Designed with Canadians in mind

Global exposure

When you list on eBay.ca, your item shows up in search results on eBay.ca and eBay.com. As long as you've provided a shipping service for US buyers on your eBay.ca listing, you'll get exactly the same exposure on eBay.com as if you'd listed directly on eBay.com. And if you ship internationally, your eBay.ca listing can also show up in search results on other global eBay sites.

PayPal makes it easy and seamless for international buyers to pay. Regardless of the currency you list in, buyers will always see and pay in the currency of their choice—and PayPal takes care of currency conversion behind the scenes, so that you're always paid in the currency you listed in.

Services your buyers trust

Increase buyer confidence by adding Canadian-branded shipping services to your listing from Canada Post, FedEx Canada, or UPS Canada.

Offering specific, Canadian-branded shipping services to your buyers increases confidence by giving them a better idea of exactly when and how they'll receive their item—which can make them more likely to buy. When you list on eBay.com, you're not able to offer buyers specific shipping services on your listing—instead, they'll see a generic shipping service.

Calculated shipping is also available for popular Canada Post parcel services—add weight and dimensions for your item, and let eBay calculate shipping for your domestic and international buyers. Learn more about eBay Canada's shipping partners.

Using currency exchange to your advantage

Listing on eBay.ca can also offer protection from fluctuating exchange rates for long-term listings like Good 'Til Cancelled—list in CAD, and the price of your item will automatically be converted into buyers' local currencies using the latest exchange rates, without any pricing adjustment needed on your part. This can be especially useful when selling to US buyers—with a strong US Dollar and more buying power, your item, listed in CAD and converted to USD on eBay.com, can appear discounted and stands out against domestic items.

Save money on final value fees

Final value fees are calculated on listings that end in a sale, and take into account the final price of the item, shipping charges, and any other amounts you may charge the buyer. If you choose your listing site and shipping service carefully, you can save money on your final value fees. Here's how:


If you list on eBay.ca

If you list on eBay.ca and a Canadian buyer purchases your item, your final value fee for shipping is calculated using the shipping service that the buyer chooses.

If you list on eBay.ca and a US or international buyer purchases your item, your final value fee for shipping is calculated using whichever service is less expensive, either:

  • The first domestic service in your listing that isn't express, or
  • Your international or express shipping service

For example:

Final value fee for an item listed on eBay.ca with a Canadian buyer:

10% x $100.00 CAD
+ 10% x $15 CAD
= Final value fee $11.50 CAD

Final value fee for an item listed on eBay.ca with a US buyer:

10% x $100.00 CAD
+ 10% x $15 CAD
= Final value fee $11.50 CAD

An identically-priced item listed on eBay.com and sold to a US or Canadian buyer would cost $13.00 in final value fees—a savings of $1.50 on a single item.

If you list on eBay.com

If you list on eBay.com and a US buyer purchases your item, your final value fee for shipping is calculated using the shipping service that the buyer chooses.

If you list on eBay.com and a Canadian or international (non US) buyer purchases your item, your final value fee for shipping is calculated using whichever service is less expensive, either:

  • The first US shipping service in your listing that isn't express, or
  • Your Canadian or express shipping service

For example:

Final value fee for an item listed on eBay.com with a Canadian buyer:

10% x $74.00 USD
+ 10% x $22.20 USD
= Final value fee $9.62 USD ($13.00 CAD)

Final value fee for an item listed on eBay.com with a US buyer:

10% FVF x $74.00 USD
+ 10% x $22.20 USD
= Final value fee $9.62 USD ($13.00 CAD)

An identically-priced item listed on eBay.ca and sold to a US or Canadian buyer would cost $11.50 in final value fees—$1.50 less.


You can save even more by offering free shipping within Canada—because domestic shipping is free, you won't pay any final value fees on shipping, whether your buyer is within Canada or the US.

For example, if a buyer chooses international shipping and you specified free shipping as your first domestic option on your eBay.ca listing, you don't pay any final value fees on shipping charges for that item. If international or express shipping is the only service you offer, your final value fee for shipping charges will be calculated on that service. Learn more about how final value fees are calculated.
