Fees for business sellers (when eBay is not managing your payments)


The fees on this page apply if eBay is not managing your payments.

If eBay is managing your payments, you'll see the Available funds section in your payments summary. Please see Fees for business sellers for the fees that apply to you.

When you sell as a business on eBay, your items are visible to millions of potential buyers all over the world. We offer competitive pricing and access to professional selling tools to help you grow your business and enjoy a positive selling experience on eBay.

Fees are charged at a different rate if you're not registered as a business seller on eBay, or if you want to sell vehicles. To find out more, read Fees for private sellers (when eBay is not managing your payments) and Fees for selling vehicles.

As a business seller on eBay, you have access to several attractive Shop subscription packages. With a Shop subscription you'll receive discounts, access to selling tools, and many other benefits to help you manage and grow your business. See our eBay Shop subscription options and benefits article for more information on the different Shop packages and which one might be best for your business.

We charge three main types of fees when you sell on eBay - a final value fee when your item sells, a listing fee when you create your listing, and fees for optional listing upgrades to provide your inventory with higher visibility.

You'll find more details below about all the fees we charge when you sell as a business on eBay.

All fees listed on this page are exclusive of VAT.

Final value fees

When your item sells, you pay a final value fee. How much you pay varies by listing category and is calculated as a percentage of the final transaction amount, including shipping.

The final value fee for most categories is 8.7% except for the categories in the table below.

Category Category ID
Final value fee: 5%

Sound & Vision


Cameras & Photography


Computers/Tablets & Networking


Mobile Phones & Communication


Video Games & Consoles


Final value fee discount

eBay sellers who achieve Top Rated Seller status can benefit from a 10% discount on their final value fees.

Additional final value fees

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'll charge a final value fee for introducing you to the buyer. In this case, the final value fee is calculated as a percentage 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.

Listing fees

When you create a listing, we charge a listing fee. Listing fees are non-refundable, even if your item doesn't sell. If you have an eBay Shop subscription, you receive a monthly allocation of free listings, plus discounts on additional fixed price listings. See the eBay Shops fees section below for information on free listing allocations and listing fees for eBay Shop subscribers.

Listing fees are charged each month for Good 'Til Cancelled listings and every time you relist an item, if you have used all your monthly free allowances.
