eBay Seller Fees

Insertion fee

The insertion fee is the same as a listing fee. All sellers get up to 200 zero-fee listings every month. Once those are used up, the fees cannot be refunded even if the item doesn't sell. Sellers are charged one insertion fee per listing, per category. 

Final value fee

If the item sells, eBay charges sellers a final value fee. The value of the fee, charged per item, depends on the total sale amount. Although tax is not included, the total sale amount includes shipping and any other additional charges added to the item's price.

Advanced listing upgrade fees

eBay charges sellers fees if they add advanced listing upgrades. These are add-ons to the listing that aren't covered in the basic listing or insertion fee. Not all listing upgrades are available with every listing tool.

Supplemental service fees

eBay also charges sellers supplemental service fees. These range from shipping labels originated from the eBay site or refund reimbursements to eBay.
