As of May 1—to encourage sellers to use the most effective listing formats and durations—updates to eBay fees and features went into effect. Included in these updates are unlimited insertion fee credits when auction-style listings end in a sale†, and adjustments to monthly allotments and insertion fees.

How does it work?

Now, any insertion fees applied to auction-style listings—after your monthly allotment of free listings*—will be credited back when the item sells. For greater selling success, choose auction-style listings when:

  • You’re unsure of the value of your item and want buyers to determine its value

  • You have unique and hard-to-find items with intense buyer demand or you have items whose market value may fluctuate

And choose fixed price when:

  • You have multiple items that you can group into one listing

  • You know the value of your item or know the exact price you need to get for it

  • You want your items to be available to buyers for more than 10 days

Top tip: Add Best Offer to your fixed price listings when you want to give buyers the chance to negotiate the price with you.

For a summary of fee and feature updates, review the latest everyday rate plan. Also, watch a quick video that offers listing tips and strategies for greater selling success.

And—as always—thank you for selling on eBay!
