Reminder - eBay's New Fees Take Effect Today
By: Ina Steiner
In March, eBay announced new fees that take effect today, July 6. The company is lowering its commission fee rate while applying it to the total amount of the sale including shipping.
According to eBay:
- "Sellers subscribed to a Store: Final Value Fee rates reduced and applied to the total amount of the sale (including shipping) starting July 6. Get the same low Insertion Fees - as low as 3 cents."
- "Sellers not subscribed to a Store: FREE to list Auction-style up to 50 items a month - any start price - with FREE Buy It Now option starting April 19. Auction-style Final Value Fees apply to the total amount of the sale (including shipping). Starting July 6, Fixed Price Final Value Fee rates reduced and applied to the total amount of sale (including shipping)."
You can find more information and fee charts on this page.
eBay said it was making the changes to encourage and reward low-cost shipping. Have you made any changes to your selling behavior as a result of the new fee structure? Let us know how this is effecting you.
