eBay is reducing fees in certain categories for business sellers in the UK, effective July 11, 2019. eBay UK made the following announcement today:
Price reduction for Business Sellers in a selection of categories – June 2019
From 11 July, we’ll be making some changes to Final value fees and fee caps in Home, Furniture & DIY and Jewellery & Watches categories. We’re reducing Final value fees in the Home, Furniture & DIY categories and changing the fee cap in Jewellery & Watches for business sellers.
We’ll be introducing the below changes to Final value fees in Home, Furniture & DIY and Jewellery & Watches categories.
Home, Furniture & DIY
Reducing the Final value fee to 6% on the portion of the sale about £250 (including postage).*
Jewellery & Watches
The Final value fee cap of £50 for shop subscribers for Watches will now extend across the whole of the Jewellery category.
You don’t need to make any changes in how you sell in these categories. Any new, relisted or renewed listings from 11 July will benefit from this change and you will start to see changes in your invoice from mid-July.
Why these categories and not others? eBay answered that question in a FAQ: “We continually assess our fees to ensure that they are competitive and that our sellers are able to offer the inventory that our buyers are looking for. At this time we identified the need to reduce prices in these selected categories.”
