How much does it cost to sell on eBay UK?

It’s funny to say this really, not least because eBay UK will be 15 years old in July, but only now has a really clear and really useful page been published by eBay on what it costs to sell on the site.

Find it here. It ably and clearly lays out the prices in a most cogent and easily absorbable manner.

It follows the most recent change in the fees which gives all private sellers 20 free listings a month.

I guess one reason why this has been so long coming is that it’s taken a long while, and a lot of good sense over the past 6 or 7 years, to greatly simplify the fee structure.

Whether it was FVF percentages based on sale price, category specific fee rates, the multitude of listing enhancements and the like or all manner of other complications…. it used to be near on impossible to answer the question above off the top of your head: “how much does it cost to sell on eBay?”

One thing this new page also does, with reference to business sellers, is provide very clear guidance on what level of Shops subscription you should have based on your monthly listings.

So this is a happy day. At last one single landing page that gives you the answers. I’ve already bookmarked it.
