Final Value Fees

Regular and Reserve Auctions
(when the reserve has been met)
The final value is the closing bid. Remember, there is no Final Value Fee charged if the reserve is not met.
The final value is the lowest successful bid, multiplied by the quantity of items you sold.
Then here's how you calculate your Final Value Fee:
Take the first $100.00 of your final value, and calculate 7% of that. If your item sold for $100.00 or less, this is your Final Value Fee.
If your final value was more than $100.00, take the additional amount, from $100.01 to $1000.00, and calculate 5% of that.
If your final value was more than $1000.00, take that additional amount and calculate 2.5% of the remaining amount.
Add these amounts together and you have your Final Value Fee!
Final Value Fee
|$0 - $100.00||7% of the closing value|
|$100.01 - $1000.00|| 7% of
the initial $100.00,
plus 5% of the remaining closing value balance.
|Over $1000.00|| 7% of
the initial $100.00,
plus 5% of the amount from $100.01-$1000.00,
plus 2.5% of the remaining closing value balance.
You will not be charged a
Final Value Fee if:
There were no bids on your item. Instead you are charged the insertion fee.
If there were no bids that met your reserve price for your Reserve Price Auction. Instead you are charged the insertion fee.
