The eBay Fee Calculator Just Got Insanely Better in 2021
Big updates to the eBay Fee Calculator for 2021! In this post, we showcase new features and explain how 3Dsellers’ eBay calculator is so accurate!
Why is it important to pay attention to eBay item pricing?
Your eBay listing price impacts earnings, and earnings impact business growth!
Calculating the right eBay selling price is essential for running a successful eBay business.
You need to know that your sales will be profitable and minimize any loss. To do this, you’ll need to calculate how much your eBay selling costs will affect your bottom line to get an accurate profit estimate.
Is it hard to calculate eBay fees and selling prices?
Pricing eBay listings based on the price you paid for an item + the cost of shipping is relatively easy for most eBay sellers.
However, once considering the fees involved with selling on eBay, a cloud of uncertainty may try and loom over your pricing strategy. 🌦️
For example, these listing settings below will all need to be used to determine your eBay fees and selling costs:
- eBay final value fees,
- different categories,
- listing upgrades,
- eBay Promotion,
- seller status,
- eBay Store Subscription,
- and more.
So just use an eBay calculator, right?
Not to seed that cloud of uncertainty, but when searching for an “eBay fee calculator” online, there are too many options, each with different features and settings that only work for different sellers and items. Many of them also lack eBay settings and fee details needed for accurate pricing and insight.

3Dsellers eBay Fee Calculator does more than just calculate eBay fees.
Included in this supercharged calculator are three powerful ways to calculate a selling price for listings, get insight into eBay fees, and even research competitors.
1 — Calculate a selling price
When the “Calculate my selling price” option is enabled, you can enter the profit you want in the Desired Profit setting. Choose between a margin or fixed amount that you want to collect from the sale.
This setting, combined with item cost and fee settings, provides a very accurate estimate for a perfect selling price to earn the eBay profit you need.
2 — Set your own selling price
Already know the price that you need to sell the item for?
Select the “I’ll set my own selling price” option to reveal the Selling Price setting.
This option provides you insight into a sale by calculating accurate profit and eBay fees.
3 —Search Item ID
Use the “Search Item ID” setting to find the price of any listing on eBay and calculate the eBay fees for selling the same item.
This feature is not just for eBay seller competitor research or checking your own eBay fees, but you can also know if selling the same item as a competitor is profitable for you.
For example, let’s say you want to sell an eBay item that another seller has listed. But you need to know how much to pay for the item so you can sell it for a similar price—and know if the resale will be profitable.
To do this:
- Search the Item ID of the competitor’s listing.
- Then enter your own listing settings.
- Lastly, enter your supplier’s price for the item in the “Item Cost” field.
You can then instantly see if reselling the product from your supplier is profitable on 3Dsellers’ eBay Fee Calculator.
BONUS: eBay Break Even Price
When using the Item Cost setting, a display of a Break Even Price for eBay will appear.
This is the price you could sell your item for, and after selling fees, you will not lose or make any money.
