In the Professional selling plan, you are charged a non-refundable monthly subscription fee when you have active listings, regardless of whether you sell anything in a particular month. You do not pay a per-item fee when an item sells. All other fees are charged as applicable.
The Professional selling plan gives you access to inventory tools to upload batch files and manage your orders through feeds and reports. These tools are beneficial to most medium- to large-size businesses.

In the Individual selling plan, you are charged a non-refundable fixed closing fee every time you sell an item. You do not pay a monthly subscription fee. All other fees are charged as applicable.
