Selecting, Changing or Removing an Automatic Payment Method

Setting up an automatic payment method is a convenient way to pay your seller fees. You may change your automatic payment method at any time.

Credits on your account

If you have any credits on your account, they will be applied to your payment for each invoice. If you don’t want to apply your credits to your payment, you can change your seller billing preferences in My eBay.  With this change, any credits applied to your account after we create an invoice will apply to next month's invoice amount. This setting does not affect payments, which will always apply to your payment deduction amount.For information on payment requirements, late fees, and payment schedules, see Your payment due date.

To learn about one-time payments, see Making a one-time payment.

Setting up an automatic payment method

When you start selling on eBay, you need to select an automatic payment method for any seller fees you may be charged. If you are selling internationally, you need to become PayPal verified, and select an automatic payment method at another time.

You have a choice of one automatic payment method:

To set up an automatic payment method, follow the same steps as Updating your automatic payment method.

Paying by credit card

You can have eBay automatically charge your selling fees to a credit card. eBay accepts the following cards if you are billed in Singapore dollars, Ringgit or Pesos (depending on which site you are registered on):

  • Visa

  • MasterCard

Note: Your credit card will normally be charged 5 to 7 days after you receive your invoice.

You can update the credit card on file for automatic payments at any time. To ensure that the new information is used for an invoice payment, be sure to update the credit card before the end of your billing cycle (either the end of the month or the 15th of the month).

To remove a credit card from your account, see Removing a payment method from your account on this page.

Changing your payment method
