An Intriguing Question about eBay Managed Payments Fees
By: Ina Steiner
Will eBay still charge insertion fees under Managed Payments? That's the question I received from a reader who added, "I have not heard any eBay reps mention that, and nobody is asking."
It's a great question, and shows that sellers continue to deal with uncertainties around Managed Payments, especially when it comes to fees.
The news that eBay would begin intermediating payments isn't new - we wrote about it in the fall of 2017, and it became official in January 2018
But in the two-and-a-half years since, eBay has changed the fees several times, and as we pointed out in a blog post yesterday
, eBay has yet to publish the full rates on its website.
Sellers are growing increasingly concerned about what to expect from the new payment system - fees are just one area of concern. We foresee "high anxiety" in the weeks ahead unless sellers receive clearer information from eBay about what they can expect under the new system.
