Basic Shop monthly subscription



Basic Shop free listing allowance



When you sell on eBay, your items are visible to millions of potential buyers around the world. It's easy, safe, and generally free to list on eBay. You get a monthly allowance of free listings, and you only pay fees when your item sells, for any optional upgrades you choose to add, and if you choose to promote your listings.

Are you a business seller? Fees are different for business sellers. Read our article on Fees for business sellers.

Final value fees

When your item sells, you pay 10.7% of the item's final sales price. We call this a final value fee. Different fees apply to listings created in the Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles category.

If your item doesn't sell, you usually don't pay a final value fee. However, if you offer or reference your contact information to another user or ask a buyer for their contact information in the context of buying or selling outside of eBay, we charge a final value fee for introducing you to the buyer. In this case, the final value fee is based on the higher of the fixed price, auction start price, Buy it now price, reserve price or the price identified between the buyer and seller.

See our fee credits article for information on the fee credits you'll receive when you issue a full refund to the buyer without eBay having to step in and help.

If for some reason the buyer doesn't pay, you need to either cancel the sale or report it as an unpaid item to receive a final value fee fee credit.

Your final value fees will be displayed on your monthly invoice.

Listing fees

Each month you can create up to 150 listings for free, or more if you have an eBay Shop. You'll only pay listing fees if you've reached your monthly allowance and want to list more. Every listing created after your free monthly allocation has been used up costs €0.35. Different fees apply to listings created in the Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles category. See the Fees for Basic eBay Shops section below for information on free listing allocations and listing fees when you subscribe to a Basic eBay Shop.

Listing fees are only charged once when the listing is originally created, unless you choose to manually relist your item. Auction-style listings that are automatically relisted using the auto-relist feature, and monthly renewals of Good 'Til Cancelled listings are not charged additional listing fees, and do not count towards your monthly allocation of free listings.

Selling limits apply and may prevent you from being able to use your entire allocation of free listings each month.

Fees for optional listing upgrades

Adding optional listing upgrades is a great way to help your listings stand out and attract more buyers. Certain features are free, like adding up to 12 photos for example, while others, like adding a subtitle, do require an additional fee.

We charge optional listing upgrade fees per listing regardless of whether your item sells, and only once when the listing is originally created, or if you choose to manually relist your item.
