On 21 July 2011, the final value fee for fixed price listings (or Buy It Now) will be changed to a flat rate of 10%, up to a maximum Ä50.00. This new flat fee replaces the current tiered structure, making it simpler and easier for you to calculate up-front the fees youíll pay. As before, you wonít pay any final value fee if your items donít sell. The new calculations only apply to items listed or scheduled to start on or after the 21 July 2011.
This change affects listings of private sellers in all categories except:
- Cars, Motorcycles and Vehicles
- Mobile phones with contract
Insertion fees and optional feature fees remain unchanged. Free insertion fees for auction-style listings with a starting price of Ä1.49 or less will continue to be available.
The fee changes announced today are for private sellers only. Fees for business registered sellers are unchanged.
