What is the final value fee on eBay?
Besides eBay listing fee, eBay also charges a final value fee (eBay final selling fees). It is charged when an item is getting sold. The fee calculation is based on the percentage of the total amount the buyer pays. Do remember the calculation includes any shipping and handling charges, but not sales tax.
The final selling fees depend on where a certain item is listed. Generally, you will be charged 11% for sale, however, several categories or subcategories will be charged lower, for example, Baby-9% and DIY 5%.
Considering the cases of not getting paid, eBay offers to get final value fees credit.
eBay final selling fee credit includes the cases:
- There is a mutual agreement for canceling the transaction
- You report on the unpaid item as you haven’t been paid
- There is a returned or missing item
- You have been voluntarily refunded a buyer during a payment dispute
eBay final selling fee credit excludes the cases:
- You refund a buyer outside of eBay
- You refund a buyer partially
- The case was resolved in favor of your buyer
After receiving the credit, you will be able to check it in your seller account. You can use the credit for your future fees or you can request a refund if you have a credit balance and eBay will send you the money.
