How fees and selling costs are charged

As a seller, your fees and selling costs are automatically deducted from your sales proceeds, and the rest of your funds are paid directly into your chequing account.

Because fees and selling costs are deducted from the proceeds of your sales, your payout amount may be different than the amount your buyer paid. Payouts are sent to your chequing account daily or weekly, depending on your selected preference.

Types of fees and selling costs

Fees and selling costs may include, but are not limited to:

  • eBay fees, including insertion fees, optional listing upgrade fees, final value fees, international fees, ad fees, and other fees
  • Shipping labels
  • Store subscriptions
  • eBay Money Back Guarantee refunds
  • Payment dispute refunds
