Fees on unsold listings?

Hi, this seems basic but the seller fees do not seem clear to me.  If I list an item with a reserve, and the item isn't sold as the reserve isn't met, am I charged anything?

 

Many thanks

Yes you are  charged for using the reserve which is an advanced listing upgrade and not included in free listings. Charged at 4% of the reserve price, there is a warning next to the reserve box you fill in, and the fee is displayed at the bottom of the listing form before you click to  "list with displayed fees".  It's a listing fee, not a selling fee.

 

Reserves are a waste of money.  Just start auctions at the lowest price you would be willing to accept.  No one can bid below your starting price.

 

There is a lnk to the full fee structure on the left of your selling page, under the heading of shortcuts.

Only the basic 35p listing is free, if you add extras like reserves, you the pay the fee as soon as item is listed & is non refundable.

Reserves are expensive, just start auction or BIN at minimum you will sell for.
