Basic fees

To open an eBay Shop, you pay a monthly subscription fee. Each item you list in your eBay Shop incurs an insertion fee and, if it sells, a final value fee.

As a Shops subscriber, you receive reduced rates on insertion fees for Buy it now listings. The level of fee discount you receive depends on which Shop level you subscribe to. The fees shown here apply only to Shops opened on eBay.ie.

Learn more about the requirements to open a Shop and the benefits you receive with each Shop subscription level.

What you should know about your eBay fees

  • In the event your seller account is suspended for any reason, any amounts due on your seller account will immediately become due and payable. eBay reserves the right to immediately charge any amounts you have not previously disputed to the billing method that you are using.

  • Fees pay for the right to sell on eBay. Sellers do not purchase exclusive rights to web pages on eBay. We may, in our sole discretion, and without your consent or payment to you, place third-party advertisements on any web page within our site.

  • Insertion fees and optional feature fees are charged at the time of listing and are non-refundable.

  • Good 'Til Cancelled renews automatically every 30 days unless all of the items sell, you end the listing, or the listing breaches an eBay policy. Insertion fees are charged every 30 day period.

  • You can see your recent account activity by viewing your Account Activity page.

  • eBay requires payment in full each month on accounts with balances of €1.00 or greater. eBay may suspend your account for non-payment of eBay fees. If you have not paid your outstanding eBay fees after our reminders and warnings, eBay reserves the right to refer your account to an outside collection agency for collection of the outstanding eBay fees. Please note that the collection agency will also charge you a proportionate and reasonable fee for the collection of the unpaid eBay fees, which will vary according to the amount owed and which will be payable in addition to the outstanding eBay fees.
