eBay.com.au fees

The basic cost of selling an item on eBay.com.au = 

   Insertion fee (if applicable)
+ Feature fees (if used)
+ Final value fee (if sold)

Fees vary depending on the starting price, sale price, postage and handling charges, listing format and category, and whether you have an eBay Store. All sellers also get a set number of free listings per month.

How fees are calculated

Basic listing and selling fees

Insertion fee

Insertion fees are charged per listing. eBay gives you a number of free listings each month.

Final value fee

Final value fees are charged per item sold.

  • A final value fee applies whenever you sell an item.

  • The fee is based on the total amount paid by the buyer (item price + postage and handling charges).

Fee amounts depend on the selling format (auction-style, Fixed Price or Classifieds) and category (e.g. Media, Collectables, Motors) you select, as well as your Store Package, if you have one.

  • To help estimate your fees for listing a specific item, use our fee calculator.

  • To help work out which Store Package might be right for you, use our fee illustrator.

Fees for optional features and services

Feature fees

These only apply if you select optional features for your listing (e.g. subtitle) to increase your chances of a successful sale.

  • Adding Buy It Now to an auction-style listing is free for sellers without an eBay Store.

  • Up to12 pictures per listing are free with eBay picture hosting, including zoom and enlarge features.

Subscription fees

These monthly fees only apply if you subscribe to a selling tool such as an eBay Store or Selling Manager Pro.

Supplemental service fees

These only apply if you use supplemental services such as printing postage labels.

Basic listing and selling fees

All sellers registered on eBay.com.au can take advantage of a set number of free listings available every month.

Things to note about free listing entitlements:
  • The free listing entitlement is available in most categories (see exclusions).

  • The free listing entitlement only applies to the first category on your listing. If you choose to list your item in two categories, you'll pay an insertion fee for the listing in the second category.

  • Auctions within the Collectables category are included in the monthly free listing entitlement for Stores sellers.

  • If you're a non-business seller, you can set your items to automatically relist up to three times if they don't sell, at no extra cost and without counting towards your monthly free listings.

  • If you choose to manually relist an item, it will be counted towards your total listings for the month.

    For example, if you list 25 items and then manually re-list 20 of them (without a Store), you'll be charged insertion fees for the last five listings.

These insertion fees apply to listings beyond the free listing entitlement.

Things to note about insertion fees:
  • Insertion fees are charged per listing and are non-refundable. (As with a newspaper advertisement, you pay this basic listing fee even if your item isn't sold.)

  • Insertion fees only apply once you've used all your free listings (or for the second category, if you choose this option on a free listing).

  • If you choose to list your item in two categories, you'll pay an insertion fee for the listing in the second category.

  • For Store subscribers, insertion fees also apply to auction-style listings.

  • Good 'Til Cancelled listings renew automatically every 30 days unless all of the items sell, you end the listing, or a listing violates an eBay policy. Insertion fees are charged every 30 day period.

  • If you set up automatic relisting for your item, you'll pay an insertion fee for the initial listing. If your item doesn't sell, it will then be relisted up to three times with no additional insertion fee and without counting towards your free listing entitlement for the month.

  • eBay may credit insertion fees in certain circumstances. Find out more about insertion fee credits.

These fees apply whenever an item sells and are calculated as a percentage of the total amount paid by the buyer (item price + postage and handling charges).

    • The postage and handling charges include postage, handling fees and any additional services paid for by the buyer (e.g. Signature on Delivery).

  • You can request a final value fee credit if an item isn't paid for, or you need to cancel the transaction. Find out more about final value fee credits.

Things to note about Store subscription fees:
  • eBay Store Package subscriptions are charged monthly and include a free subscription to Selling Manager Pro.

  • Each Store Package has its own fee structure for insertion fees and final value fees, as well as a number of free listings per month.

  • When you sign up for a new Store or upgrade your subscription, your Stores benefits start immediately. A mandatory subscription period applies (until the end of the first full calendar month after you subscribe).

  • If you cancel your subscription, you'll be charged until the end of the calendar month (or the mandatory subscription period, if this still applies). You'll continue to receive your Stores benefits during that time.

  • If you downgrade your subscription, you'll be charged at the higher rate and continue to receive those Stores benefits until the end of the calendar month (or the mandatory subscription period, if this still applies).

When you buy and print postage on eBay, the charges will be added to your account.

Things to note about supplemental service fees:
  • If you use supplemental services offered on eBay by third parties, then charges associated with those services may also appear on your invoice.

  • Depending on the service, these charges may be included on seller invoices and charged to your automatic payment method along with your eBay selling fees.

International selling fees

The fees on this page apply to listings on eBay.com.au. If you list an item directly on another eBay site (e.g. eBay.com or eBay.co.uk), the fees for that site will apply.
 

Sellers with an Anchor Store or Featured Store subscription can get a discount on international selling.

The insertion fees below are for Fixed Price 30-day and Good 'Til Cancelled listings. These fees apply if:
  • You're in Australia and registered on eBay.com.au

  • You have an Anchor or Featured Store

  • You're meeting minimum performance standards for the site you're listing on

  • You've opted in to international selling

What you need to know about your eBay fees

  • Your listing fee subtotal appears in the Your fees so far section at the bottom of the listing form and again under Review your listing.

  • Your monthly invoice summarises your account activity (e.g. fees, payments) and shows the amount due and the payment due date. You can also see your recent account activity for the last four months by viewing your Account status page.

  • We require payment in full each month on accounts with an amount due of $1.00 or more. Learn more about paying your invoice.

  • If you haven't paid by the payment due date, you may be billed late fees, your eBay account may be suspended, and you may be responsible for collection and legal related costs.

  • If your seller account is suspended for any reason, any amounts owed will become due and payable immediately. eBay reserves the right to immediately charge any amounts you haven't previously disputed to the billing method you're using.

  • There may be instances when your listing doesn't appear in search results until several hours after you've created it. eBay can't guarantee exact listing durations.

  • We may place third-party advertisements on any web page within our site.

  • All fees are in Australian dollars, unless otherwise stated.
