Getting Started on eBay

Start by creating an eBay account if you haven't already. It's worth noting that you can start selling on eBay as a private seller, and a business account is not mandatory.

Whilst eBay does offer the option to open an eBay shop for an additional monthly fee, it's important to know that it is entirely optional and does not provide any additional visibility on the marketplace, though it does give you access to some additional promotional tools.

Once you've opened your account, you can explore our catalog and start creating listings on eBay.

Understanding the Costs of Selling on eBay

For private sellers, listing on eBay is completely free. You will have an allocation of 1000 free listings per month (or more if you have an eBay Shop). After exceeding this monthly allocation, each new listing created incurs a charge of 35p per listing.

When it comes to fees, eBay simplifies the process. The final value fee consists of 12.8% of the total sale amount, which encompasses the item price, postage, taxes, and any other applicable fees. Additionally, there is a fixed charge of 30p per order.

As a private seller on eBay, there are no monthly fees associated with selling, unless you opt to subscribe and open an eBay shop.

Getting Started on Etsy

Start by creating an Etsy account if you haven't already. You will be granted a free Etsy shop, which you can personalise with your own name, logo, and shop categories, along with a customised link that you can promote on social media platforms.

Once you've opened your account, you can explore our catalog and start creating listings on Etsy.

Understanding the Costs of Selling on Etsy

Each listing you create on Etsy is priced at £0.16p and remains active for four months or until the item is sold. When an item sells, you will be charged a renewal fee (£0.16p) for that particular listing.

Upon selling an item on Etsy, you are subject to a 6.5% transaction fee along with a £0.20p payment processing fee.

Selling on Etsy incurs no monthly fees, unless you choose to subscribe to Etsy Plus, which offers additional tools to help fuel your business growth.

Getting Started on Amazon

Selling on Amazon entails a unique approach compared to other marketplaces. While it involves certain challenges, the potential rewards are immense, considering Amazon's status as the largest and most successful marketplace in the world. Sellers are willing to navigate the required vetting and documentation processes to seize the opportunities Amazon offers.

It's important to note that Amazon primarily caters to business sellers, placing emphasis on legal business registrations such as sole trader or limited company status. If you aspire to sell on the Amazon marketplace, having a registered business, as a sole trader or a limited company is essential.

Understanding the Costs of Selling on Amazon

You can list your products on Amazon for free. However, a monthly subscription fee of £25 + VAT per month is required to maintain your Professional selling status.

Amazon collects a referral fee on each sale, which is a percentage of the total transaction and varies based on the product category. For the types of products that you will find in our catalog, the referral fee generally averages around 16.9%.

Selling on Amazon can be complex, particularly for new sellers. It's crucial to familiarise yourself with the intricacies of the platform.
