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.
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.
|Sale price||Success fee|
|$1 or less||$0 (No success fee)|
|More than $1||7.9% of sale price (maximum success fee = $249)|
Success fees for in-trade sellers are based on the price of the item sold and the cost of shipping (the ’final sales value’). For more information, please see our blog post.
|Sale price + shipping cost||Success fee|
|$1 or less||$0 (No success fee)|
|More than $1||7.9% of sale price (maximum success fee = $149)|
Top Sellers receive a discount on success fees, some promotional fees, and payment fees.
New Zealand in-trade sellers may become eligible for a Gold Trade Rebate if the sale meets all the specified criteria.
