Wanted: a free auction fee calculator

Like many eBay sellers, we searched for a good free auction fee calculator, but found none that really worked or were truly “no strings attached”. So, with the help of some friends, we created our own free auction fee calculator from scratch that works with all flavors of Windows, Mac, WebTV, Linux, and *nix operating systems.

International eBay fee calculator

Requests started flooding in from international eBay sellers asking us to create free eBay fee calculators for their domestic eBay sites. So we built free eBay fee calculators for the various international English-speaking markets including: Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, and Australia.

We quickly followed up with localized versions for major European markets including: Germany, France, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy. Additional free auction calculators for such popular auctions sites as Ricardo, QXL, Aucland and Trademe New Zealand are also available with many more planned. Check back for even more free auction fee calculators and online auction tools.

International eBay fee tables

We have also included some handy eBay fees tables comparing eBay fees between the different international eBay sites so international eBay sellers can find the cheapest locale to list their items since fee structures vary quite markedly between various eBay sites.

PayPal Fees Calculator

Every eBay fee calculator includes a useful feature for online payments - an integrated PayPal Fees Calculator, so you how much you’ll actually receive after PayPal commissions are deducted. Each PayPal Fees Calculator handles all applicable rates for both domestic and international sales.
