• Please note: Due to high demand, the valets are currently experiencing a 2-4 week delay in processing orders. The valets are working hard to get caught up and expect to be back on track within 4-5 weeks.

Questions? No Problem.

  • What items can I send in?

    A valet will sell your electronics, collectibles, and musical instruments, as well as designer clothing, shoes and handbags. There are exceptions, of course, but there are treasures all over your house that valets love to sell.

  • What about shipping costs?

    There are no shipping costs with eBay Valet. Simply box up your items and ship them to the valets using our prepaid shipping label. You can also drop off your items at your local FedEx Office location where your items will be packed and shipped to the valets. If your item goes unsold, the valets will return it to you for free.

  • How do Valets price items?

    Valets are selling experts that look at eBay’s trending prices to make sure you get the most for your item. If your item goes unsold, the valets will relist it at a reduced price.

  • Is there a fee?

    eBay Valet takes a percentage of your item’s final selling price. As of August 30, 2016, the new pricing is as follows:

    Item Selling Price You earn
    >=$500.00 80%
    $250.00 - $499.99 70%
    $100.00 - $249.99 60%
    $50.00 - $99.99 50%
    $25.00 - $49.99 40%
    <$25.00 25%
  • What if I created a label and sent my items or dropped them off at an eBay drop-off center before August 30, 2016?

    Only labels created or items dropped off at an eBay Drop-Off center on or after August 30, 2016 will be charged the new fees. Any labels created or items dropped off at an eBay Drop-Off center before August 30, 2016 will follow the previous pricing structure as shown below:

    Item Selling Price You earn
    >=$200.00 80%
    $50.00 - $199.99 70%
    <$50.00 60%
  • What classifies an item as "new"?

    A valet will sell both new and used items, but only items in factory-sealed original packaging will be considered in "new" condition.

  • When do I get paid?

    You'll be paid for each item after it sells. Valets will send you a payment within 2 business days after the buyer has paid for the item. All payments are through PayPal.

    Here's how it works:

    • Valets receive your items within 4 business days after you mail them in or drop them off. You will receive an email confirming your list of items within 10 business days of the shipping carrier delivering your items to the valets.

    • Valets will review your items and list all eligible items for sale within another 15 business days. If something you sent in turns out to be something that isn't eligible for the valet program, the valets will return those items to you.

    • Your items are for sale on eBay for up to 60 days.

    • Valets will send you a payment within 2 business days after the buyer has paid for the item.

    • Unsold and ineligible items are returned to you within 7 business days after all items have sold or been for sale for 60 days.
