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. For example, if you sell a $15,000 guitar, we limit your transaction fee to only $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.
