For example, sellers with a Basic and above eBay Store who sell in the Home & Garden category will see an increase from 11.7% to 12.0%, a difference of 0.3%. Final value fees for sellers without a Store will increase 0.35% in most categories. For example, sellers who sell in the eBay Motors Parts & Accessories category without a Store will see an increase from 12.55% to 12.9%, a difference of 0.35%.

Fees vary across categories with eBay saying that they always strive to achieve lowest total fees across category competitors. Fees also vary for sellers with and without an eBay Store subscription.

Subtitle listing upgrade fee increase

From the 1st of March 2022, final value fees for Store sellers will increase 0.3% in most categories. For example, sellers with a Basic and above eBay Store who sell in the Home & Garden category will see an increase from 11.7% to 12.0%, a difference of 0.3%. Final value fees for sellers without a Store will increase 0.35% in most categories. For example, sellers who sell in the eBay Motors Parts & Accessories category without a Store will see an increase from 12.55% to 12.9%, a difference of 0.35%.

From the 1st of March 2022, the optional Subtitle listing upgrade fee will increase $0.50. The increase will apply to items with an auction start price or Buy it Now price up to $150.

  • For auction listings, the new fee will be $1.50. Previously, the fee was $1.00.
  • For fixed price listings, the new fee will be $2.00. Previously, the fee was $1.50.

Adding an optional Subtitle listing upgrade to your listing can increase buyer interest by providing more descriptive information about your item. We encourage you to evaluate your listings to determine if the Subtitle listing upgrade is right for you.

From the 1st of June 2022, the Promoted Listings Standard ad fee calculation will change to align more closely with how eBay calculate final value fees. Specifically, the ad fee will be calculated in all markets based on the total amount of the sale for each attributed sale, using the same basis eBay use to calculate final value fees (including applicable taxes, shipping and other applicable fees described here). Currently, in certain markets including the US, the Promoted Listings Standard ad rate applies only to the final price of the item.

  1. Here we go. As predicted. Ebay taking more off sellers to make up for the failure to achieve growth.

  2. Hi sellers. We are removing Paypal to use our own payment method. For most sellers there will be savings on fees. That lasted long 🙂
