eBay charges different fees in different countries however they are all relatively similar. For the examples below I have used the fees from eBay USA and PayPal USA.
eBay charges a listing fee (also called an insertion fee) and a FVF (final value fee).
Often eBay has promotions where you can list items for free but you still have to pay the FVF (final value fee).
Currently eBay is allowing you to do 50 listings per month with no insertion fees.
If you do more than 50 listings in a month, you will be charged the normal insertion fees of $0.05 cents for fixed price Books, DVDs & Movies, Music, and Video Games or $0.30 cents for auction-style and fixed price listings in all other categories.
Readers should note eBay, like most companies charge higher fees to smaller sellers and reward larger sellers with lower fees. Larger sellers do not pay listing fees if they have an eBay store and can also pay reduced PayPal fees.
FVF (Final Value Fees)
The FVF (Final Value Fee) is 10% of the price and the item can sell for up to a maximum amount of $250. i.e. if your item sells for $100, the FVF you pay eBay is $10
Other eBay fees:
There are other optional services you can use which have additional fees i.e
Gallery Plus – which shows a larger picture in the eBay search results:
