Who should use the Global Shipping Program?
If you’re currently selling internationally, your items have an average selling price of $50 or more, and you’re shipping parcels, the Program is an ideal solution. It’s also the perfect way to get started selling globally regardless of the average selling price of your items.

Enrollment in the Program is free. The usual eBay and PayPal fees apply to your sold items. Your final value fee is based on the final sale price of the item plus the price of your first domestic shipping option to the US shipping center.
How do I enroll and apply the Program to my listings?
When the Program is available to you, a banner will appear on your All Selling, Selling Manager, or Selling Manager Pro page in My eBay inviting you to opt in. Go to My eBay > Account > Site preferences > Selling preferences > Shipping preferences. See program details for info.
Is the Program available on my mobile app?
Buyers can purchase Global Shipping Program items from mobile phones when they use the latest version of the eBay mobile buying application. At this time, the Global Shipping Program isn't available through the mobile selling application.
