  5. How will my Store Inventory Insertion Fees change if I change the Buy It Now starting price before the 30-day listing ends or the Good 'Til Cancelled listing renews?
    Increasing the Buy It Now starting price before the 30-day listing ends or the Good 'Til Cancelled listing renews will generate an additional charge to your invoice; however, decreasing the Buy It Now starting price will not generate an additional charge to your invoice. Similar to Auction-style with Buy It Now listings on Core, Store Inventory Insertion Fees are not pro-rated based on a partial duration. Please see example below for more information.

    Example: Changing the Buy It Now price on a Good 'Til Cancelled (GTC) listing before the 30 day duration ends

    Seller Increases Buy It Now Price from $20 to $28

    Date

    Action

    Insertion Fee
    August 22 Start listing at $20 $0.05
    August 28 Revise Buy It Now price to $28 $0.05 (the difference between the $0.05 fee already paid for the period, and the $0.10 fee that now applies given the new Buy It Now price)
    September 22 GTC renews at $28 $0.10


    Seller Decreases Buy It Now Price from $28 to $20

    Date

    Action

    Insertion Fee
    August 22 Start listing at $28 $0.10
    August 28 Revise Buy It Now price to $20 No additional fee
    September 22 GTC renews at $20 $0.05


  6. How does a multiple item Store Inventory listing impact my Insertion Fees?
    Similar to today, the Store Inventory Insertion Fee will cover any quantity of items with a single listing, whether you list 1 or 1,000 of the same item. For example, a listing that starts at $2.00 will be charged a $0.05 Insertion Fee regardless of the item quantity associated with that listing.
