Fees and fee calculator

Marketplace (general items)

For both casual and in-trade sellers, success fees apply to auctions if an item sells. Fees can be refunded if the sale isn’t completed.

High volume listing fees (10c per listing) apply when you go over your listing allowance.

Feel free to contact us about special rates for registered charities.

Casual sellers (not in-trade)

Success fees for casual sellers are based on the price of the item sold.
