Zero insertion fee listings

You'll receive an allocation of zero insertion fee listings every month. These enable you to list items for sale in many categories with no insertion fees, though other fees may still apply. You’ll only pay insertion fees after using up these listings.

How it works

You won't be charged an insertion fee if you still have an allotment of zero insertion fee listings available in a given month. However, you will still need to pay a final value fee when your item sells. You'll also be charged fees for optional listing upgrades and supplemental services if you choose to use them, including:
