buyer. The item's total cost to the buyer includes item price and shipping costs plus any other costs to the buyer (less any sales tax).
Note: For vehicle listings on eBay.ca in the Motors category this fee is called the successful listing fee. For listings in the eBay Real Estate category this fee is called the notice fee.
Listing upgrades: If you add upgrades to your listing, such as a subtitle or extra pictures, there's an additional charge for each listing upgrade.
