Store selling fees

For a monthly subscription, you can run your own eBay Store. When you have an eBay Store, you get more listings with zero insertion fees and pay lower final value fees, compared to selling without a Store. You also get access to additional tools to manage and promote your business. The fees and benefits vary depending on the type of Store subscription you choose.

The rest of the fee structure is the same as non-Store subscribers. We charge an insertion fee when you create a listing, and a final value fee when your item sells.

The amount we charge for Store subscribers depends on the following:

  • The item price
  • The format and category you choose for your listing
  • Any optional listing upgrades you add
  • Your Store subscription package
  • Your seller conduct and performance

Store subscription fees

When you open an eBay Store, you'll choose a Store package: Basic, Premium, or Anchor. Visit our Seller Center - opens in new window or tab to learn more about the benefits of opening an eBay Store.

When you first subscribe, you'll choose between automatic monthly or yearly renewals. For either option, we charge the subscription fee on a monthly basis.

Store type Store subscription fee per month
Monthly renewal Yearly renewal
Basic $24.95 $19.95
Premium $74.95 $59.95
Anchor $349.95 $299.95

We'll bill you for your Store every month until you cancel your subscription. To find out how fees are charged when you change your Store level or cancel your subscription/close your Store, please read our Stores Subscription Terms of Service - opens in new window or tab.

Insertion fees

All sellers get a monthly allocation of zero insertion fee listings. As a Store subscriber, you get more zero insertion fee listings per month than non-Store sellers. The number you get depends on the Store subscription package you choose. Keep in mind, selling limits apply and certain categories are excluded from the zero insertion fee listings offer.

Learn more about how zero insertion fee listings work, including the terms and exclusions for those listings.

After you've used your zero insertion fee allowance, insertion fees are:

  • Nonrefundable if your item doesn't sell
  • Charged per listing and per category. So if you list your item in two categories, you'll pay an insertion fee for the second category too
  • Charged for the original listing and each time your item is relisted
  • Charged per listing if you create duplicate auction-style listings for identical items. Read more about our duplicate listings policy
  • Credited back for auction-style listings that end in a sale for Basic, Premium and Anchor Store subscribers (exclusions apply)

Good 'Til Cancelled listings

Good 'Til Cancelled listings are fixed price listings that renew automatically once per calendar month. We charge an insertion fee and applicable optional listing upgrade fees when you list your item for the first time, and each time it renews. These listings count toward your monthly zero insertion fee listings. Fee amounts are based on the terms in effect when the listing goes live and when it renews.

Final value fees

We charge one final value fee when your item sells, and you don't have to worry about third-party payment processing fees. This fee is calculated as a percentage of the total amount of the sale, plus $0.30 per order.

The total amount of the sale includes the item price, any handling charges, the shipping service the buyer selects, sales tax, and any other applicable fees. If you offer 1-day or international shipping as well as a cheaper or free option (like domestic shipping), the total amount of the sale is calculated based on the cheapest domestic option you offer. If you only offer 1-day or international shipping but no cheaper option like domestic shipping, the total amount of the sale is calculated based on the service the buyer chooses.

If you're in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, or Vietnam and your item isn't located in the US, the total amount of the sale is always calculated based on the shipping option your buyer chooses.

An order is any number of items purchased by the same buyer at checkout with the same shipping method.

If you need to refund the buyer or cancel the sale, you may be eligible for a credit of the variable percentage portion of the final value fee provided that you refund the buyer in full in resolution of a return or cancellation request. The $0.30 per order fee will not be credited.

Please note that we charge different fees for non-Store sellers and different fees for selling vehicles in our Motors category.

Please keep in mind that not all optional listing upgrades are available with every listing tool and not all optional listing upgrades may be displayed across all our sites, services, applications, and tools.

Additional final value fees

You may be charged final value fees if you violate our policy of buying or selling outside of eBay, or we may apply additional final value fees if you are not meeting our performance expectations.

Buying or selling outside of eBay

If you offer or reference your contact information or ask a buyer for their contact information in the context of buying or selling outside of eBay, you'll be charged a final value fee based on the total amount of the sale even if your item doesn't sell. In this situation, the total amount of the sale is determined as follows:

  • Auction-style listing format: The total amount of the sale is the auction start price, the Buy It Now price (if applicable), the reserve price (if applicable), or the price identified between the buyer and seller, whichever is highest.
  • Fixed price listing format: The total amount of the sale is the fixed price or the price identified between the buyer and seller, whichever is higher.

Sellers not meeting performance expectations

Additional final value fees may apply on sales in the following circumstances:

  • If your account doesn't meet our minimum seller performance standards for our Global program in the evaluation on the 20th of the month, you'll be charged an additional 5% on the final value fees applicable to sales in the following calendar month. Go to your Seller Dashboard - opens in new window or tab to check your current seller level. This fee does not apply to Above Standard and eBay Top-rated Sellers. For more information, please visit our page on Seller levels and Performance Standards.
  • If your rate of 'Item not as described' return requests is evaluated in your service metrics as Very High in the evaluation on the 20th of the month in one or more categories, you will be charged an additional 5% on the final value fees for sales in those categories in the following calendar month. You can view your personalized service metrics on your Service Metrics dashboard - opens in new window or tab in Seller Hub.

