What you need to know

  • Final value fee change in most categories
  • Subtitle listing upgrade fee change for fixed price and auction listings
  • Change to Promoted Listings Standard ad fee calculation methodology

Final value fee increase in most categories

Starting on March 1, 2022, final value fees for Store sellers will increase 0.3% in most categories. For example, sellers with a Basic and above eBay Store who sell in the Home & Garden category will see an increase from 11.7% to 12.0%, a difference of 0.3%. Final value fees for sellers without a Store will increase 0.35% in most categories. For example, sellers who sell in the eBay Motors Parts & Accessories category without a Store will see an increase from 12.55% to 12.9%, a difference of 0.35%.

Fees vary across categories as eBay always strives to achieve lowest total fees across category competitors. Fees also vary for sellers with and without an eBay Store subscription.


Subtitle listing upgrade fee increase

Starting March 1, 2022, the optional Subtitle listing upgrade fee will increase $0.50. The increase will apply to items with an auction start price or Buy it Now price up to $150.

  • For auction listings, the new fee will be $1.50. Previously, the fee was $1.00.
  • For fixed price listings, the new fee will be $2.00. Previously, the fee was $1.50.

Adding an optional Subtitle listing upgrade to your listing can increase buyer interest by providing more descriptive information about your item. We encourage you to evaluate your listings to determine if the Subtitle listing upgrade is right for you.

Change to Promoted Listings Standard ad fee calculation methodology

On June 1, 2022, the Promoted Listings Standard ad fee calculation will change to align more closely with how we calculate final value fees. Specifically, the ad fee will be calculated in all markets based on the total amount of the sale for each attributed sale, using the same basis we use to calculate final value fees (including applicable taxes, shipping and other applicable fees described here). Currently, in certain markets including the US, the Promoted Listings Standard ad rate applies only to the final price of the item.

Sellers are talking about the Winter 2022 Seller Update in the eBay Community.
