Fees for Real Estate

The Fees schedule includes this page and the below links for standard category listings, Motors vehicles, select Business & Industrial categories, and Stores subscribers.

In addition to the fees on this page, other fees may apply, including:

Basic fees

The basic cost of selling an item is the insertion fee plus the notice fee, plus fees for any optional features and services you may use:

  • When you list an item on eBay, you're charged an insertion fee.

  • If the item sells, you're also charged a notice fee as noted below.

  • You may also be charged fees for any optional features or services you may use.

  • PayPal fees may also apply.

Real Estate listings can be auction-style, fixed price, or an Ads format. No matter which selling format you choose, Real Estate has a variety of rules to follow. See our Real Estate policies.

Other terms

  • Insertion fees and advanced listing upgrade fees apply to each listing you create, are charged at the time of listing, and are nonrefundable. Fee amounts are based on the terms in effect when the listing goes live and when it renews. If you select more than one category for your listing, insertion and advanced listing upgrade fees apply for each category.

  • Not all listing upgrades are available with every listing tool and not all advanced listing upgrades, when purchased, may be displayable across all our sites, services, applications, and tools.

  • We require payment in full each month on accounts with an amount due of $1 or more. If you haven't paid the amount due by the payment due date each month, late fees may apply. Learn more about payment requirements, due dates, and late fees.

  • We may limit the exposure of duplicate auction-style listings to ensure a positive buyer experience. If you list duplicate, identical auction-style listings, you'll be charged the full insertion fee for each listing even if a listing doesn't appear on eBay for the full duration of the listing. See the duplicate listings policy for more information.

  • 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 web 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.

  • When you submit your listing, it might not appear immediately in a keyword or category search. This can take up to 24 hours. Therefore, we can't guarantee exact listing durations.
