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.

We'll email you a monthly invoice with details of all your seller fees – including fees for listings, sales, and subscriptions, refunds made to buyers, and postage label charges. With a payment method set up, you don't need to do anything – we'll charge the invoiced amount automatically by the due date.

How to set up a payment method

Here's how to set up or change your payment method:

  1. Go to your Account in My eBay
  2. Look for Payment methods for seller fees and select Change automatic payment method
  3. Choose your preferred payment method from the dropdown menu
  4. Select Set up automatic payments

If you choose to pay by PayPal, you'll be redirected to the PayPal site to complete the process. If you choose direct debit or credit card, you'll need to enter your bank or card details.

Tip
To make sure we use the new information for your next invoice, update your payment details at least two business days before your invoice date.

How to make a one-time payment

You can make a one-time payment on your eBay seller account using PayPal, direct debit, credit card, or money order. Just be sure to make your payment at least 5 days before the due date. If you mail in a money order, it’s best to send it 10 days before the due date to allow for delivery time.

You can make a one-time payment anytime. Here's how:

  1. Go to your Account in My eBay
  2. Look for Payment methods for seller fees, select one-time payment, and enter your payment details

Once you set up a payment method, we'll automatically deduct any amount due on the date specified on your monthly eBay invoice.
