What fees will I pay for selling on Reverb?

Quick answer

There are two main fees associated with every Reverb transaction:

Additional fees may include Bump Fees , shipping label fees, or cross border fees.

Reverb Selling Fee

There is a 5% selling fee for every item sold on Reverb. There are no fees for creating a new listing or removing a listing if it has not sold. This fee is assessed off of the total sale amount (including shipping).

Payment Processing Fee

Regardless of the buyer's payment method used to purchase, all Reverb orders will incur this payment processing fee. 

For both Reverb Payments and PayPal orders the payment processing fee is calculated on the full order amount (including the tax amount), as this payment processing service is needed to complete the entire online transaction.

When do I pay the fees?

With Reverb Payments, the above fees are all deducted directly from the payout, eliminating month-end charges and streamlining your billing process. If for some reason these fees cannot be deducted from your payout, they are added to your month-end statement.

You can always check the Earnings page in your Reverb account for a breakdown of exactly what was withheld from each of your payouts and why. 

Additional shipping labels purchased from Reverb are always billed to your statement.

Cross-Border Fees

International transactions may incur an additional 1% cross-border processing fee:

  • Transactions within the European Economic Area (EEA) are considered domestic and will not incur a cross-border fee.
  • PayPal charges up to 4.4% for international transactions.
  • If you choose to list your item in a different currency than you receive your Reverb Payments payout, a 2.5% currency conversion fee will be assessed on the subtotal of your payout, after your regular payment processing fees.

Applicable taxes on fees

Depending on your business status and location, Reverb may be required to apply value-added tax (VAT) on the fees charged to sellers and remit it to the relevant tax authority. Some countries may refer to VAT as Goods and Services Tax (GST) or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). VAT, GST, HST, and any local sales tax are collectively referred to as VAT.
