Special Notes

  • If you notice that the fees have changed or if you notice a major miscalculation or error with our ebay motors fee calculator, feel free to direct message us on twitter and let us know.
  • This calculator is only for calculating fees and profits when selling vehicles on eBay Motors with ebay.com in the US. If you're looking to sell non-vehicle items like parts and accessories under the eBay Motors category, please check out our normal eBay Calculator for ebay.com.
  • Starting from 2022, ebay will charge a "deposit processing fee" if you choose to list a vehicle with a deposit requirement and successfully sell the vehicle. For more details, see the corresponding section below.
  • Starting from winter 2021, ebay has removed all mentions of paypal integration and fees since their roll out for ebay managed payments has finished. Therefore, our calculator no longer provides an option to calculate associated paypal fees since no sellers are allowed to use paypal anymore and there is no longer any official information about it.
  • Since the ebay managed payment rollout has concluded, paypal integration is no longer supported. With ebay managed payments, there are currently no credit card processing fees or extra final value fee for selling vehicles on eBay Motors. This is confirmed by the lack of any mention of said fee on ebay docmentation and also confirmed by ebay support. However, this may change at anytime.

Frequently Asked Questions

How are fees calculated on eBay Motors?

Fees vary based on what package of options you choose for your listing. Depending on the volume of vehicles you sell in a year, there is also the ability to forgo a package set of options so that you can select individual options. Making use of an ebay motors calculator to handle these complex rules is a good idea.

What percentage does eBay Motors take?

As far as fees go when selling vehicles on eBay Motors, most are small fixed fees but there is one percentage based fee called the deposit processing fee which is 2.8% of the deposit. This fee only exists if you choose to require a deposit in the listing and successfully sell your vehicle. This ebay motors calculator provides the estimated fees you can expect to see.

Details about eBay Motors Fees

Fees are much simpler when selling vehicles on eBay Motors when compared to selling anything else on ebay, which involves a final value fee that varies based on a multitude of factors.

These fees, which are mostly all fixed fees with the exception of the deposit processing fee, can be separated and organized based on the sale price, the item category chosen for the listing, and the volume of vehicles you sell in a year.

Seller Type Based on Volume

Your listing options will vary based on your seller type which is based on the volume of vehicles you sell in a year.

If you list up to six vehicles in a calendar year (January 1 to December 31), ebay considers you to be a low-volume seller.

If you list seven or more vehicles in any calendar year, then ebay considers you to be a high-volume seller. Each time you submit a vehicle listing or relist a vehicle, ebay counts that as one listing. Once you become a high-volume seller, you'll keep that status permanently, year after year.

Selection of Listing Options

The selection of options depend on whether you're using the quick listing tool or the business tool. Low-volume sellers only get access to the quick listing tool which offers a choice of listing packages while high-volume sellers also get access to that along with the business tool which allows them to choose individual options as opposed to selecting a listing package.

If you decide to go for a package, your ebay fees will simply be the cost of the package plus a deposit processing fee, should you decide to require a deposit on the listing.
