Typically, there are several different fees, or payments, on eBay. These eBay commissions include insertion fees, final value fees, upgrade fees and PayPal fees.

Listing upgrade fees: Fees sellers pay to use added features offered by eBay to sellers. These include: subtitles for your listings, customized listings design, bold listing title, listing in two categories, and scheduled listings. Final value fees: You pay these fees once a transaction is completed, but do not have to pay if you did not make sales on your listing. The fee is calculated by Amazon, taking into account your sales price, shipping & handling fees; it is also reliant on which category your product is listed in.

Insertion fees: These are the fees that are associated with listing a product on the eBay marketplace. The charge depends on the category as well as the number of categories that you want to list your products under. The insertion fee is non-refundable. If you have an account, you get 50 free listings per month. Store owners get more depending on which store they have.

Final value fees: These are paid when you complete a transaction but does not have to be paid if you don’t make any sales with your listing. This fee is calculated as a percentage of your sales price as well as shipping and handling fees. It is also dependent on the category you listed your product under but for standard products it is 10%.

Listing upgrade fees: These are fees that you pay in order to make use of extra features that eBay offers its sellers. The features include listings in two categories, listing designer to customize the design of your listing, subtitle for your listing, bold title for the listing and scheduled listings. Additionally, there is a PayPal fee, but that is not paid directly to eBay.
