How do fees work in the ETX Store?
Joining and adding your products to the ETX Store is free. There is one basic selling fee: a combined transaction and a payment processing fee of 10% of the total price of the item you are selling (including shipping). As an example, if you list an item for $5, when it sells you will pay a fee of $0.50 and will receive $4.50 for the sale.
Are there any additional fees or hidden fees?
Nope! Unlike other platforms we don’t charge you to list your items and they never expire. You only pay the 10% of the total selling price (including shipping) when an item sells.
