I’ve just noticed that my insertion fees on eBay are quite high. Over £20

I run a business on eBay, but don’t have an eBay shop. Are shops charged insertion fees? As my fees are higher than the cheapest shop from what I can see.

If not, any advice on lowering my insertion fees?

    Shops come with varying inclusions - you have to work out if the amount of listings and add-ons are worth it for you.

    The link the onlywayisup posted is a very good place to start. However with only £20 insertion fees (I'm assuming these are a month) it would be more expensive to have a shop.

    I did have a shop though when I was borderline on fees but that's because I needed the holiday settings and the ability to turn my listings off entirely when I was unable to post for any reason.
