From 16 May, we're updating our category structure to make the eBay shopping experience more user-friendly.
These changes will make sure that:
Find out if your listings are in the affected categories.
Please note: The changes to specific category structures may result in a pricing fee change.
Including item specifics in your listings allows buyers to view easy-to-read details about your items. This not only helps buyers find your items but can also result in an increase in bids and sales. While you can create your own, choosing eBay-recommend item specifics helps with maximising visibility to buyers.
Generally speaking, when your item(s) is moved to a new category with different final value fees, it will adopt the final value fees of that new category and any changes in final value fee will apply when the item(s) sell. Variable category-based fee percentages currently only apply to eBay sellers with a store subscription. Sellers without a store subscription only pay a single variable percentage fee for most categories.
This does not apply to your final value fees prior to eBay managing your payments. For sellers who are not registered for eBay to manage their payments, please reach out to Customer Help if you have questions on the calculation of your final value fees.
