eBay selling fees & credits

The exact cost of selling an item is based on the types of items you sell, how your listing is set up, your seller performance and service metrics, and whether or not you have an eBay Store and whether you use any optional features and services.

Selling fees without an eBay Store

Full details of our standard fees for selling on eBay.com.au. We charge two main selling fees: an insertion fee when you create a listing, and a final value fee when your item is sold. The amount we charge depends on the item's price and the format and category you choose for your listing. We give you some free listings each month, so you won't be charged an insertion fee for those.

eBay Stores selling fees

Full details of our fees for selling with a Store on eBay.com.au. For a monthly subscription, you can run your own eBay Store. eBay Store packages offer more free listings and lower final value fees than selling without an eBay Store. The exact fees and benefits depend on the eBay Store package you choose. We also charge different insertion fees and optional feature fees when you have an eBay Store.

Fees for selling a vehicle on eBay Motors

Full details of our fees for selling a vehicle on eBay.com.au. The fees for listing and selling a vehicle are different to those in other categories, but the overall structure is the same. We charge an insertion fee when you create a vehicle listing, and a final value fee when your vehicle is sold.

Fee credits

You may be eligible for a final value fee credit if something went wrong with a sale. Insertion fees can sometimes be credited for relisted items. If eBay removes a listing, whether you get a credit depends on why it was removed.

Other non-eBay fees

Keep in mind that there are other charges that you may be responsible for that aren't part of eBay, such as fees for using PayPal or other payment services, or taxes on your eBay sales.

Fees for using PayPal

We don't charge fees for using PayPal on eBay. However, if you accept PayPal payments, PayPal will charge a fee when you complete a sale and the buyer pays with PayPal.

Taxes and import charges

When you sell on eBay, you're responsible for paying any taxes that your country requires, such as Goods and Services Tax (GST). You're also responsible for informing international buyers about import charges they'll need to pay when they receive their item.


Billing & payments

When you start selling, we'll ask you to set up billing details and a payment method for your monthly invoice, but you can change them at any time. You can keep track of all your selling fees, invoices, payments you've made and any credits you've received, as well as your monthly invoices in My eBay.

Setting up and changing your payment method

When you create a seller account, you'll need to add a payment method to pay for any eBay selling fees or charges. You can choose PayPal, direct debit or credit card as your payment method.

Viewing your account balance

Your eBay account balance shows your current balance of any fees from your recent selling activity. It also shows any past due amounts.

Updating your billing settings

You can change or update your billing information – including your address, billing currency and the payment details you use for automatic payments – whenever you need to.

Viewing your invoice

Your invoice summarises all your monthly selling activity. It shows payments you've made, selling fees and discounts, as well as any refunds or credits applied to your account during the billing cycle.
