Special Notes

  • 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 ebay.com.au.
  • If you're using paypal as your payment processor and you make an international sale, both the percentage portion and the fixed portion of the paypal fee will vary based on the location of the buyer. The percentage portion will vary based on the region group while the fixed portion 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.

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 for non-store sellers while not including GST in their fees and tables for ebay store sellers. However, this doesn't mean ebay will not collect GST from your fees if you're an ebay store. They will still collect GST so your real rates will simply be higher than those listed in the tables for ebay store sellers. All of our tables above have notes that mention this.
  • However, regardless of whether or not you're an ebay store or not, 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, ebay says 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 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.
