Paying your eBay seller fees

Selling fees are charges for selling your items on eBay, such as Insertion Fees, Final Value Fees, and fees for optional listing features. Learn more about seller fees and how they are determined.

When you set up your seller account, you specify an automatic payment method to pay your seller fees  You can also pay fees with a one-time payment. If you make a one-time payment, check your invoice date to make sure you allow at least five days between your scheduled automatic payment and your one-time payment to prevent duplicate payments.

You can update your payment information or remove a payment method from your account at any time.

Payment methods

You can pay your seller fees in several ways.

When you sign up for monthly PayPal payments, your amount due is automatically deducted from your PayPal account each month - no sooner than 10 days after you receive your invoice. You can also make a one-time payment using PayPal.
  • PayPal withdraws funds from your PayPal account balance.

  • If there are insufficient funds in your PayPal account, PayPal uses the funding source you selected when you signed up for automatic PayPal payments.

  • If you didn't select a preferred funding source during that process, PayPal uses whatever PayPal funding source you've provided.

You can change your PayPal funding source for eBay fees at any time from the Profile page in your PayPal account. You can also specify funding sources that you don't want to use for automatic payments.
Credit card
If you place your credit card on file (Visa or MasterCard), we can automatically charge your fees to this card each month. Your credit card is usually charged five to seven days after you receive your invoice. You can also make a one-time payment with your credit card.
Direct debit
Direct Debit is available to sellers who are billed in Australian dollars and who have an Australian bank account. With Direct Debit, we automatically deduct your seller fees from your bank account on the same day each month.
To sign up for Direct Debit, you need to provide your bank account and BSB numbers, which are shown on your bank statement. You can also make a one-time Direct Debit payment from your bank account. Your payment will be posted to your account within two business days.

Your payment due date

eBay will generate an invoice if you have activity on your seller account and/or a balance due of more than $1.00.

You'll need to pay your invoice balance in full each month to keep your account up to date. If you don't keep your account current, your account may be suspended for non-payment and you may be responsible for collection costs.

Your payment due date is based on your invoice date:

  • If your invoice date is on the 15th of the month, your payment is due by the 15th of the following month.

  • If your invoice date is on the last day of the month, your payment is due by the last day of the following month.
