Resellers rejoice: eBay have scrapped fees for sneaker listings. Footwear sold in the ‘Athletic Shoes’ category will have listing and selling fees waived, provided the item itself sells for over $100. This threshold excludes any sales tax, shipping, and handling costs.
However, this change only applies to North American eBay sellers for now. Sorry, rest of the world! Native marketplaces like StockX and Klekt have undoubtedly gained market share on eBay, which was once the powerhouse of the secondary sneaker cycle. Given hype sneakers typically fetch well in excess of $100, the gains may be rather lucrative for sellers.
