- You'll never pay more than £250 as a final value fee.

Listing directly on our international sites
If your item sells, you'll pay the insertion and final value fees that apply to the site where you're listing. Check with your bank or payment service to find out if they charge an extra fee for accepting international payments.
By listing with eBay for Charity, you can donate up to 100% of your item's final sale price to a registered charity. We'll credit a percentage of your selling fees (excluding fees for optional listing upgrades) back to you, depending on your donation amount.

If you end an auction early and buyers have already placed bids, you may be charged a fee. This fee is the same as a final value fee, based on the item price when you ended the auction. You won't pay a fee if you cancel your auction within the first 24 hours of listing your item, or if we have to end your auction.
