Zero insertion fee listings

If you sell internationally, as a CBT seller, you’ll receive an allocation of zero insertion fee listings every month. These enable you to list items for sale in many categories with no insertion fees, though other fees may still apply. You’ll only pay insertion fees after using up these listings.

If you have a Basic or higher level eBay Store on an eBay site that offers Stores, you'll receive more zero insertion fee listings per month than sellers who don't have an eBay Store subscription.

How it works

You won't be charged an insertion fee if you still have an allotment of zero insertion fee listings available in a given month. However, you'll still need to pay a final value fee when your item sells. You'll also be charged fees for optional listing upgrades and supplemental services if you choose to use them, including:

  • Adding a subtitle
  • Listing your item in two categories
  • Buying and printing shipping labels through eBay

Some things you should be aware of:

  • If you have a Basic, Premium, Anchor, or Enterprise Store, you can only use your zero insertion fee auction-style listings allocation in the following categories:
    • Antiques
    • Art
    • Clothing, Shoes & Accessories
    • Coins & Paper Money
    • Collectibles
    • Dolls & Bears
    • Entertainment Memorabilia
    • Health & Beauty
    • Jewelry & Watches
    • Pottery & Glass
    • Sports Mem, Cards & Fan Shop
    • Stamps
    • Toys & Hobbies
  • The following categories do not qualify for zero insertion fee listings:
    • Real Estate
    • Select Motors categories: Boats, Cars & Trucks, Motorcycles, Other Vehicles & Trailers, and Powersports
    • Select Business & Industrial categories: Heavy Equipment (found in Heavy Equipment, Parts & Attachments), Food Trucks, Trailers & Carts (found in Restaurant & Food Service), Commercial Printing Presses (found in Printing & Graphic Arts)
  • If you don't have a Store subscription, you'll only receive zero insertion fee listings in the country of your registered address. For example, if you have a registered address in the Philippines, you'll only receive zero insertion fee listings on the Philippines site, ebay.ph
  • You can add up to 12 pictures per listing for free
  • All existing selling limits on your account (as well as category and item limits) still apply and may prevent you from creating the maximum number of listings associated with your eBay Store subscription
  • The following count toward your monthly allocation of zero insertion fee listings:
    • Manual and automatically relisted items
    • The original listing and each monthly renewal for Good 'Til Canceled listings
    • Listings that you end early or that we end early
    • Duplicate identical auction-style listings (even if one or more of those listings doesn't immediately appear on eBay)
  • If you create a listing under a conditional zero-insertion-fee-listings promotion and then revise the listing so that it no longer qualifies under the terms of the promotion, you may be charged an insertion fee (even if some of your free allocation remains)

If you have a Basic or higher level eBay Store, you'll receive more zero insertion fee listings per month than sellers who don't have an eBay Store subscription.
