eBay Canada Reminds Sellers of May 1st Fee Changes

eBay Canada reminded sellers of changes to fees that go into effect next week, including certain higher commission fees and lower discounts for Top Rated Sellers. COO & Director of Product Management Russ Patterson published the following post on the eBay Canada Announcement Board on Monday:

In February, we announced changes we’re making to meet the demands of today’s marketplace and invest in your success. Here’s a reminder that the following pricing changes will go into effect on May 1, 2017:

  • Final value fees for Store subscriptions will increase in some selling categories.
  • The US Top Rated final value fee discount will change from 20% to 10% on qualifying listings.
  • Final value fees for Canadian sellers who do not meet eBay’s minimum performance standards in both the US and Global standards programs will increase by 4% on items sold.

These updates have already gone into effect:

  • In February, Canadian sellers who list on eBay.com were able to begin using the promoted listings feature to promote their listings on eBay.com.
  • On April 1, 2017, Canadian sellers who are US Top Rated became eligible to receive a US$30 credit each quarter to promote your listings on eBay.
  • On April 1, 2017, Canadian Anchor Store subscribers became eligible to receive a quarterly US$25 credit toward promoting their listings on eBay.com.
  • On April 1, 2017, the eBay-branded shipping supplies coupon for Anchor Store subscribers increased from C$105 to C$210 per quarter.

This summer, we’ll be introducing a Canadian version of promoted listings on eBay.ca – look for more details in future announcements. As always, thank you for selling on eBay.
