Special Notes

  • 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 September 2021, ebay now charges 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.
  • Paypal has raised their fees as of August 2nd, 2021 for domestic orders in the US.
  • 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 Motors?

Fees vary based on what options you choose for your listing. There are also packages of preset options that you can select as well as opposed to choosing individual options. The selection and availability of options and packages will vary based on the volume of vehicles you sell in a year. For more details, check the corresponding section below.

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 plus 30 cents. This fee only exists if you choose to require a deposit in the listing and successfully sell your vehicle.

How much do eBay Motors and paypal take in fees?

For eBay Motors, most fees are small fixed fees under $100 while for paypal, the fee is 2.99% + $0.49 for domestic sales.

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.

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.

The selection of options and packages depend on whether you're using the quick listing tool or the advanced 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 advanced 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.
