ebay: what is a final value fee credit?

June 14th, 2012 2 comments

I listed an item on ebay. But I needed to cancel all bids because the item is no longer for sale.
Someone bidded at the last second.
They declined me request to cancel the transaction
ebay have said to me:
"Cancel transaction case is now closed. You haven’t received a Final Value Fee credit yet."

What does this mean?

In simple term – you wouldn’t get your money back. eBay added that little amount to their profit margin and told you nicely thanks for using eBay and paying them for nothing.

If I adjust my final Ebay sale down by $500, can Ebay reduce the Final Value Fee?

I sold an item on Ebay for $1500 and the buyer and I have decided that the condition was overstated. I would like to return $500 to the buyer, but would also like Ebay to adjust the Final Value Fee based on the newly agreed upon price. Is there a way to report to Ebay the adjusted price so that my Final Value Fee that I am charged is less? If so, where can I do this?

No you can’t do that. the FVF is calculated as the auction’s close. Any refunds you may or may not give are between yourself and the buyer.
