Paying your seller fees
In this article
In this article


When you set up your seller account, you specify an automatic payment method to pay your seller fees. You can also pay fees with a onetime payment. If you make a onetime payment, check your billing cycle date to make sure you allow at least 5 days between your scheduled automatic payment and your onetime payment to prevent duplicate payments.

You can update your checking account information or remove a payment method from your account any time.

Ways you can pay

You can pay your seller fees in several ways.

  • PayPal

    PayPal is a safe, convenient way to pay your eBay fees. When you sign up for monthly PayPal payments, your amount due is automatically deducted from your PayPal account each month. You can also make a onetime payment using your PayPal account.

  • Automatic credit card payments

    Each month, we automatically charge your fees directly to the credit card you place on file. Your credit card is usually charged 5 to 7 days after you receive your invoice. You can also make a onetime payment with your credit card.

  • Direct Pay from your checking account

    Direct Pay is available to sellers who are billed in US dollars who have a US bank account.. With Direct Pay, we automatically deduct your seller fees from your checking account on the same day each month. To sign up for Direct Pay, you'll need to provide your bank account and routing number, which are shown on the bottom of your checks. You can also make a onetime Direct Pay payment from your checking account. Your payment will be posted to your account within 2 business days.

  • Check (for businesses only)

    It may take up to 10 business days after we receive your check to process and post the payment to your account. When paying by check, submit a payment coupon along with your check and mail it to the address on the coupon. Allow 10 business days plus delivery time between the date you mail the payment and your payment due date.

Your payment due date

Your payment due date is based on your billing cycle date.

  • If your billing date is on the 15th of the month, your payment is due by the 15th of the following month. 

  • If your billing date is on the last day of the month, your payment is due by the last day of the following month.

If your account balance is past due, your account may be suspended for non-payment, you'll be subject to late fees, and you may be responsible for collection and related legal costs. Learn more about payment requirements and late fees.

Credits and refunds

In certain situations, you might be able to receive a credit for seller fees. Find out more about insertion fee credits and final value fee credits.

We're happy to send you a refund if you have a credit balance on your account. Learn how to request a refund.
