About insertion fees
An insertion fee is a listing fee, and 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 advertisement, you need to pay this basic listing fee, even if your item is not sold (If your item sells, a final value fee is charged to your seller's account)
Insertion fees are not refundable.

Your first 100 single-quantity auction-style listings in a calendar month won’t be charged an insertion fee if:
The item is listed in an eligible category
A starting price of up to €1.49
You are not a PowerSeller on any eBay site
If your listing is eligible for a €0.00 insertion fee, your insertion fee will appear as 'Free' in the listing form. If you're relisting an item, the relist is eligible for €0.00 insertion fees under the same guidelines as a new listing. All listings (including relisted and cancelled listings) count toward the 100 listings limit.
Only auction-style listings without reserve are eligible. All other fees, including listing upgrade fees (such as bold or listing in two categories) and final value fees, still apply. If you list items in a second category, this will be charged the standard fees for listing in a second category.
