Important news for sellers: The spring seller updates, originally announced on January 26, are now live:
New eBay fee options in effect today:
New Store subscription rates: Starting today, sellers with an eBay Store subscription are getting the new fees associated with their subscription:
- Fixed Price Insertion Fees as low as 3¢ with full search exposure
- New low rates for Auction-style listings
- Free pictures
If you list 50 items or more per month, the new Store subscription packages most likely give you the lowest overall fees.
New standard fees: Starting today, all other sellers are getting the new standard fees:
- No Insertion Fees for Auction-style listings with a start price under $1 (up to 100 listings per month)—pay only if your item sells
- New low Insertion Fees with start prices of $1 or more
- One easy 9% Auction-style Final Value Fee.
- 50¢ Fixed Price Insertion Fees, with Fixed Price Final Value fees similar to what they have been until today.
Standard fees are ideal if you sell occasionally.
Get a complete overview of the new standard fees and new Store subscription fees in effect today. If you have any questions, see the handy Fee Illustrator to determine the best fee option based on the way you sell.
Store Inventory Format listings now regular Fixed Price listings with full search exposure
Starting today there’s just one Fixed Price selling format on eBay with all listings getting full exposure in eBay search results. As of today, all of your Store Inventory listings are now regular Fixed Price listings with their original duration and are being charged the new Fixed Price Insertion Fees associated with your current Store subscription (or the standard 50¢ Insertion Fee if you no longer have a Store subscription).
REMINDER: New seller requirements in effect in mid-April
Starting in mid-April, the changes to the PowerSeller requirements and discount schedule and changes to the minimum performance requirement for all eBay sellers (originally announced in July, 2009) will take effect.
