When you create listings, eBay may charge fees. They’re called Insertion Fees.
The number varies depending on which international eBay website you post your listings, your subscription level and whether you are a business seller.
E.g. you are registered on ebay.com, you receive 200 zero insertion fee listings per month. This means you won't be charged insertion fees for these listings. You'll only pay insertion fees after you've used up those listings.
Example: you've listed 201 items on ebay.com during a month. You will be charged insertion fees for one listing.
The number of zero insertion fee listings increases depending on the level of eBay store.
Zero Insertion Fee Allowance
- Find your subscription site and the account type in the title of one of the tables below
- Then find your subscription level in its header (No store, Basic, Featured etc)
- ...And see how many free listings you have on each site.
Amount of Insertion Fee
After you've used your Zero Insertion Fee allowance, insertion fees are:
- Non-refundable 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 you choose to relist your item
- Charged per listing if you create Duplicate Auction-style Listings for identical items
- Charged only once per listing for listings with multiple items
Insertion Fees vary depending on the starting price of the item, the item category you choose to list in, the international eBay website you list your items on and whether you are a business seller.
