Terms and Conditions

You can save on fees by sharing your eBay listings to social media. Your Final Value Fee will be reduced to 2.75% + $0.33 incl. GST on sales made within 30 days of the buyer clicking your shared link. Read Terms & Conditions below.

When does the Promotion run?

  • The Promotion runs from 00:01 (AEDT) on 26th July 2022 to 23:59 (AEDT) on 30th September 2022 (“Promotion Period”).
  • eBay reserves the right to cancel or change the Promotion at any time.
  • To qualify for the Promotion, items must be sold within the Promotion Period and within 30 days of the buyer clicking on the Shared Link. 

What is the Promotion?

  • Eligible Sellers who sell one or more of their items shared through the social sharing link feature will be eligible for a discounted variable fee (2.75% + the fixed order fee of $0.33) for those Eligible Transactions (the “Promotion”). 

  • For illustration purposes only: 

    • If the standard variable fee charged for the sale of an item is 11%, and the transaction is an Eligible Transaction, a 2.75% variable fee (inclusive of GST) will be charged instead of 11%. The fixed order fee of $0.33 will still be applied in both cases. 

  • Eligible Transactions means any transaction where:

    • The item listing is created by an Eligible Seller on www.ebay.com.au through the ‘Sell Your Item’ form, eBay Seller Tools, or eBay Mobile applications; 

    • The item is shared via a link generated using the social sharing links as set out at: https://cloud.forbusiness.ebay.com.au/social-share (“Shared Link”)

    • The Shared Link is clicked by a buyer; 

    • The same buyer purchases the shared item, or any item from the Eligible Seller’s store, within 30 days of the Shared Link being clicked by the buyer and within the Promotion Period; and

    • The purchased item is paid for in full by the buyer.

  • Final Value Fees are the selling fees charged on the sale of an item, calculated as a percentage of the total sale amount paid per item (item price plus postage and handling charges), called a variablefee (formerly referred to as a category percentage fee for store subscribers), plus a fixed order fee of $0.33 (incl GST) per order.  More information about eBay selling fees, with or without an eBay store subscription, can be found here

  • Eligible Sellers must be logged into their account to use social sharing links.

  • The Promotion will automatically apply to all Eligible Sellers and Eligible Transactions during the Promotion Period, in most cases. 

  • If the discount does not automatically apply once an Eligible Transaction has been completed, please allow 24 hours for your account to be credited. Any dispute about discounted Final Value Fees must be submitted to eBay in writing within 60 days of the date you incurred such charge, otherwise you waive such dispute and such charge will be final and not subject to challenge.

  • eBay reserves the right to cancel or change the Promotion at any time.

Who is eligible for the Promotion?

  • Eligible Sellers means Sellers who:

    • Have Australia or New Zealand as their registered address on eBay; and

  • This Promotion is not transferable or exchangeable and is only available to the seller who has access to the social sharing links when logged into their account.
