Many of the changes on eBay.com in the US Spring Seller Release are the same as that for the UK. However there are two eBay Fee Changes in the US that you need to be aware of if you list on eBay’s American site.
eBay Fee Changes in the US
Final value fee cap increase for US Basic and Premium Stores
Starting on the 1st of June 2019, eBay will increase the final value fee cap for Basic and Premium eBay Stores from $250 to $350. The final value fee cap for Anchor and Enterprise Stores will not change. Some exclusions may apply.
Final value fee increase for US sellers not meeting performance expectations
Starting on the 20th of June 2019, eBay will increase the additional final value fees charged to sellers who have very high rates of “item not as described” returns and sellers who are not meeting minimum performance standards from 4% to 5%.
It’s important to know that this fee is uncapped and additional to the normal final value fees that you pay.
