From 12th March 2009, there's no Insertion Fee if youre a private seller and you list your item in the auction-style format with a starting price of up to 99p (eBay.co.uk) or 1.49 (eBay.ie). Final Value Fee rates are also changing.
Fees for business-registered sellers using the auction-style format will be unchanged.
Pay only when you sell
In 2008 we made it free to include a picture for your listing. Were continuing our commitment to moving the cost of selling on eBay.co.uk and eBay.ie away from front end fees so that the majority of fees are paid only when you successfully sell an item.
