Shipping rates for buyers

You can find out how much shipping costs in the shipping section of every eBay listing. We always show the shipping cost separately from the item cost so you can see exactly how much you’ll pay for delivery before you go to checkout.

If the item you’re interested in is located overseas, keep in mind that international shipping can cost more. You’ll find more information in our article on international shipping.

Where to find the cost of shipping

You can find the cost of shipping, as well as the seller’s shipping options—including any express shipping services or combined shipping discounts—and whether tracking is available, on the listing. Select See details next to the shipping cost at the top of the listing. Alternatively, select the Shipping and payments tab.

If you're buying multiple items from the same seller, you may be able to save on the shipping costs if the seller offers combined shipping.

When you’re searching for an item, select the Free shipping filter on the left-hand side of the search results page to see listings that don’t charge for delivery. You can also search for items with local pickup.

Increased shipping rates after a purchase

Once you’ve bought an item, the seller can’t increase shipping rates without asking your permission to do so. If the seller makes a change that you don’t agree with, and you can’t resolve the issue directly with them, contact us and we’ll step in to help.
