A seller is changed a Final Value Fee (FVF) when the item is sold, ends with a winning bid, or is purchased. This fee applies whether or not the sale is completed with the buyer and is generated before the buyer makes a payment.
The FVF is calculated using a percentage. This percentage is based on whether the seller has a Store subscription or not. If a seller does have a Store subscription, the FVF is calculated based on the level of that plan. For complete information about selling fees and eBay Store subscription plans, see the Fee Center Home Page
The Final Value Fee for each order line item is returned by GetSellerTransactions
, and GetOrderTransactions
, regardless of the checkout status.
If a seller requests a Final Value Fee credit, the value of Transaction.FinalValueFee
will not change if a credit is issued. The credit only appears in the seller's account data.
See the Selling fees
help page for more information about how Final Value Fees are calculated.
