Billing and payment

If eBay is managing your payments:

  • Most fees and selling costs will be automatically deducted from your sales proceeds prior to payout. Details of the fees or costs will be on your Financial statement.

If eBay is not managing your payments:

  • Your fees are added to your seller account - opens in new window or tab and you receive a detailed monthly invoice showing the amount due. We require payment in full each month on accounts with an amount due of $1.00 or more.
  • If you haven't paid by the due date specified on your invoice, you may be billed late fees, we may limit or suspend the services which eBay provides to you, your eBay account may be suspended, and you may be responsible for collection and legal related costs.