Any additional final value fees will be calculated as a percentage of the total amount of the sale. We'll indicate which listings are subject to additional fees on your Account Summary - opens in new window or tab.

Note: If your account isn't meeting our minimum seller performance standards and you're rated Very High in your rate of 'Item not as described' return requests at the time of the sale, you'll only be charged the additional final value fee for not meeting our minimum seller performance standards.

Dispute fee

If you are found responsible for a disputed amount as per eBay policies (e.g., chargeback), we charge a $20.00 dispute fee, excluding sales tax, for each dispute.

International fee

If your registered address is in Canada, we charge an international fee of 0.4% to the US and 1% to all other countries if either:

  • The delivery address for the item (entered by the buyer during checkout) is outside Canada, or
  • The buyer's registered address is outside Canada (regardless of the delivery address for the item)

This fee is automatically deducted and is calculated based on the total amount of the sale.

If your registered address is not in Canada, please refer to the fee page for your country or region of residence for your International fee information.

Seller currency conversion charge

When you register for managed payments, you may select USD or CAD as your payout currency. When you create listings or sell items on an eBay site with a listing currency different to your payout currency (including listings on eBay.ca if you have selected USD as your payout currency), eBay may convert your funds to a different currency in order to collect amounts owed by you to eBay, or to payout funds due to you.

For example, if your registered address is in Canada and you create a listing on eBay.de for which fees are due (such as insertion and/or optional listing upgrade fees), eBay will convert your funds from CAD to EUR using the transaction exchange rate applicable at the time of listing, in order to collect these fees. When the item sells on eBay.de, eBay will calculate your payout amount by converting the sales proceeds from EUR to CAD using the transaction exchange rate applicable at the time of the sale.

If eBay converts your funds, the conversion will be completed at the transaction exchange rate we set for the relevant currency exchange. eBay's transaction exchange rate is composed of a base exchange rate plus a conversion charge. The conversion charge is a fixed percentage applied to the base exchange rate and retained by eBay. The base exchange rate reflects rates within the wholesale currency markets applicable to the currency pairing on the day of the conversion, or the prior business day. If exchange rates are set by law or regulation, the base exchange rate reflects the government reference rates.

If your registered address is in Canada, the seller currency conversion charge applied and retained by eBay is 3%. If your registered address is not in Canada, please refer to the fee page for your country or region of residence for your seller currency conversion charge information.

Examples of fee calculations

Auction-style listing example

You're a Basic Store subscriber and you're selling a purse using a 10-day duration. You select a starting price of $199 with a Buy It Now price of $400, and you offer free shipping. You haven't yet used your allocation of zero insertion fee listings this month, and you are meeting our performance expectations.

The item sells immediately to a buyer in Ontario for the Buy It Now price of $400. Since you aren't charging the buyer for shipping or any other costs, $452 is the total amount of the sale (including 13% HST).

The final value fee is $51.98, or 11.5% of $452, plus $0.30.

Your total fees for this item:

Insertion fee

$0.00

Buy It Now fee

$0.00

Final value fee

$52.28

Total fees

$52.28

You make $347.72, or approximately 87% of the sale price, not including shipping costs.

 

Fixed price listing example

You're a Basic Store subscriber and you haven't yet used your monthly allocation of zero insertion fee listings. You list a ski jacket for $65 with a free shipping option, and you add a subtitle to help the listing stand out. You're meeting our performance expectations.

The jacket sells quickly to a buyer in Ontario who selects the free shipping option. The total amount of the sale is $73.45 (including 13% HST).

The final value fee is $8.44, or 11.5% of $73.45, plus $0.30.

Your total fees for this item:

Insertion fee

$0.00

Subtitle fee

$1.50

Final value fee

$8.74

Total fees

$10.24

You make $54.76, or approximately 84% of the sale price.

Other terms and conditions

We always want to make sure we're very clear about the fees we charge, so here are some details you should be aware of:

  • If you use supplemental services, such as buying and printing shipping labels on eBay, or if you participate in any of our advertising programs, additional terms may apply and you'll pay any costs or fees associated with those services. Details of the costs or fees will be on your monthly financial statement and we'll charge the payment method you've set up on your seller account
  • All fees are in Canadian dollars
  • Sellers may be invoiced for final value fees, international fees, and seller currency conversion charges under certain circumstances
  • Fees may apply if you end your auction-style listing early
  • The fees on this page apply to listings on eBay.ca. If you list an item on another eBay site (eBay.com for example), the fees for that site will apply
  • Seller fees don't purchase exclusive rights to web pages on eBay. We may, in our sole discretion and without consent from or payment to sellers, display third-party advertisements (including links and references thereto) and listings from other sellers on any eBay page
  • Depending on the tax legislation of your country of residency, local Value Added Tax (VAT), Goods and Services Tax (GST) or similar consumption tax might apply in addition to your eBay fees
