Tips for listing
Use our pre-filled templatesWe take the heavy lifting out of listing your item by providing pre-filled templates based on millions of items that have sold. You have full control to customise and edit as much or as little as you like.
Take high quality photosWhen taking photos, choose a well-lit place, take photos from various angles and capture any blemishes to help your buyers avoid surprises. Use our tools to clean up your images and even add a clean white background.
Be detailed in your title and descriptionMake sure your title accurately describes what you are selling. This is the first thing a buyer will see when looking at your listing. Describe your item as best as you can to give potential buyers as much information as possible. This will ensure buyers are happy with their purchase and there are no surprises.
Price it rightWe use data from millions of items sold to recommend the right price. You can even filter out low-ballers with our Best Offer feature by setting a minimum offer amount.
Postage made easyOnce your item has sold it's never been easier to post it to your buyer. Print a discounted label and even have a carrier pick it up directly from your front door.
Once your item sells, we charge 10.9% of the total amount paid by the buyer (including postage and handling). This percentage may change for select services. Your first 40 listings each month are free. Learn more about fees
Once your item has been sold, print a discounted label from our postage label service. You can choose to either drop it off at the post office, another convenient drop-off location or have a carrier pick it up directly from your home. Tracking will be automatically uploaded to your transaction to make it easy for your buyer to follow. Learn more about eBay postage labels.
We provide a number of discounted postage options through partnerships with major carriers. You can use our postage calculator to estimate how much it should cost.
You can use any box or parcel you may already have at home as long as it is packaged safely. Alternatively, you can purchase boxes and satchels from the post office.
For most items, we can provide a price recommendation for you based on recently sold, similar items. How you price your item can depend on how you prefer to sell it, whether as an auction or as a Buy It Now listing. Choosing a lower starting price for auctions can help create more interest.
We understand that things can happen that are out of your control as a seller. When they do, we have your back with 24/7 support. We protect you against abusive buyers and investigate sales issues to ensure fair outcomes for both sides.
You can sell almost anything, from homemade goods to used or new items. We do restrict items that violate any laws or infringe on intellectual property.
To get started, select List an item. We'll help you create and verify your account and set up payment information during your first listing. You'll want to have your preferred payment account details on hand and be ready to receive a call or text on your phone for verification during this step.
