Fees for selling vehicles on eBay Motors

The fees for listing and selling a vehicle on eBay Motors are different from the fees for listing and selling in other categories. The amount we charge for vehicle listings depends on the type of vehicle you list, whether you're considered a low- or high-volume seller, and the listing tool you use to create your listing.

When using the quick listing tool to create a vehicle listing, you can take advantage of our package pricing; a bundle of features for a set price.

For high-volume sellers creating vehicle listings using the advanced tool, we charge an insertion fee when you create the listing and a successful listing fee when your vehicle sells. Fees also apply for any optional listing upgrades and supplemental services you use.

Motors vehicles listings are those within the Cars & Trucks, Motorcycles, Powersports, Boats, and Other Vehicles & Trailers categories.

High- vs low-volume sellers

Your fees for vehicle listings are determined in part by your status as a high- or low-volume seller.

If you list up to six vehicles in a calendar year (January 1 to December 31), you're considered a low-volume seller. If you list seven or more vehicles in any calendar year, then you're considered a high-volume seller. Each time you submit a vehicle listing or relist a vehicle, it counts as one listing. Once you become a high-volume seller, you'll keep that status permanently, year after year.

Package pricing for vehicle listings created using the quick listing tool

When you list a vehicle using our quick listing tool, you're offered a package of features for an all-inclusive fee. Low-volume sellers have 3 package options to choose from (Basic, Plus, and Premium), while high-volume sellers are offered 2 package options, Plus or Premium. All sellers can choose between auction-style or fixed price format for their listing package selection. There are no additional listing upgrade options other than those included in the selected package, and we don't charge a successful listing fee when your vehicle sells.

Fees for high-volume sellers using the advanced tool

Insertion and successful listing fees

We charge an insertion fee when you list a vehicle. We also charge a successful listing fee when the vehicle sells, if the sale meets one of these criteria:

  • You receive a bid on your auction-style listing (if you have a reserve price, the bid must meet that reserve)
  • A buyer selects Buy It Now in your fixed price listing
  • You accept a Best Offer

The amount we charge depends on whether the listing category and the vehicle's price, which is the final bid amount, Buy It Now price, or your accepted Best Offer.

Listing durations

When you create a listing, you can select auction-style or fixed price format with a listing duration of 3, 5, 7, or 10 days. If you use fixed price, you can also list your vehicle for up to 30 days. We charge an upgrade fee for 10 and 30-day durations.
