Seller Fees

Transaction Fee

As a seller, Reverb charges you 3.5% of the total sale amount (including shipping) after your item has sold.

The minimum fee is $0.50 and the maximum fee is $350. So if you sell a $15,000 guitar, your transaction fee will still only be $350.

Direct Checkout

Reverb offers a convenient built-in payment method called Direct Checkout. The seller fee for Direct Checkout payment processing is $0.25 plus 2.7% of transaction total. For Reverb Preferred Sellers, the fee is $0.25 plus 2.5% of transaction total.

Sellers incur a 1% cross-border fee on all international shipments.


When you accept payments via PayPal, a fee may be deducted from the total amount transferred to your PayPal account. For most sellers this fee is $0.30 plus 2.9%.

Note: This is a fee that PayPal charges for its payment service separate from your Reverb fees.

When am I charged?

Reverb Selling Fee

Reverb seller fees are processed on the 1st of day of the month for all transactions that occurred the previous month.

For example, if one item is sold on April 5 and another on April 22, both transaction fees will be processed on May 1. These fees will be charged to the credit card on file in the billing section of your account profile.

Payment Processing Fee

Reverb’s Direct Checkout and Paypal’s processing fees will be taken out at the time the buyer purchases the item.

For example, an item sells at $100 with free shipping. If Paypal is used, $96.80 goes into the seller's Paypal account. If Direct Checkout is used $97.25 goes to the seller's bank account or Reverb Bucks.

Sellers incur a 2.5% currency conversion fee of the payout subtotal post-payment processing fees on all international shipments.
