Supplemental service fees

If you use supplemental services such as managed returns or other services offered by eBay or third parties, then charges associated with those services may also be treated as fees. Depending on the service, these charges may be included on seller invoices as a fee, which may be charged to your automatic payment method on file.

What you should know about your eBay fees

  • Stated eBay fees include 15% VAT for residents of the EU. Invoices sent to you will quote fees with VAT included. Find out why we use the Luxembourg rate of VAT.

  • If your seller account is suspended for any reason, any amounts owed will immediately become due and payable. eBay reserves the right to immediately charge any amounts you have not previously disputed to the billing method that you are using.

  • Fees pay for the right to sell on eBay. There are times when your listing may not appear when using a keyword or category search until several hours after you have created it. Therefore, eBay cannot guarantee exact listing durations. Learn more about listing durations.

  • Sellers do not purchase exclusive rights to web pages on eBay. We may, in our sole discretion, and without your consent or payment to you, place third-party advertisements on any web page within our site.

  • Insertion fees and optional feature fees are charged at the time of listing and are non-refundable.

  • Good 'Til Cancelled renews automatically every 30 days until the item sells or you end the listing. Insertion fees are charged every 30 day period.

  • eBay requires payment in full each month on accounts with balances of £1 or greater. eBay may suspend your account for non-payment of eBay fees. If you have not paid your outstanding eBay fees after our reminders and warnings, eBay reserves the right to refer your account to an outside collection agency for collection of the outstanding eBay fees. Please note that the collection agency will also charge you a proportionate and reasonable fee for the collection of the unpaid eBay fees, which will vary according to the amount owed and which will be payable in addition to the outstanding eBay fees.
