How can I change the payment method?

Set and change your automatic payment method

We'll email you a monthly invoice detailing all of your seller fees. This is where you will find the fees for your offers, all of your sales, and subscriptions. If you've already set up a payment method, you don't need to do anything. The invoice amount will be paid automatically on the due date using the specified payment method (on the 15th or the last day of the month).

Set payment method

  1. Go to your seller account.
  2. Are you looking for Payment methods for seller fees and choose Change Payment Method.
  3. Select your preferred payment method from the drop-down menu.
  4. Enter your information and select to save or Further.

If you would like to pay by direct debit or credit card, please enter your bank or card details. You may need additional identification, depending on your bank. This happens, for example, with an SMS code, a PIN or a password. After you have entered your card details, we will temporarily charge your credit card EUR 1 to ensure that your credit card is available. This is only a temporary charge that will be charged back after verification.

If at least EUR 1 is not available on the credit card, the card will be rejected. If the card is declined during verification, payment, or at any other time, we recommend contacting the credit card company.

If you choose direct debit as the automatic payment method for your eBay fees, we will first check the bank details on file. We will automatically transfer EUR 0.01 to your bank account. Your registration status in My eBay is: "Direct Debit - Direct Debit (Planned)". As soon as we receive confirmation that our transfer has been carried out successfully, the direct debit procedure is set up for your seller account.

Add or update a payment method


To ensure that your current details are used when paying your bill, you should update your account details before the end of your billing cycle (on the 15th or last day of the month).

How to change your automatic payment method

  1. Go to My eBay.
  2. Select in the left column under My eBay account on Personal data.
  3. Under Payment settings you can enter the new information for your bank account or credit card.
  4. Go on Change your automatic payment method now.

How to remove your automatic payment method

The automatic payment method can only be removed if the seller account is logged out.

Of course, if you want to cancel your seller account, you no longer need to specify an automatic payment method for your eBay fees. However, fees may still be charged for currently active eBay offers. Fees for subscriptions that are still active, e.g. for eBay shops, will still be debited. Therefore, remember to cancel all subscriptions when you cancel your seller account. If your balance isn't balanced, you may need to make a one-time payment before you can remove your billing information.

Make a one-time payment

You can make one-off payments to your eBay seller account via PayPal, direct debit or credit card. In any event, payment should be made at least 5 days before the due date.

Since an automatic payment method must also be set, you should make sure that you do not pay twice for a one-time payment.

You can make one-off payments at any time. To do this, proceed as follows:

  1. Go to Seller Account.
  2. Are you looking for Payment methods for seller fees and select the option for single payments out.
  3. Select the payment method you want and enter your payment details.

In the interests of our buyers and sellers, we insist that all fees for eBay accounts that are EUR 1 or more are paid in full each month. If amounts are overdue and you are currently unable to pay your fees, please contact us.
