eBay Cuts Fees for Some Sellers

Another fee change is coming to eBay. This one is aimed at sellers who occasionally auction off items on the online marketplace.

San Jose, Calif.-based eBay Inc. says users will soon be able to offer up to five items for auction every 30 days without paying fees eBay usually charges to list goods. Listing fees usually run 10 cents to $4, depending on the item.

Users of the site will still have to pay fees for items sold. Under a new fee schedule that applies to no-listing-fee items, sellers pay a flat 8.75 percent of the sale price, with a cap of $20 per item.

The change announced Tuesday takes effect June 16 and does not apply to fixed-price listings. After the five no-fee items, users are subject to standard fees.
