Double-trouble: eBay Encourages the Removal of Second Product Categories

eBay has recently announced that if items are listed in two categories, the higher of the two values will be charged.

Even though sellers have a good chance of reaching more buyers if they list in multiple categories, eBay are encouraging sellers to list only in the category most relevant to their product so that buyers can find items more easily.

This means that if you’ve listed an item in both the Music category (which has an 8% fee) and the Musical Instruments category (which has a 9% final value fee), when it sells you will be charged the higher 9% final value fee.
