    What fees are changing in the eBay Motors Vehicles categories?
    Effective March 30, 2010, a new simplified fee structure will apply for volume sellers, Successful Listing fees will no longer be assessed for the sale of most vehicles but Insertion Fees will be increased.

    It is still FREE to list your first four (4) vehicles in a 12 month period in the Auction-style or fixed price format. If the vehicle listing is successful at C$2000 or below, the Successful Listing Fee is just C$60 (US$60 for US$ listings that are successful at US$2000 or below). If your winning bid or final price is above C$2000, the Successful Listing Fee is unchanged at C$125 (or US$125 for final price above US$2000 for listings in US$).

    We've also made some changes to the optional feature fees and lowered the pricing for volume sellers. Please review the new fee chart here.

    PowerSeller benefits and discounts still apply.

    Who is eligible for the four FREE Insertion Fee listings?
    All vehicles sellers continue to qualify to list 4 listings with no Insertion Fee every 12 months.

    When will the new pricing structure take effect?
    The price change will be effective for all affected listings starting on March 30, 2010 and thereafter. Please refer to the Fee Chart for full details.

    When am I charged the Successful Listing Fee?
    When applicable, the Successful Listing Fee is charged when you receive your first bid or "buy it now" on a listing without a reserve price or when your reserve price is met. You won't be charged a Successful Listing Fee if there are no bids or "buy it now" on your listing or no bids meet the reserve price on your reserve price listing. Otherwise, you'll be charged a Successful Listing Fee, whether or not you carry out the sale with the buyer. Successful Listing Fees may be refunded if your buyer doesn't pay. When an unpaid item case closes without payment from the buyer, sellers are eligible to receive a successful listing fee credit.
