Changes to fees for Business Sellers

Changes to fees for Business Sellers

*** In March, we announced that we’d introduce a fee for renewing a listing that hasn’t sold within 18 months. This was to improve the shopping experience by removing clutter on the site.   

We’ve listened to your feedback and have decided not to go ahead with this. However, we still encourage you to avoid outdated listings. We’ll keep working towards finding new ways to support you and help your listings succeed. ***

Changes to business seller fees coming on 2 April 2015:

  • Final value fees are changing in all categories. In some categories fees will increase slightly, in others they will decrease.
  • The final value fee discount for sellers who provide eBay Premium Service will go down from 15% to 10%. These sellers will continue to enjoy their increased visibility and Premium Service badge.

Coming from summer 2015, the following changes encourage the removal of outdated listings which improves the shopping experience:

  • Anchor Shop subscriptions will include 50,000 fixed price listings per month instead of unlimited listings.
