How you pay eBay fees with Managed Payments

Prior to eBay managing your payments, your eBay fees including the final value fee, seller co-funding costs and other selling costs were invoiced each month. If you participated in coupon promotions, payment may not have been required for up to 60 days post the promotion end date.

With eBay now managing payments:

  • All of your eBay selling fees and expenses are collected from your earnings.  
  • If you participate in seller co-funded promotions, your co-funding amount will be collected from your earnings anytime between 30-60 days of the promotion ending
  • Your Store subscription fees are collected from funds available for payout either at the beginning or middle of each month. 
  • If your earnings are not sufficient to cover these fees, we’ll charge the payment method you have on file (debit or credit card, and/or linked bank account). Learn more about how eBay recoups outstanding amounts owed.
See the Payments Terms of Use for more information

How you get paid when eBay manages payments

eBay sends a message when your buyer has paid and it's time for you to ship your order. eBay makes the funds from your sale available within 2 business days after confirming the buyer’s payment. You may choose to receive payouts of available funds daily or weekly. 

Please note: eBay only sends payouts to your bank on business days (Monday through Friday, excluding public holidays). eBay collects fees and expenses related to your sales from your funds prior to payout. Examples of eBay selling fees include but are not limited to: insertion fees, Promoted Listings, listing upgrades, and Store subscription fees.  

You will find details of your payouts, including all related fees and expenses, in the Reports section of Seller Hub or the Seller Dashboard section of My eBay.  

  • If you choose to receive payouts daily, eBay sends payouts of available funds to your bank account within 2 business days after confirming your buyer’s payment. In the event of a public holiday, eBay will make the payout on the following business day.
  • If you choose to receive payouts weekly, eBay sends payouts of available funds to your bank on Tuesdays. If a Tuesday falls on a public holiday, eBay will make the payout on the following business day.

Once eBay sends payouts, your bank will generally take 1-3 additional business days to make the funds from these payouts available to you.

If you change your details your payouts will be on hold until we complete verification of your new business details.  

While we hope to complete verification of your new business details as soon as possible, there could be some delay.

I started entering my business details but I want to change it to another business OR I started to change my business details after registering for eBay to manage payments but I want to change it back

I’m an active seller but I want to change my business details. The only options available to change my business details are to Companies and Partnerships. Will this change?

If you are an active seller, you will have the ability to change your business details to an entity type other than a Company or Partnership shortly.

My payouts have stopped. What should I do?

If you’ve recently changed your business details, your payouts have stopped because we’re working to confirm your new business details. Please be patient during this time. Once we have confirmed your information, your payouts will resume.

If you’ve been receiving your payouts regularly and they have suddenly stopped and you have not changed your business details, please contact eBay Customer Service using the links at the top of this page.
