The cost of doing business on eBay comes in the form of various expenses you have to pay per sale. These expenses tend to be the same for all of their international marketplaces. Here is a brief look at the specific expenses you should expect to incur:

  • Shipping costs
  • Marketplace fees (referral fees, account plans)
  • PayPal fees
  • Taxes

There are additional fees that you can pay to upgrade your listings as well. These include features like:

  • Reserve price (4% of the reserve price up to £150 per item)
  • Buy it now price (50p)
  • Subtitles (£2.00)
  • Gallery plus (£2.50 / free in select categories)
  • Listing in two categories (35p)
  • Scheduler (free for 20 listings per month, 6p per listing beyond that)
  • International site visibility (30p for fixed price listings, with other pricing structures available)

As a seller, you need to learn how to calculate these fees quickly. Algopix comes with an eBay fee calculator, as well as a variety of additional features that will help you with your product sourcing efforts.
