Seller fee update coming in July:
Fees adjusted to reward low-cost shipping - To pay the lowest fees, consider ways to lower your shipping costs and upgrade to a Premium Store.
We know that online buyers pay attention to the total cost of an item - including shipping - when deciding what and where to buy. That's why, to encourage low-cost shipping, starting July 6 Final Value Fee rates for Store sellers - Fixed Price and Auction-style - will be reduced and then applied to the total amount of the sale - including shipping.
The best way to minimize the impact on your overall fees is to take advantage of the available ways to reduce your shipping costs and charges. Based on your recent selling activity, you can also lower your overall fees by upgrading to a Premium Store.
With a Premium Store, you can list in Fixed Price for just 5¢ plus get the same discounted Insertion Fees for Auction-style.

New eBay Shopping Cart
Online shoppers are accustomed to adding items to a shopping cart - and they're often motivated to buy more. That's why we're introducing the new eBay Shopping Cart that works with both Fixed Price and Auction-style items. Buyers can add items from multiple sellers and pay in one easy checkout - making it easier and more likely for them to buy more. It will become the way to shop on eBay before the 2011 holiday season.
