Downloading invoice details
In this article
In this article


You can download a file containing the details for any invoice created within the last 18 months.

You can save your invoice details as an HTML or a comma-separated values (CSV) file. Many applications (such as Microsoft Excel) can open CSV files, making this a useful format for saving invoice data.

Why should I download invoice details?

If you just want to look at your invoice onscreen, you don’t need to download invoice details. Learn more about displaying your invoice onscreen.

However, you might want to download invoice details if:

  • You want to save a copy of your invoice for future reference.

  • You want to analyze your invoice in a spreadsheet program or other application.

  • You changed the display format of your invoice to Summary format, and want a record of your invoice details. Learn more about choosing your invoice display format.

Downloading details for a single invoice

To download invoice details:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. Place your pointer over the Account tab.

  3. Click the Seller account link.

  4. On the next page, in the Invoices box, select the invoice you want to download from the Select Invoice drop-down menu.

  5. Click Go.

  6. Click the Download link in the upper-right corner of the invoice.

  7. On the Download Invoice page, select the HTML or CSV option.

  8. Click the Download button.

  9. You can then choose to open the file immediately or save it on your computer.

If your invoice is large, you won't be able to download it right away, but we'll notify you when the file is ready.

Once it's ready, here's how to get it:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. Place your pointer over the Account tab.

  3. Click the Seller account link.

  4. On the next page, in the Invoices box, click the link Download invoices / account history. A window will pop up containing a link to your available invoices.

Note: If you request a large invoice download, it will generally be ready in 24-48 hours. However, if you request the download during a billing cycle (at the beginning and middle of the month) it may take up to a week to get your file.

Requesting a monthly download

If you know that you'll want a download of your invoice each month, you can set up an automatic monthly download of your detailed invoice.

To request a monthly file of invoice details:
  1. Under General Preferences, locate Seller billing preferences and click the Show link.

  2. Select the option to Automatically generate a CSV invoice monthly and inform me.

  3. Click Apply.

Note: In most cases, the download will be ready 24-48 hours after you get our email notifying you that your invoice is available for viewing on the site. However, in some cases it might take up to a week.

Once it's ready, here's how to get it:
  1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

  2. Place your pointer over the Account tab.

  3. Click the Seller account link.

  4. On the next page, in the Invoices box, click the link Download invoices / account history. A window will pop up containing a link to your available invoices.
