Summary

Enter your values into the calculator above to calculate your fees and profit when selling on ebay.com in the US. You'll then get your estimated results and a quick summary down here.

Given the options that you've provided, if you sell an item for 0 on ebay.com in the US which you originally acquired for 0 along with a shipping charge of 0 and a shipping cost of 0, then you should make 0 in profit after 0 in total fees. In terms of percentage, the fees end up being around 0 % of your revenue. This results in a profit margin of about 0 % after including your costs. Based on your item cost of 0, your return on cost should be around 0 %.

Special Notes

  • The organization of fees is completely different when selling vehicles on eBay Motors. As a result, we've separated that into its own calculator as opposed to cramming everything into one. If you're interested in selling vehicles on eBay Motors, please check out our eBay Motors Calculator.
  • Paypal has raised their fees as of August 2nd, 2021. For example, domestic sales in the US have been raised from 2.9% + $0.30 to 2.99% + $0.49.
  • eBay has raised their fees as of April 1st, 2021. For example, their default final value fee rate for non-store members for sales under $7,500 using ebay managed payments has been raised from 12.35% + $0.30 to 12.55% + $0.30.
  • For our calculator, numbers are rounded to 2 decimal places in the normal fashion. (For example, 1.005 rounds to 1.01) Third-party calculators from other sources may round numbers in a different way and as a result may show slightly different numbers.
  • The "Business & Industrial" item category has a few subcategories ("Heavy Equipment", "Commercial Printing Presses" ,"Food Trucks, Trailers & Carts") that have a mandatory $20 insertion fee with no free insertion quotas regardless of any factor. As a result, we've included it within the ebay fee number in our calculations if you select that item category. Otherwise, insertion fees are not included in our calculator as most categories have rather sizeable free quotas.
  • Fees for selling NFTs while using paypal as your payment processor instead of ebay managed payments are not listed on any ebay documentation so at the moment, we're assuming the default fees are applied in such scenarios.
  • The "Athletic Shoes" category has zero final value fees if the sale price is over $100. As a result of this, there is no exact breakeven point (profit of zero) if your costs and prices are in a narrow band around the $100 zone. In other words, there's a cutoff point where you either make money or you lose money. In this case, our calculator provides the lowest sale price you'll need to be able to profit. (So don't be surprised if you take the breakeven price and plug it back into the calculator to see a positive profit amount instead of a zero.)
  • If you're using paypal as your payment processor and you make an international sale, the fixed portion of the paypal fee varies a little bit based on what currency the buyer uses to pay with. For simplicity's sake in this scenario, our calculator just uses the normal fixed fee from paying with US Dollars. (Note that the difference is only several cents) You can find more information about this below in the details about paypal fees section.

How are fees calculated on ebay?

There are various types of fees when selling on ebay. Some of them are calculated based on a percentage amount, some of them are a fixed amount, and some of them combine both percentage and fixed amounts. Note that most percentage based fees include shipping and taxes in their calculations.

What percentage does ebay take?

The main fee is called the final value fee and it varies based on the item category, whether you're an ebay store or not, what plan you're on (if you're an ebay store), what payment system you're using (whether that be ebay managed payments or paypal), and the price of the item. Depending on these factors, the percentage can range from 0% to 15%. For more details, check out our detail section below.

How much are ebay and paypal fees?

For ebay, the fees can range from 0% to 15% while for paypal, it's much simpler. Paypal fees are 2.99% + $0.49 for domestic sales while international sales get an extra 1.5% on top, resulting in a total fee of 4.49% + $0.49.

How does ebay calculate the final value fee?

ebay calculates the final value fee based on what they call the "total sale amount" which includes shipping. If you're using ebay managed payments as your payment system, sales tax is also included in the "total sale amount". Generally, a percentage is multiplied against this, then a fixed fee is sometimes added on top.

Details about eBay Fees and eBay Seller Fees

The primary seller fee that ebay charges is called the final value fee. This fee is calculated on the total sale amount which includes shipping (and sales tax too if using ebay managed payments) and varies based on four main factors which are:

  • the item category
  • whether you're an ebay store or not
  • if you're an ebay store, what plan you're on
  • and what payment system you're using (whether that be ebay managed payments or paypal)

We've included four tables below that outline this selling fee in each of these scenarios.

The final value fee can be further modified depending on your seller level.

For "Top Rated" sellers, ebay provides a discount of 10% off the percentage portion of their final value fee which typically shows up at the end of the month when you receive your invoice. There are many various terms associated with how this discount works. We'll list some of the most prominent ones here. You must be a resident of the country in which you're top rated in order to qualify for this discount. There may be special requirements depending on the item category. For the rest of the details, please refer to ebay's documentation. When you select the "Top Rated" option in our calculator, we're assuming you've checked and made sure you qualify for the discount.

Note that this discount is calculated off of your fees and not on the amount of the sale. For example, if the fee was originally 11%, your fees would not go to 1% with the "Top Rated" 10% discount. The discount itself would simply be your fee multiplied by 10%, which would then be subtracted from your total fees.

On the other hand, "Below Standard" sellers (which ebay sometimes refers to as "sellers not meeting performance expectations") get a penalty in the way of an extra 5% fee on top of their existing final value fee. In contrast to the "Top Rated" discount, this penalty fee is calculated off of the total amount of the sale.

Additionally, there are supplemental fees for selling internationally, promoting your listing, potentially having sales tax processed, and various other miscellaneous ebay selling fees like making the title of your listing bold, for example. Our calculator should be able to handle all of these too. Just make sure to click on the right switches to indicate so and enter your values. If you're looking for more details about these, please see their corresponding details sections below.

Note that the final value fee is only applied when you successfully complete a sale.

International Fee

  • There is an additional 1.65% ebay selling fee for international sales. This is calculated off of the "total sale amount", which includes shipping and sales tax.
  • "Athletic shoes" over $100 have no final value fee, but the international fee still applies if you sell internationally.

Promoted Listings Fee

  • A Promoted Listings fee is charged based on the ad rate selected by the seller. The ad rate is a percentage of only the item's final sale price (excluding shipping and taxes), and is only charged when a buyer clicks on the promoted listing and purchases the promoted item within 30 days of that click. The fee is based on the ad rate that was in effect when the promoted listing was last clicked.

Other Miscellaneous Fees

  • For details about other miscellaneous ebay selling fees, such as optional listing upgrade fees, please check on ebay's website.

Notes About Sales Tax

  • Sales tax varies based on the state. (In some cases, it can even vary based on the city) As this is ever changing, we do not provide this information but we do provide a field where you can enter it if desired. Note that some states do not charge sales tax on shipping. However, since the majority do charge sales tax on shipping, our calculator assumes so to be on the conservative side.
  • eBay automatically collects sales tax from buyers and remits sales tax on behalf of sellers when applicable in most states. In other words, it is the buyer who pays this tax so this will not directly cut into your profit. However, it can still indirectly affect your profit since the total sale amount used in fee calculations sometimes includes sales tax.
  • For more information about how ebay handles sales tax, please visit ebay's website.

Details about Paypal Fees in the US

Paypal fees are also calculated based on the total sale amount (which includes shipping and sales tax, if present).
