You will also be charged a small percentage based final value fee based on the final selling price of the item, minus shipping costs. Luckily you won’t really have to pay for either of these when you are an educated eBay seller and know to factor the fees into your auction price. This allows you to pay eBay for their marketing services and still take your profit.
