Fees for Selling on bidStart
- FREE!$0.01 & Above
Store Items remain listed until they sell, or you manually end them.
Note: A store subscription is required to list store items (see below).
- FREE!$0.01 & Above (First 50 per calendar month)
- 2¢ or FREE! *$0.01 & Above (After 50 per calendar month)
* Sell at least 5% of the non-store items you listed which closed in the last 30 days (updated hourly), and no listing fees apply.
We do this to ensure that you use the correct listing type when creating your item listings. If you're listing items at the price you intend to sell them for (not a low opening bid), or if your items are valued under $1, generally the Store Item format is more appropriate, and will ensure your items have a better chance to sell.
- 1¢ + 8.00% *$0.01 to $49.99
- 5.50%$50.00 to $999.99
- 1.50%$1,000.00 & Above
* For non-store item listings, there is a 5¢ minimum final value fee, if your item sells.
Starting prices, and final value fees are in USD. Additionally, final value fees are inclusive and percentages are rounded up to the nearest cent.
Example: If you sell an item for $75, you will pay 1¢ + 8.00% * on the first $49.99, and 5.50% on the remaining $25.01.
