eBay India make fee changes

No primary category set

eBay India have . They broadly follow the trend of other sites in weighting fees more towards sold items and reducing upfront costs for listing. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Insertion fees are Rs.1 per item, regardless of price (except in media categories which continue to be free to list). Insertion fees are capped at Rs.1500 per seller per month, so if you list more than 1500 items, that’s free.
  • International listing fees have been cut from Rs.15 to Rs.5 for items under Rs.2000, and from Rs.30 to Rs.10 for items above that.
  • Basic shop subscription fee will increase from Rs.199 to Rs.249 per month
  • Seller Manager increases in price from Rs.149 to Rs.199 per month, but Seller Manager Pro is reduced from Rs.500 to Rs.399.
  • Home page featured upgrade will be Rs.150 regardless of the number of items listed.
  • FVFs change: the current sliding scale according to price will be replaced with a flat fee dependent on category: 1% for technology, 6% for media, 5% for everything else

The new fee structure should encourage sellers to list more on the site, and in particular to offer their listings internationally now. If you’re a seller on eBay.in, how will this change your listing habits?

For those outside India wondering, Rs.100 is approximately £1.18.

Seller Non-Performance Changes

; the previous 30 days of data will now be taken into account instead of 90 days, and DSRs will be taken into account as well as INR and SNAD complaints. Like other sites around the world, India cites a “minimum number of bad transactions” without stating what that minimum might be: lets hope this isn’t the beginning of a fresh round of dolphins.

  1. sounds very very cheap to list in comparison to the UK site which is still too expensive

  2. Well … A fresh round of DOLPHINS allready had started happening
    and the scene amongst sellers was rather very very gloomy since last fortnight.

    But must say this fresh announcement has brought a lot of Cheer amongst the selling community here .

    To be honest to list on ebay india was in fact very very cheap always even before this reduction.
    I do not see much changes in listing habits except that multiple listings will increase.
    Ppeople with good inventory will benefit tremendously and above that if some body sells internationally , its a further bonus.

    However I see My Self increasing listing by 200 percent as i anyways have a good inventory considering my cataegory ,
    And also the fact that i sell mostly internationally
