We charge two main types of selling fees: an insertion fee when you create a listing, and a final value fee when your item is sold. This article sets out our standard fees for selling on eBay.com.au without an eBay Store.

eBay Stores Selling Fees

 

Fees for eBay managed payments

Fees when you list your item

We give you 40 free auction-style or fixed price listings each month. Once you've used up your free listings, or if an item doesn't qualify for a free listing, we'll charge a non-refundable insertion fee. If you have a Store, you'll receive inclusive listings with your subscription. If you list in 2 categories, you’ll pay the associated insertion fee for the second category.

Listing Format Starting Price or Category Insertion Fee (incl. GST)
Auction or fixed-price format (first 40 listings free) Up to $100 $1.65
Over $100 $3.85

Fees for optional listing upgrades

You may choose optional upgrades to help your listings stand out. You’ll pay a fee for these, regardless of whether your item sells.

Fees when you sell your item

We charge a final value fee whenever you sell an item on eBay. The fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount paid by the buyer (including postage and handling).

Auction or fixed price in most categories 10.9% of the total amount of the sale, to a maximum charge of $440 per item*
Services category (all formats) $44.00

Fees for Classified Ad listings

In a couple of categories, you can list using our Classified Ad format. In this format, we'll charge an insertion fee when you create your listing. Final value fees apply to Classified Ad listings in the Services category.

Category Insertion Fee (incl. GST) Final value fee (incl. GST)
Services $21.99 $44.00
Real Estate $54.95 n/a

Different fees apply to Classified Ad listings in Motors vehicle categories.

Fees for selling a vehicle on eBay Motors

The fees for listing and selling a vehicle are different to those in other categories, but the overall structure is the same. We charge an insertion fee when you create a Motors listing, and a final value fee when your vehicle sells.

Standard selling fees apply when you sell vehicle parts and accessories.
