Special Notes

  • This calculator is only for calculating fees and profits when selling vehicles on eBay Motors with ebay.ca in Canada. 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.ca.
  • 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 Canadian Dollars. (Note that the difference is only several cents) You can find more information about this below in the details about paypal fees section.

Details about eBay Motors Fees in Canada

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.

The fees are all fixed fees and they fall into three primary categories:

  • insertion fees
  • successful listing fees
  • and optional listing upgrade fees

These fees can be further 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.

Successful Listing fees for low-volume sellers

  • Note that there are no insertion fees for low-volume sellers.
  • As the name suggests, this listing fee is only applied when you successfully complete a sale.
