eBay Selling Fees

All sellers can create 40 listings per month, free of charge. Most eBay business sellers choose to subscribe to a Store, with benefits like inclusive listings and discounted fees. 

Fees to sell a vehicle in our Motors category are a bit different, and listed below our standard fees on this page. Vehicle parts and accessories are subject to normal selling fees.

  • If  we evaluate your rate of ‘Item Not as Described’ returns in your service metrics as ‘Very High,’ we’ll increase your fees by 5% for sales in those categories.  
    • View your service metrics from the Performance tab in the Seller Hub.
