eBay is an online shopping site that's best known for its auctions and consumer to consumer sales. It's also extremely popular for online merchants to use as a sales channel. eBay's available in many different countries.
Anyone can open an eBay account for free. When you have a seller account, there are fees associated with it — for example, listing fees. The costs vary on the price you sell your products for, as well as how long you list them. eBay is a fully ‘open’ marketplace and there are no strict requirements attached to getting a business account. Also, the number of different categories and products that you are able to offer via eBay is almost limitless.
eBay will not charge any listing fees for offers in your default country (where you create your first account and where your warehouse is located).
However, for selling internationally via other eBay portals you may be charged additional listing fees per product. This is depending on the ‘type’ of business account you use and the fees can vary based on the category your product(s) are listed in. More information on fees can be found on eBay’s help pages:
