eBay & PayPal Fees Structure

On eBay, the fees you pay depend on whether you’re a business or a personal seller. Business sellers have different prices for their items based on what category they’re listed in, regardless of their shop type.

Moreover, eBay offers a Top Rated Seller feature, which provides a 10% reduction on the final value fee. To know the eligibility criteria, check out eBay’s performance standards.

For sellers registered with Managed Payments, the Top Rated Seller discount will only apply to the variable final value fee, excluding the £0.30 transaction fee. There is a maximum limit of £250 on the final value fee per sold item.

A 20% VAT duty is levied on business sellers. VAT-registered users can check the item cost using the Reverse Vat Calculator.
