About Insertion Fees

  • An Insertion Fee is a listing fee. It is the price eBay charges for listing your item for sale.

  • This fee is charged to your seller's account at the time of listing.

  • As with a newspaper ad, you need to pay this basic listing fee, even if your item is not sold.

  • Insertion Fees are not refundable.

Factors that affect Insertion Fees

  1. Type of listing. Examples include the following:

    • Single Items - Insertion Fee is based on the starting price of the item.

    • Multiple Item Listings (for fixed price listings) - Insertion Fee is the starting or fixed item price multiplied by the quantity of items you offer.

    • eBay Stores have their own Insertion Fees

  2. Optional listing features. Examples include the following:

    • Buy It Now

    • Scheduled Listings

    • Format enhancements (Including Bold, Item Subtitle, Highlight)
