How it works

eBay Promoted Listings is a paid for advertising service

  • Select the price (ad rate) you’re willing to pay to promote your selected listings
  • The ad rate is a percentage of the item’s final sale price
  • Anything from 1% to 100%
  • The higher the ad rate, the more highly promoted your listing will be

For example:

  • You’re selling a mobile phone for £200
  • You’ve set an ad rate of 10%
  • You’ll pay £20 if it’s clicked on and sold within 30 days
  • Ad rates only applied to item price and not other fees
