Hi Guys,
I am currently using ESP and just setting up some listing SKUS in order to be able to list items on eBay Australia & America. I checked the insertion fee for Australia and for one item is it charging me 84 cents.

I currently have an Anchor shop and get free UK listings. Is there a way i can get free listings for the foreign sites due to the shop subscription i currently pay, or do i need to upgrade to a shop on each foreign site?

I have over 15000 items, so to pay to list them on each site will cost me a stupid amount of money.

Any advice, greatly appreciated.

Howdy Steve,

I’m pretty sure that this is eBay giving you the prices back via the eBay API, which does not account for you having an anchor store.

It’s dead easy to confirm though, list one item onto and then check your billing history in eBay for the actual fees paid.

Thanks for the quick response!

I have tried a test listing on and it wanted to charge me the equivalent of £1.20 for what i thought was a simple 30 day listing. Surely that cant be right can it?

I have 15000 items to list and wanted to get them on Australia,America, France, Spain, Germany & Italy.

At £1.20 per go thats going to bankrupt me lol

Spoke to ebay customer support who weren’t very helpful so am hoping someone may be able to shed some more light on this?

If you have an anchor shop on eBay UK then it is free to list items on eBay AU, you also get 2500 free listing for eBay US
