For many years now, sellers of books, music, movies and video games have been subject to maximum permitted shipping costs when listing on eBay.com.
Based on US shipping rates, these limits have been historically challenging for Canadian sellers, who typically face much higher shipping costs on media items.
To make it easier for Canadians and other non-US sellers to list in these eBay.com categories, the maximum allowable shipping costs in the Books, Music, Movies and Video Games categories have been increased significantly.
Books, Music, Movies and Video Games are the only eBay.com categories that are subject to shipping cost limits. There are no shipping cost limits in place on eBay.ca.
With these changes in mind, we encourage all sellers to remain competitive with their shipping costs. Offering buyers a low shipping cost – or even free shipping – is a great strategy for attracting more potential buyers and generating more sales.
