    Ebay final value fees

    Ebay final value fees 11th Oct 16 at 9:07 AM
    Firstly, I apologise, as this question has probably been asked and answered hundreds of times...

    I know ebay take a 10% cut of the final sale...but does that include the postage? Or just the cost of the item.
    I sold something for 0.99p with a £2.99 postage.

    I have tried to google a fee calculator, but all I get is a list of fees incurred when listing an item (extra pics etc)

    Thank you

    Yes the FVF is taken from the full amount including postage, the change to FVFs was made about 3-4 years ago.
    I'm the Board Guide for the Ebay Board , Charities Board , Dosh & Disability , Up Your Income and the Local MoneySaving-England board which means I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move posts there. However, do remember, board guides don't read every post. If you spot an illegal or inappropriate post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with this).

    As per soolin's post.

    FVF fees are generally 10% of the sale price including postage. They are billed on a monthly cycle to your Ebay account. Paypal fees are deducted at source as the amount hits your Paypal account.
