Paying your eBay fees

Automatic payments

We ask that you set up an automatic payment method to pay your selling and other related eBay fees. You can do this through PayPal, direct debit or a credit card. Once you’ve set up your automatic payment method, we’ll send you an invoice every month and will automatically deduct your invoice amount from your automatic payment method.

How to set up automatic payments:

  1. Go to My eBay and select the Account tab.
  2. Below the account summary, you'll see Payment methods for seller fees.
  3. Click Set up automatic payments and follow the on-screen instructions.

Automatic payment methods:

PayPal
If you set up automatic payments with PayPal, we’ll deduct your invoice amount from your PayPal account within 15 days of when you receive your invoice.

Direct Debit
Make sure you allow 19 days for your bank to set up a direct debit to pay your fees. We’ll then deduct your invoice amount from your account within 15 days of when you receive your invoice.

If your bank declines payment, you’ll have to pay a £5.00 administration fee.

Credit card
You can place a credit card on file with us to make automatic monthly payments. We’ll deduct your invoice amount within 8 days of when you receive your invoice. 

One-time payments

If your automatic payment method doesn’t go through or you want to prevent a payment from being taken, you can make a one-off payment by PayPal, direct debit, credit or debit card, cheque or postal order. 

How to make a one-time payment:
  1. Go to My eBay and select the Account tab.
  2. Below ‘Payment methods for seller fees’ click one-time payment.
  3. Choose a payment method and follow the on-screen instructions.

Check the status of a payment by clicking ‘Payments and refunds’ in the Account section of My eBay.

Invoices and payment due dates

We’ll send you a monthly invoice letting you know how much we’ll deduct from your automatic payment method. We’ll only send an invoice when you have a balance of more than £1.00.

We process invoices on either the 15th or the last day of the month, depending on when you created your selling account, and your payment is due by your next invoice date. You can check your account balance at any time on your Account status page in My eBay.

Late or unpaid fees

Until we receive your payment, you won't be able to list any new items. You may still be charged fees for sales from open listings, or monthly Shop or tool subscriptions, though, so make sure you make the payment as quickly as possible.  

If you don’t pay your selling fees, we may suspend your account. We’ll send reminders and warnings first, but if you continue not to pay, we reserve the right to refer your account to a debt collection agency. This agency will charge you an additional fee for collecting any unpaid fees, depending on how much you owe.
