Reviewing your invoice

Your monthly invoice summarise your billing activity as a seller. The invoice provides details about the amount due as well as any payments, refunds, discounts, credits and fees that were applied to your account during the billing cycle.

How to view your invoice

You can view any of your invoices from the last 18 months.

To display an invoice:
  1. Go to My eBay and click the Account tab.

  2. In the Invoices box, choose the invoice you want to display from the Select Invoice drop-down menu.

  3. Click Go.

What's in your invoice

Your invoice is divided into three sections:

  • Account summary

    This section provides an overview of your invoice and summarises any new billing activity since your last invoice, such as new fees, other charges relating to your selling, credits or other promotional savings, and shows your new amount due.

    If the total amount due is $1.00 or greater, it will be charged to the automatic payment method you chose for your account. Learn more about automatic payment methods.

  • Announcements, notices and helpful links

    This section contains notices, announcements and links to account information, fee calculators and explanations, as well as other information related to your selling activity.

  • Billing details

    This section of your invoice displays the individual payments, refunds, discounts, credits and new fees that make up the total amount due. If you sell a large number of items and find that this portion of your invoice is too long or detailed, consider switching to a summarised version of your invoice. Learn more about changing your invoice format.

Why the amount due can differ from the amount charged

Sometimes, there can be a slight difference between the total amount due on your invoice and the amount that's charged to you. This can occur because between the time your invoice is calculated and the time the payment is processed, we apply any credits to your account that occur, such as payments and item-based credits, but we don't include any new charges. Those new charges will appear on your next invoice.

If you don't want to apply your credits to your automatic payment amount, you can change your seller billing preferences in My eBay. With this change, any credits applied to your account after we create an invoice will apply to next month's invoice amount.

To change how we apply credits to your payment:
  1. Go to My eBay, click the Account tab, and then click Site Preferences.

  2. Under General Preferences, locate Seller billing preferences and click the Show link.

  3. Select either Apply only recent payments to automatic payment amount or Apply recent payments and credits to automatic payment amount.

  4. Click Apply.

Note: This setting does not affect payments, which will always be deducted from your automatic payment amount.

Why you might see a rounding adjustment

Your account balance can appear to be off by a few cents when compared to a manual calculation of your invoice line items. This is because we round off final value fees, which sometimes contain a fraction of a cent.

What to do if your account balance is overdue

You're responsible for paying all fees by the payment due date.

If your account balance is past due, you can make a one-time payment to pay your balance in full. If you've set up an automatic payment method and your account balance is past due, you might need to update your automatic payment method.

If your account balance remains past due, your account may be suspended for non-payment, you'll be subject to late fees, and you may be responsible for collection and related legal costs. Learn more about payment requirements and late fees.
