When are Final Value Fees charged?

Final Value Fees are charged on the completion of a sale. eBay deducts fees and selling costs related to your sales from your funds prior to payout.

How do eBay fees differ from marketplaces?

eBay continues to remain the most cost-competitive online marketplace for sneaker resale among competitors like GOAT, StockX, and Stadium Goods. From no-fee verified returns and seller protections through Authenticity Guarantee, to tools and resources to build and boost your business, to the highest sales velocity of any marketplace, eBay equips sellers like no other to accelerate and scale their businesses.

How do the selling fees relate to Authenticity Guarantee?

They are unrelated. eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee is a service designed to protect sellers and allow buyers to shop with confidence. Our expert authenticators physically inspect all eligible items before they are shipped to buyers and inspect all returns prior to sending them back to sellers. Sneakers are eligible for Authenticity Guarantee based on their brand and selling price, see more details here.
