America eBay Fee For Selling

eBay’s fees are calculated based on whether you own a store or not. If you do own a store, then fees will vary based on your listed item category.

On top of that, eBay also rewards eBay sellers with a feature called Top Rated Seller, which provides a 20% 10% discount off your final fee (except some categories). Check out eBay website to understand the requirements.

Sometimes the Top Rated Seller discount come off at the end of the month when you receive your eBay invoice. So be patient 🙂 Thanks Ashley for this tip!

There is a maximum final value fee cap per item sold (not shown in calculator). It varies depending on the category of the item and your store type.

For more information on eBay's final value fees, check out eBay website.

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

PayPal fees is 3.4% + $0.49 of the total selling price including the sales tax. This fee is calculated before eBay fees.
For international transaction, PayPal charge 4.99% + $0.49.

For more information on PayPal fees, check out PayPal website.

eBay Managed Payments fees is 2.7% + $0.25 of the total selling price. This fee is calculated before eBay fees.
There is no difference for international transaction.

For more information on eBay Managed Payments fees, check out Managed Payments website.

Starting from November 2019, eBay starts collecting sales tax when you sells to buyers based in the US. Sales tax is collected on top of your sold price and will not eat into your profit. Since the sales tax is always changing and varies from state to state, we just list an optional 'Sales Tax' field above which you can input any percentage that is applicable to you.

eBay fee excludes sales tax but PayPal and Managed Payments fee includes sales tax.

Each state charges a different sales tax and might also applies to your shipping & handling charges (yes, it's very confusing). Taxjar has a pretty good table to explain all these. They also show you how to set the sales tax on eBay. Note that in some states, sales tax does not include shipping & handling charges.
