Payment methods

eBay offers these methods for you to pay your selling fees:

PayPal (monthly and one-time payments)

  • PayPal is a safe, convenient way to automatically pay your eBay fees.

  • When you sign up for automatic PayPal payments, your invoice amount will automatically be deducted from your PayPal account within 15-17 days after your receive your invoice.

  • You can make a one-time payment via PayPal at any time.

Credit card (monthly and one-time payments)

  • eBay will automatically charge your invoice amount directly to your credit card within 7-10 days after you receive your invoice.

  • Even if you have a different automated payment method on file, you can still make a one-time payment using a credit card.

Your payment due date

eBay will generate an invoice if you have activity on your seller account and/or a balance due of more than €1.00.

You'll need to pay your invoice balance in full each month to keep your account up to date. If you don't keep your account current, your account may be suspended for non-payment and you may be responsible for collection costs.

The payment due date is determined by the date eBay generates your invoice (either the 15th of the month or the last day of the month). For information on payment requirements, late fees, and payment schedules, see Your payment due date.

Trading limit

If you don't have automatic payments set up via PayPal or credit card, you can only accrue up to €25.00 in selling fees. We can, at our discretion, prevent you from listing more items when you exceed this limit. Your account will be reactivated when you pay the balance.
