A final value fee will be charged by eBay as a percentage of the total amount of a sale when your product is purchased by a customer. This total amount of a sale is the purchase price of the product for the customer, including any shipping and handling charges (sales tax is not included). In case the buyer does not deliver the payment for a product, eBay Sellers are required to cancel the sale or report it as an unpaid item in order to be eligible for reimbursement of the final value fee. The amount of the final value fee on eBay is dependent on the product category of an item as outlined below:
  • Majority of product categories on eBay: final value fee of 10% (maximum $750)
  • Books, DVDs, Movies, Music (except ‘Records’): final value fee of 12% (maximum of $750)
  • Business & Industrial categories: final value fee of 2% (maximum $300)
  • Musical Instruments & Gear: final value fee of 3,5% (maximum $350)
It’s Important to note that Sellers may be charged an additional final value fee in case of an eBay policy violation or when they're not meeting eBay’s performance expectations. For further clarification, make sure to read eBay’s detailed section on Selling Fees.
