eBay Rules and Fees

First of all, I must warn you that not every type of product can be sold on eBay — I recommend that you check the list of prohibited and restricted items on the company’s website. Failure to comply with the rules can result in account suspension or even permanent ban.

Last but not least, when a purchase is completed the site also receives 10% of the total sale amount, with a maximum monthly fee of US$750.

How to sell a product on eBay

  • Open your browser and go to;
  • Click on “Sign in” in the top left corner and login with your account;
  • When the main page reloads, click on “Sell” at the top of the screen;
  • Enter the name of the product you want to sell and click on “Get started”;
  • eBay will display a list of similar products to ease the ad creation process, but if you want to build it from scratch, click “Continue without selecting a product”;
  • Fill in all the information requested by the platform, such as ad title, price, specifications (in the case of a mobile phone) and also send some photos of the product;
  • Once that’s done, scroll down and click on “List item” to put your ad online — you can also click on “Preview” to preview it before publishing or click on “Save as draft” to save it as a draft.

Okay, now you know how to sell on eBay. Using the platform, your products will have more visibility and the possibility of completing a sale will be even greater.
