Edit Fees

This section contains settings which control how much sellers will be charged to list items and add various listing enhancements.

Pay to Proceed - When checked fee payments from sellers will be required up front to post new listings or perform other actions which require a fee.

Post Listing Fee - One or more flat fee tiers can be defined to specify the cost a user pays to post a listing.  The fee is based on the listing's "Price" or "Starting Bid", as applicable.

Example:
With the Post Listing fee tiers set to the following values...

$10.00 = $.10

$100.00 = $.90

$1000.00 = $9.00

$999,999,999,999.00 = $90.00

If an item is posted with a starting price of $125.00 the Post Listing fee is calculated as follows:

($.10) + ($.90) + ($9.00) = $10.00 post fee

Final Sale Fee - One or more percent fee tiers can be defined to specify the cost a seller pays upon successful completion of a listing (e.g. sale or winning bid).

Example:
With the Final Sale Fee tiers set to the following values...

$25.00 = 5%

$100.00 = 2.5%

$999,999,999,999.00 = 1.0%

If an item sells with a final price of $125.00 the Final Sale fee is calculated as follows:

($25.00 x 5.0%) + ($75.00 x 2.5%) + ( $25.00 x 1.0%) = $3.38 final sale fee
