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 for Australia, 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.au in Australia. 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 Australia.
  • Starting from winter 2021, ebay has removed all mentions of paypal integration and fees since their roll out for 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 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 documentation and also confirmed by ebay support. However, this may change at anytime.

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%.
  • eBay includes GST in their fees and tables.
  • Note that ebay's documentation also says that "if you're a business customer and are registered for GST in Australia, you can get a GST exemption if you register your Australian Business Number (ABN) with eBay." In other words, they're saying that "if you're a business customer and you provided your Australian Business Number (ABN) to eBay during registration, [they] won't add GST to your eBay fees." If this is the case for you, simply toggle the "provided abn to ebay" field in our calculator and GST will not be included in the fees.
  • 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.
