United Kingdom eBay & PayPal Fees Structure

eBay’s fees are calculated based on whether you are a business or private seller. If you are a business seller, the final value fee will vary based on your listed item category, regardless of your shop type.

On top of that, eBay also rewards seller with a feature called Top Rated Seller, which provides a 10% discount off your final fee. Check out eBay website to understand the requirements.

There is a maximum final value fee cap of $250 for per item sold.

Business sellers are also charged additional 20% VAT.
If you're registered for VAT, then you can claim back the VAT of the item cost and eBay final value fee but the government will also take 20% of what you charged your customer.

For more information on eBay’s final value fees, check out their private or business seller centre.

If you’re selling a vehicle (excluding parts & accessories), please refer to eBay’s fees for Motors.
If you’re selling a service, please refer to eBay’s fees for Classified Ads.

If you're enrolled in eBay Managed Payments, no PayPal fee will be charged and the final value fee will be higher. For more information, please refer to their page on Managed Payment.
