Fees for selling on eBay Motors
In this article
In this article

eBay Motors vehicle listings are those within the Cars & Trucks, Motorcycles, Powersports, Boats, and Other Vehicles categories.

Fees are different for eBay Motors > Parts & Accessories and eBay Motors > Automotive Tools & Supplies.

The Fees schedule includes this page and the below links for standard category listings, Real Estate, select Business & Industrial categories, Stores subscribers, and Classified Ads.

In addition to the fees on this page, other fees may apply, including:

When selling your vehicle, you have the option of an auction-style or fixed price selling format.

  • Auction-style durations: 3, 5, 7, or 10 days. (There's an extra fee for 10-day duration.)

  • Fixed price durations: 3, 5, 7, 10, or 21 days. (There's an extra fee for 10 and 21-day durations.)

eBay Motors fees vary depending on how many vehicles you sell in a calendar year. (A calendar year starts on January 1 and ends on December 31, and each time you submit a vehicle listing or relist a vehicle, it counts as one listing)

  • Low-volume seller

    You're a low-volume seller if you submit 6 or fewer vehicle listings each calendar year.

  • High-volume seller

    When you've submitted 7 or more vehicle listings in a single calendar year, you're considered a high-volume seller. Once you become a high-volume seller, you're permanently a high-volume seller and high-volume selling fees apply.

  • Seller A has never listed on eBay Motors. He lists 2 cars between January 1 and July 30. One car does not sell, so he relists it. It does not sell again, so he relists it a second time. When the next calendar year starts on January 1, because Seller A submitted 4 listings the previous year, he is still eligible for low-volume seller fees.

  • Seller B has also never listed on eBay Motors. She lists 6 different cars between January 1 and November 30. She is charged low-volume seller fees. When she lists a seventh car on December 15, she's no longer considered a low-volume seller and fees for high-volume sellers apply because she has submitted more than 6 listings in a calendar year. When the next calendar year starts on January 1, she'll be considered a high-volume seller.

How fees are calculated

Basic fees

Insertion fee

You may be charged a listing (or insertion) fee for listing a vehicle. If applicable, you're charged one insertion fee per listing.

Successful listing fee

If your vehicle sells, you may be charged a successful listing fee if:   

  • You receive a bid on an auction-style listing without a reserve price

  • You receive a bid that meets your reserve price on an auction-style listing with a reserve price

  • A buyer clicks Buy It Now in a listing offering a fixed price

  • You accept a Best Offer

The amount of the successful listing fee depends on if you're a low- or high-volume seller, and the vehicle price.


The vehicle price is the final bid amount, Buy It Now price, or accepted Best Offer.


There's no additional fee charged on the actual sale of the vehicle after it sells. However, you'll be charged a successful listing fee regardless of whether you carry out the sale with the buyer.

Optional Fees

Advanced listing upgrade fees

If you add advanced listing upgrades to your listing, fees apply.

Supplemental service fees

If you use supplemental services, charges associated with these services may be included on your seller invoice as fees.

Other terms

  • Insertion fees and advanced listing upgrade fees apply to each listing you create, are charged at the time of listing, and are nonrefundable. Fee amounts are based on the terms in effect when the listing goes live and when it renews.

  • Not all listing upgrades are available with every listing tool and not all advanced listing upgrades, when purchased, may be displayable across all our sites, services, applications, and tools.

  • We require payment in full each month on accounts with an amount due of $1 or more. If you haven't paid the amount due by the payment due date each month, late fees may apply. Learn more about payment requirements, due dates, and late fees.

  • We may limit the exposure of duplicate auction-style listings to ensure a positive buyer experience. If you list duplicate, identical auction-style listings, you'll be charged the full insertion fee for each listing even if a listing doesn't appear on eBay for the full duration of the listing. See the duplicate listings policy for more information.

  • Seller fees don't purchase exclusive rights to web pages on eBay. We may, in our sole discretion and without consent from or payment to sellers, display third-party advertisements (including links and references thereto) and listings from other sellers on any eBay web page.

  • When you submit your listing, it might not appear immediately in a keyword or category search. This can take up to 24 hours. Therefore, we can't guarantee exact listing durations.

  • All fees are in US dollars.
