Making a onetime payment
In this article
In this article


Even though all sellers are required to have an automatic payment method on file, you can also make a onetime payment for your eBay fees using any of the following payment methods:

  • PayPal

  • Direct debit

  • Credit card

Important: The option to make a onetime payment allows sellers to pay their eBay fees. This isn't a method for buyers to pay sellers.

Coordinating onetime and automatic payments

Because you're required to have an automatic payment method on file, be sure you aren't making a duplicate payment when you make a onetime payment for your fees. Allow at least 5 days between any onetime payment and your automatic scheduled payment.

  3. Under Payment methods for Seller Fees, click the onetime payment link and follow the on-screen instructions.

PayPal

  • You must be a registered user of eBay.com, eBay.ca, or eBay.co.uk.

  • You must be billed in US Dollars, UK Pounds, Canadian Dollars, Euros, or Yen.

  • If you have funds directly available in your PayPal account, your payment will be posted to your eBay account within minutes.

  • If you fund your PayPal account through your checking account, your eBay account will reflect the payment as "pending" until the funds have cleared.

  • You can check the status of your payment in your PayPal account. You can also visit your eBay account status page to see when the payment is posted to your eBay account.

For help with PayPal payments, contact PayPal Customer Support.

Direct debit from a checking account

  • You must be billed in US dollars.

  • You must use a US checking account.

Credit cards

  • You don't have to use the same credit card that you used to become an eBay seller.

  • Your credit card will normally be charged 5 to 7 days after you receive your invoice.
