eBay is lowering fees, but only in certain subcategories in the Business and Industrial Goods category. It’s unclear exactly what prompted the fee adjustment, but competitive factors likely played a role. eBay stated in its announcement that it was “serious” about being the best place to buy industrial equipment.
If you are a seller in these categories, be aware that your current listings will incur the higher fees even after July 1st – the new fees apply only to listings created after that date.
We’re serious about being the best place to buy industrial equipment. And that’s good news for Business & Industrial (B&I) sellers: we’ve reduced final value fees and capping the maximum fee for the some within B&I.
- Heavy Equipment
- Imaging & Aesthetics Equipment
- Commercial Printing Presses
– For Store subscribers, the final value fee has been reduced from 4% to 1.5%. Cap will remain at $250.
– For non-Store users, FVF has been reduced from 4% to 2%, with a new cap of $300.
– Insertion fee will remain $20 for both Store and non-Store users.
Please note that these new fees are valid only for listings posted on or after July 1, 2018. Listings that were created before July 1 are not eligible, even if they sold after July 1. This is not a promotional offer; this is a category pricing change designed to help you compete within B&I.
If you have unlisted inventory in B&I, we encourage you to list now and take advantage of these lowered fees.
Thank you for selling on eBay.
