How do I calculate my eBay fees?
Our eBay calculator will do that for you of course, but it's good to check these things for yourself (and you should).
Full eBay pricing is shown on the eBay pages.
To calculate your eBay listing costs you first need to figure out how many listings you have above your "free" allowance. Depending on the Shop subscription your fee per listing will be anything from 30p to nil. Simply multiply the two numbers together.
If you have opted for additional features such as a subtitle then you will have to add that on top for each listing that uses it. The Image Gallery is free in many categories, so although it is £2.50 it will be free if you are listing in a category such as Home.
Should I use the optional extras on eBay items?
Each optional extra has it's own benefits, but they can add a fair bit to the cost of an item and could eat into your profits significantly.
If you use our eBay calculator on this page you'll be able to see just how much those extras will cost across your listings.
The Image Gallery is free in many categories, but if the category that you are in does not include it for free, then that feature is only appropriate when you can guarantee a good margin.
Internation Visibility is useful if you want to sell on eBay USA and Canada. But if you already have a local eBay store in those countries already it is not required.
