Special Notes

  • The organization of fees is completely different when selling vehicles on eBay Motors in Australia. 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 in Australia, please check out our eBay Motors Calculator for Australia.
  • 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.
  • 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 Tier 1 category group for ebay stores using paypal as their payment processor has a lower final value fee rate if the sale price is over $250 (note, the fee isn't a progressive fee). 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 $250 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 Australian 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 in Australia?

There are various types of fees 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 in their calculations.

What percentage does ebay take in Australia?

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 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 5% to 13.4%. For more details, check out our detail section below.

How much are ebay and paypal fees in Australia?

For ebay, the fees can range from 5% to 13.4% while for paypal, it's much simpler. Paypal fees are 2.6% + $0.30 for domestic sales while international sales get an extra 1% on top.

How does ebay calculate the final value fee in Australia?

ebay calculates the final value fee based on what they call the "total sale amount" which includes shipping. Generally, a percentage is multiplied against this, then a fixed fee is sometimes added on top.

Do ebay fees include GST in Australia?

eBay fees do not include GST if you provide your ABN (Australian Business Number) to ebay. Otherwise, the fees will include GST.

Details about eBay Fees and eBay Seller Fees in Australia

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. It varies based on four main factors which are:

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

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.

"Below Standard" sellers (which ebay sometimes refers to as "sellers not meeting performance expectations") get a penalty in the way of an extra 4% fee on top of their existing final value fee. (with GST, this penalty becomes 4.4%) This penalty fee is calculated off of the total amount of the sale.

Unlike the US, Canada, and UK, the "Top Rated" seller program in Australia does not provide a 10% discount in final value fees. Since it doesn't affect the calculation of fees, our calculator does not include that as a selectable option.

Additionally, there are supplemental fees for selling internationally, promoting your listing, potentially having sales tax (GST) 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% for international sales (which is 1.1% when including GST). This is calculated off of the "total sale amount", which includes shipping.

Promoted Listings Fee

  • Promoted Listings in Australia may have either a flat fee (in other words, a fixed amount) or a percentage fee based on the ad rate selected by the seller. For percentage based fees, the ad rate is a percentage of only the item's final sale price (excluding shipping), and is only charged when a buyer clicks on the promoted listing and purchases the promoted item. Note that the fee is based on the ad rate that was in effect when the promoted listing was last clicked.
  • If you are using a flat fee, enable the "Other Costs" field in our calculator and enter your fixed fee amount. Otherwise, if you are using a percentage based ad rate, enable the "Promoted Listing" field in our calculator and enter your percentage.
  • If you have not provided your ABN to ebay, our calculator will automatically add a GST of 10% on top of your promoted listing ad rate to make the resultant fee consistent with all the other ebay fees (which already include GST for sellers that have not provided their ABNs to ebay).
  • Otherwise, if you have provided your ABN to ebay (and toggled the "provided ABN to ebay" field in our calculator), our calculator will not include GST on top of your promoted listing ad rate.

Other Miscellaneous Fees

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

Notes about GST in the Australia

  • GST (Goods and Services Tax) is a VAT (Value Added Tax) that applies to everything including fees and revenue. The default GST rate is 10%.
  • Regardless of whether or not you're an ebay store or not, ebay's documentation says that "Australian GST of 10% is payable on your eBay fees. Unless you provided eBay with your ABN and registered for tax exempt status, we'll add GST to your eBay fees." If you have indeed provided your ABN to ebay, simply toggle the "provided abn to ebay" field in our calculator and GST will not be included in the ebay fees.
  • There seems to be some ambiguity about whether or not GST applies on paypal fees. Some sources indicate that paypal is a financial service and thus exempt. Our calculator assumes that this is the case and does not apply GST onto the paypal fees in our calculations. For more details, please consult with a tax professional.
  • As far as GST on revenue goes, there is a corresponding field for that in our calculator where you can enter the GST rate that you would like to apply to the revenue (item sold price + shipping charge). In other words, this means setting aside a portion of the revenue to pay for GST.

Details about Paypal Fees in Australia

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

  • Our calculator will automatically incorpoate a 10% GST into the paypal fee calculations.
