25% for items ranging from $1,001 to $4,999;
22% for items ranging from $5,000 to $19,999;

18% for items ranging from $50,000 to$74,999;

16% for items ranging from $75,000 to $99,999;
14% for items ranging from $100,000 to $199,999;

and 12% for all items over 200,000.

*Special Rates* applying ONLY to bullion (of all types), is calculated as follows: IslandAuctionAssist's commission for ALL precious metal bullion, in all forms, is 6% of the Final Value of the item.

(The above stated fees will be deducted from Seller's profits, once the item sells and the buyer's payment has cleared.)

**For business clients, as well as galleries, special discounted rates apply** If an item from such a client sells, IslandAuctionAssist will pay both the eBay Final Value Fee (or other sites' equivalent final price selling charge), as well as the PayPal payment processing fee. (Please click HERE to send an e-mail for more information)

For registered vehicles, a Creative Services fee is charged, only if item is sold. Other charges may be due, in the event of a non-sale. (Please click HERE, or on the 'Motor Vehicles' link above for more details)

For real estate, creation of the eBay listing (and setting up your account, if necessary) is free. However, our Creative Services fee (includes authoring of copy, taking of photographs and videos, and compiling the photos and video on CD) is due prior to creating the eBay listing. (Please click HERE, or on the 'Real Estate' link above for more details)

Additionally, the rights to use all photos and MPEG video of your item may be purchased for a nominal fee, for your own use, in the event that the item does not sell, and you wish to sell it on your own. (Please click HERE to send an e-mail for more information)

 

eBay and PayPal Fees:

IslandAuctionAssist's commission will be deducted from the total payment recieved from buyer, once payment is processed. In addition, any standard eBay fees incurred, including insertion fees, final value, listing upgrades, and/or PayPal fees will also be deducted from the Seller's total profits. (business clients and galleries are exempt from eBay final value fees and PayPal fees)

Even if your item does not sell, you must pay the eBay Insertion Fees, as follows:
Starting or Reserve Price Insertion Fee
$0.01 - $0.99..........................$0.15
$1.00 - $9.99..........................$0.35
$10.00 - $24.99......................$0.55
$25.00 - $49.99......................$1.00
$50.00 - $199.99....................$2.00
$200.00 - $499.99..................$3.00
$500.00 or more.....................$4.00

 

For auctions with a 'Reserve Price', the item will not sell until the bid price meets or exceeds the reserve. Reserve Fees are only due if a listing had a Reserve Price set, and the item fails to sell. If the item sells, eBay waives this fee entirely.


Reserve Price Fees:


$0.01 – $49.99..............................................$1.00
$50.00 – $199.99..........................................$2.00
$200.00 and up.............................................1% of Reserve Price (up to $50)

 

Buy It Now fees are charged when a Buy-It-Now option is selected by the seller. The fee schedule is as follows:

Buy It Now Price Fee
$0.01 –$9.99...............................$0.05
$10.00 –$24.99...........................$0.10
$25.00 –$49.99...........................$0.20
$50.00 or more...........................$0.25

The Insertion Fee for Multiple Item Auction (Dutch Auction) and Fixed Price listings is based upon the opening value of your items. The opening value is the starting or the fixed item price multiplied by the quantity of your items. The maximum Insertion Fee for any Multiple Item Listing is $4.80.

The Final Value Fee for a Multiple Item Auction is determined by taking the Final Value Fee of the lowest successful bid and multiplying it by the number of items sold. The Final Value Fee for a Multiple Item Fixed Price listing is calculated per item sold, based on the final sale price of the item.

Select Business & Industrial* capital equipment categories have the following fees:

Business & Industrial Capital Equipment Category Specific Fees
Insertion Fees...........$20.00

*If you re-list the item for the same, or lower, starting price, you will not be charged a second insertion fee if, and only if, that item sells the second time it is listed. If the item does not sell, both the first and second insertion fees are due.


PayPal Fees

Besides the eBay fees, PayPal fees MAY apply, billed at a rate of 1.9% to 2.9%. (business clients and galleries are exempt from PayPal fees)

(You may request that buyers refrain from using PayPal as a method of payment, to avoid extra charges. Be forewarned: This will significantly decrease the number of viable bidders, as many rely on PayPal, and so we will usually not suggest this. However, we will always honor our clients' wishes, and setting an individual eBay listing to accept only certain payment method is perfectly acceptable.)

These fees apply to the following: payments funded by PayPal Balance, PayPal Instant Transfer or PayPal e-Check, Credit Card, Debit Card or Buyer Credit.
