As announced in the last Seller Release, from today eBay UK Fee Changes start to come into effect. The fees to be aware of that change today are:
- Final value fees in selected categories, mainly in Home & Garden and Electronics
- Fees for sellers whose performance level is Below Standard
- Additional free optional listing upgrades
In many categories, where there have been fee tranches giving lower final value fees for higher ASP items, these have been removed. Conversely, in other categories lower fee tranches have been introduced for higher ASP items where they previously weren’t offered.
Categories impacted include some sub categories belonging to the following parent categories: Baby; Clothes, Shoes & Accessories; Computers, Tablets & Networking; Cameras & Photography; Garden & Patio; Health & Beauty; Sound & Vision; Mobile Phones & Communication; Jewellery & Watches; Home, Furniture & DIY; Holidays & Travel; and Vehicle Parts & Accessories.
Check out the full final value based eBay UK Fee Changes by category here.
Fines for Below Standard sellers
From the today, eBay will increase additional final value fees from 4% to 6% for Below Standard sellers – those eBay judge to be failing to deliver an acceptable service level. The additional fee will continue to apply to the total amount of the sale, and does not apply to Above Standard and eBay Top Rated Sellers.
Free optional listing upgrades
From the 2nd of March 2023, the Buy it Now option for auction-style listings (currently 50p) and Scheduler listing (currently 10p) upgrades will become free for all sellers.
eBay UK Fee Changes for eBay Shops (April 1st)
From the 1st of April 2023, eBay will increase eBay Shop fees, saying they are “due to the recent investments and improvements we’ve made in Shopfronts“. The increase for a Basic Shop is only a couple of quid, but higher tiers face steeper price increases. Featured and Anchor Shop subscribers will also lose the monthly listing upgrade credit (£10 or £20 respectively).
As an added benefit, eBay will double the free monthly allowance of 7-day auction-style listings. For example, if you currently have a Basic shop package, you’ll be able to list up to 100 7-day auction style listings
