Calculating Final Value Fees for Your eBay Auction Items

eBay’s version of the Hollywood back-end deal is the Final Value Fee. Big stars get a bonus when their movies do well at the box office; eBay gets a cut when your item sells. When the revenue is posted, eBay charges the Final Value Fee to your account in a matter of seconds.

Then, if you don’t have an eBay Store, you pay a flat 10 percent of your final selling price including any shipping you charge the buyer. If you have an eBay Store, the fee varies by category.

A classified ad in the Real Estate category is not charged a Final Value Fee, and eBay doesn’t charge a percentage Final Value Fee on an auction in the Real Estate category as in other categories.

You pay a flat FVF of $35 for Timeshares and Land and no FVF for Commercial or Residential. But in the Automotive category, you pay a flat Successful Transaction Services Fee of $125 for vehicles if your auction ends with a winning bidder (and the reserve has been met).

When you’re selling a vehicle (car, truck, or RV) through eBay Motors, you’re getting a great deal as a seller: You pay $0 to list your item, and the successful listing fee is only $125 when the item sells.
