With regard to your question, you were charged $0.50 insertion fee for the listing with a starting price of $24.00 because according to the table of fee for Auction-style format listings, starting price which ranges from $10.00-$24.99 will be charged $0.50. Now, for your other listing wherein you were charge $20.00 it is possible that it is listed under the Business &amp; Industrial Capital Equipment category.

How to put free listings on eBay

Hi there dear eBay members! I am serverbot an eBay guru and I will share to you my tips and tricks on how to put your items for free on eBay!! Yes, that is correct, for FREE!
First, lets check the newest promotion that eBay has, it is the free insertion fee for auction style listings until January 2011!! Any price, just make sure that you have 4.5 on all of your DSRs and you are qualified for the 100 free listings regardless of starting price. But what if you already used 100 of the free 100 listings? You can use it again on the next month, meaning it refresh every month.

If you already used 100 of it and likes to list more, then you will be charged for the next listing. How to avoid getting charge again and again? Use the Free relist policy, list the item once and if it didn't sell, relist it and DON'T relist it the second time since it will no longer be covered by Free relist. It will only works if your item sells the first time you relist it and you will only get the first insertion fee.
Free relist policy

But what if you made a mistake in your listing and you can no longer edit it or you like it to be Fixed price but you listed it as Auction? How to get credit for it? You need to end the listing within 12 hours since you listed the item and contact eBay for credit. Yes, you can contact eBay and they will credit it for you as long as it's not yet past 12 hours.
eBay phone trick How to end a listing early link
Just ready your item number. If it's your first time to file a cancel transaction case and the buyer declined it accidentally, you can also ask eBay to credit it for you since you can no longer file another case! It can be a one time courtesy credit or an education credit.
How about Overdraft fees?eBay don't charge it, it's your bank. You need to contact your bank so that they can credit it for you but to avoid it, check your funding source in your PayPal account or check your eBay automatic payment method on file.
Lastly, the most devilish trick to get free credits, you just need to contact eBay and ask for credit. It can be a one time courtesy or education credit if you haven't requested one. Dead serious, you can get free listings for doing this. It's mean but it's a trick.
Hope this helps. If you need further tricks on eBay check my other tips and you can ask me for whatever about eBay.

How to create multiple item listings for fixed price on eBay

You can list multiple, identical items in one listing with a fixed price for each item. Buyers can buy whatever quantity they want at that price. In a fixed price listing, you need to sell your items for at least $1 each. To list in fixed price format, you need to do at least one of these things:
-- Establish your proof of identity with ID Verify (
-- If you have a PayPal account, you need to have a feedback score of 15 and accept PayPal in your listing. -- If you don't have a PayPal account, you should be registered on eBay for at least 14 days and have a feedback score of at least 30.
-- If you're selling through a premium or anchor store, you also need to be PayPal Verified ( Here's how it works:
1. When listing your item, select the fixed price tab, enter the Buy It Now price, and then enter the number of items for sale in the quantity field. If you don't see the Fixed Price tab or can't enter a number in the Quantity field, verify that you meet the requirements. 2. Buyers purchase one or more of your items by clicking the Buy It Now button on your listing. They can keep buying your items until they run out or the listing ends. If you have more than 10 of the same item, you can choose to show the quantity available as "more than 10" or show the actual number of items available. To select whether to show the exact number of items:
1. Go to My eBay and sign in.
2. Click the "Account" tab, and then click the "Site Preferences" link on the left.
3. Under Selling Preferences, click the "Show" link. 4. Click the "Edit" link next to "Show the exact quantity of items in your listing if the quantity exceeds 10."
5. Select either:
-- Display "More than 10 available" in your listing (if applicable).
-- Display the exact quantity in your listing.
6. Click "Submit."

In order to place an item on ebay to sell is there a forty cent charge for each item, no matter what the item your selling is?

You are partially correct in your understanding: there is a fee just for listing an item to sell. It is not, however, a flat 40 cents. eBay uses a graded insertion (listing) fee system that depends on the starting bid of the item you list. Below is a summary of the tiers, with the starting bid range on the left, and the insertion fee on the right:

$0.01 - $0.99: $0.10
$1.00 - $9.99: $0.25
$10.00 - $24.99: $0.50
$25.00 - $49.99: $0.75
$50.00 - $199.99: $1.00
$200.00 or more: $2.00

Listing upgrades, such as bold titles and additional title lines, will incur additional fees.

eBay currently waives the insertion fee for user's first 50 listings per month. This policy may not be applicable to all sellers, however, and it does not encompass listing upgrades such as those listed above.

I have an account with Ebay and I am being charged every month $15.99, can you tell me what that is for? My account username is lubinum34

When you list an item on eBay, you're charged an insertion fee If the item sells, you're also charged a final value fee. The basic cost of selling an item is the insertion fee plus the final value fee.

The basic fee structure depends on the type of listing-auction-style or fixed price format-you use.

I am a first time ebay seller, and when I set up the sell, I kept making changes, at the end before I clicked on to pay, the page closed. I went back in and set up a new sell item, but I am concerned that...

Unless you push the button EDIT changes, your item will remain the same without any changes. If you do double list, just contact EBay's help centre, I'm sure they will cancel one of the listings.

My first sale attempt

that is not normal if you listed your item properly.. you need to check if the item is in your active selling folder. here's how

1. log in to your ebay account then click the my ebay tab located on the upper right hand corner of he page
2. then on the left side click active under Sell, if your item is listed then you will be able to see it here. if not, it means that your item is not listed.
3. if the item is not listed, you can still retrieve it (if its saved as draft) so that you can finish listing your item.

here;s how

1. log in to your account then click the Sell tab located on the upper right hand corner of the page.
2. then click the big blue start selling button in the middle of the page
3. then you will see the select a category page and on the right side you will see the finish your draft listing portion, just click the complete button below and you will be redirected to the sell your item form. complete it and list it.

you will receive a congratulations page if you list your item successfully, to check if your item is listed, do the first set of steps i provided above.

if you don't have an automatic payment method on file, you will not be able to list and item, make sure that you have one...

hope this helps... please dont forget to rate! thanks!!
