How much i should pay for an ebay item that i purchased?

Find out how much you need to pay for your item:

  • In the listing
  • In My eBay
  • In the confirmation email sent by eBay
  • In the invoice sent by the seller
After you win an item, use the Pay Now button to pay your seller. Once you win an item, the Pay Now button appears:
  • in the listing
  • in My eBay
  • in your confirmation email
When you click the Pay Now button,your payment details will usually be automatically calculated for you.These details will match the shipping and handling, tax, and multiplepurchase discounts in the listing below the item description.



If the payment details aren’t available, or the totals don’t seem accurate, here's what to do:
  1. Reviewthe item description and any emails you've received from the seller. Ifthe seller specified shipping costs in the item description or sent youshipping costs by email, you can manually enter this information on theReview Your Purchase page after you click the Pay Now button.
  2. If you still don't have the information you need, click the Request total from sellerlink next to the seller's user ID. After you request the total, theseller can send you a new invoice that includes the correct paymentinformation.
  3. When the seller sends your invoice, click the Pay Now button in the invoice to see your updated total.

Have my invoice but need help in understanding how to pay ebay. Hav


You can pay for items on eBay using PayPal, credit cards, or debit cards. Other ways to pay include gift cards, coupons, eBay Bucks, and more. Before you bid or buy, check the listing to see which payment methods the seller accepts.
Once you've won an auction-style listing or bought an item at a fixed-price using Buy It Now, you can pay for your order.
When you check out and pay, make sure to verify or change your shipping details. If your PayPal account is linked with your eBay account, you'll just confirm and pay. If it's not linked or if you don't have a PayPal account, you can select another payment method, such as a credit or debit card. You'll then confirm your order details and pay through PayPal guest checkout.
You'll get an email letting you know your payment was received and when your item will be shipped.
To speed things up in checkout, you can:
  • Save your payment details
  • Pay with PayPal every time

i sent a postal order on payment for an item, iv not recieved the item and the seller is being horrible and wont help. they have accused me of lying about paying. i sent the payment to the address they gave me and confirmed the method of payment with them personaly by email before sending. iv offered to re send payment by there choice of payment but they being horrible and im out of pocket as well as not got my purchase.


Did you send the postal order registered post, where a signature is required on receipt?

You basically have no proof of posting it otherwise, it could be lost in the post.

If you sent it recorded delivery and it was signed for, then you could get the police involved.

I would open a case with ebay in case they have had complaints from buyers with this seller before. If you get the police involved, give ebay the incident number as it helps them with their enquiries.

I don't know how to pay through paypal they ask me the email address or the phone number of the seller I need to pay for one Matrox DualHead2Go Model D2G-A2A Dual VGA Adapter for 49.99 and Paypal tells me ebay.com is not a valid email address Please help


Hi carla410,

Depending on whether or not the seller uses eBay checkout, the steps to complete payment are different. If your seller does not use eBay checkout, they will send you an invoice or other payment instructions to help you complete your purchase.

To pay for an item when the seller uses eBay checkout:

1. Link your PayPal and eBay accounts, if you haven't already done so.

2. After you've won an item, click the Pay Now button. You can find this button in the listing, in the Purchase History section of My eBay, and in the confirmation email that you receive from us.

3. Check your shipping address. If any information is incorrect, click the Change shipping address link to update it. (The seller may require a credit card billing address registered with PayPal, sometimes called a confirmed address.)

4. Confirm the order details, including shipping and taxes. Click the Continue button. (If you have questions about the total cost, click the Request total from seller link.)

5. Select PayPal as the payment method.

6. Enter your PayPal log in information. If you don't already have a PayPal account, you can sign up.

7. Make sure that your shipping details, payment method, and order details are correct.

8. Click the Confirm Your Payment button to complete your purchase.


To link your PayPal and eBay accounts:

1. Click My eBay at the top of most eBay pages.

2. Click the Account tab.

3. Click the "PayPal Account" link on the left side of the page.

4. Click the Link My PayPal Account button.

5. You'll be asked to log into PayPal to finish linking your accounts.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I listed a blue vase, I have two low bids right now, my listing was under auction. Now I have buyers who want me to sell them the item under Buy Now, which I did not place a buy now price when I listed. I told them both because I have a bidder, I cannot go back and set a Buy now price? Am I correct about this? And can I place a reserve on this item after the fact? Please help me.

Hi there!

It seems that it's been a month since you sent the email here on Fixya but I will help you on how you can do this on your future listings.
If your item has already bids you can no longer edit or revise but you can end the listing if there are still more than 12 hours left before it ends. you just need to cancel the bids first and end it. then you can relist the item as a fixed price listing depending on the price that the buyers like to pay for it.
the reserve price only works for auction and you need to put it before you list the item.

Here's how you can end your listing early:

1. Go to: http://pages.ebay.com/help/sell/end_early.html
2. Click the "End My Listing Early form" link. You may need to sign in.
3. Enter your Item number, and click the "Continue" button.
4. If there were no bids on your item, go to Step 6.


5. If there are bids on your item, choose either "Cancel bids and end listing early" or "Sell item to high bidder(s) and end listing early."
6. Select the reason that you're ending your listing early.
7. Click the "submit" button to end your listing.

Your listing will end and bidders will receive an email explaining that their bid has been canceled.

Hope this helps you on your future listings. Have a great day!

New Member Registration comes first. You will get confirmation and sales invoices in your email, so make sure your email address is correct and fully functional. Also record your user names and passwords correctly, choosing may be difficult as there are over 120 million users now. Bank or credit card info is necessary.
Be careful if you submit a bid, you should be ready to pay. 3 non-pays and you can be banned.
Be diplomatic, accurate and understanding in byer seller communications, as buyer feedback can damage your ability to sell.
Always pay extra for USPS tracking if you sell something, it is how the Ebay system proves seller compliance. Take your time on the item listing page, notice and try to understand every click box, including auction duration and shipping options, decimal places, quantities etc.. Learn the listing page thoroughly, as mistakes and oversights can cause real financial pain. With practice, eBay can be practical, profitable and fun.
Ebay has the most refined search system around with category, area, price range or item name searches, both current running auctions or finished auctions. Use quotes around item names for exact results, such as "vintage bean slicer". Do your homework and research and communicate promptly. Make sure email messages are authentic by accessing whatever links are offered by typing in your address bar. Clicking on email links can be very dangerous.I have never opened any email attatchment. Ebay and paypal never ask for your user information, they already know it. Tryh to keep a healthy balance in your Paypal account for sufficient problem coverage.
