What does it cost to sell on eBay?

The basic cost of selling an item includes:

  • Insertion fee – this is charged when you create a listing. eBay gives you a number of free insertions per month.

  • Final value fee – this is only charged if your item sells, or if we determine that you may have completed a sale outside of eBay.

These fees depend on the starting price, sale price, postage and handling charges, listing format and category, and whether you have an eBay Store. To help estimate your fees for listing a specific item, use our fee calculator.

There are also fees for some optional features that help to promote your item (most optional features are free), as well as for subscriptions to eBay selling tools.
