Ebay Fees, how much ??

Post by landowner » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:19 am

Does any one know how much it costs to sell say a £4000 vehicle on ebay?
My computer takes ages to troll through the rules as it's very old, is it basic fees plus a percentage of the end price ? I think they charge for using paypal as well, I was told it's ten per cent but that seems rather a lot

I think cars attract a fixed fee (£25/30?) - it’s everything else that has a percentage of the sale price levied.

It depends how you sell it. When I've sold cars on eBay I've used the "Classified Ad" format. It allows you to set a price and accept offers. It also allows you to make contact with buyers outside of eBay and cost about £35 last time I used it. Cheaper than using the eBay "Buy it Now" format too.

Personally I hate selling cars by auction, as the initial cheap price brings out all the dreamers who can't afford it and just waste your time with silly offers and stupid questions. It also means you have to pay eBay a much higher fee when it does sell (quite often at a lower price than you really wanted) !

Setting up a classified on eBay is the best method and it's there for 28 days for a single fee.

It's not as obvious as it should be to select the classified option, but it is on there.

If you're not in a hurry, then a Classified Advert has worked for me in the past - you can't argue with the footfall of eBay although others have had good results with carandclassic,co.uk (which also shows eBay listings in its search results). C&C is free, so might be worth a try?

Made a listing in ebay classified and saved it, stated cost was just over fifteen pounds for twenty eight days so maybe I'll go with that, thanks for the input everyone :D

The last couple of cars I have sold have been on carand Classic . It is free and i have always had a great response ,can’t praise it enough . One important thing to bear in mind is PayPal fees .

True, for a car I only accept Cash or BACS. Absolutely no PayPal, as well as the silly fees it can be reversed in some circumstances.
