What is a classified ad

How does eBay classifieds work?

If you want to sell or buy classified ads on eBay, you must first register.

However, registration is free and only takes place by confirming your email address.

  • Does eBay classifieds cost anything if I sell or buy something?

Basically there are no sales commissions, neither for private sellers nor for commercial dealers. The duration of an advertisement is 60 days and can be extended, deleted or deactivated by the provider during this time. An extension is also free of charge.

We offer you additional options for a fee. For example, you can use opportunities to promote your ad. These are of course not mandatory. In addition, in some categories there are restrictions on how many ads you can post. So falls z. For example, in the "Real Estate" or "Car, Bike & Boat" category, a renewal fee is charged if you have already placed more than two advertisements.

  • How does it work with buying?

If you are interested in an article, just call the provider if a phone number is given. Otherwise, you can simply write to him via our message system.

Once you have agreed on a price, you can in many cases use our secure payment system and benefit from our buyer protection. You can find all information about this here. There is a fee for protection through our buyer protection, which will be displayed to you accordingly. Or you can pay when you pick it up.

  • Can I also pay for the item here by bank transfer or PayPal?

To be on the safe side, we advise you to use the "Pay securely" function. This is provided by our partner Online Payment Platform (OPP) and protects you and the seller. You can find all information here.

We advise against making a transfer. Payment via other payment services such as PayPal is also not automatically secured.

Note: Auctions cannot be placed on eBay classified ads.
