How eBay Plus can save you heaps on shipping fees
What you'll pay, what it includes and how to make the most of eBay's subscription service.

Launched in May 2018, eBay Plus is a subscription service that offers discounted delivery and other perks to Australian eBay shoppers.
Here's what you get in return for the $49 annual fee:
- Free delivery. Delivery is included on all eBay Plus purchases, which covers more than 15 million products. Major retailers who are participating in eBay Plus include Myer, Target and Chemist Warehouse. Coles offers free delivery if you spend $49 or more. Items that are included will feature an eBay Plus logo, and you can filter your searches to only include eBay Plus products.
- Free returns. As well as free shipping, returns are free on all eBay Plus purchases..
- Exclusive deals. Get access to special deals and discounts only available to eBay Plus members. Some examples of offers include up to 60% off on popular items and early access to new products. See more eBay deals here.
- Premium customer service. You get access to a dedicated customer support team.
Shipping fees can be a major hassle when buying online. The average online shopper in Australia spends $71 per year on shipping and about 1 in 10 of us are actually spending in excess of $200, eBay research suggests.
The $49 price tag makes eBay's subscription a little cheaper than the similar Amazon Prime service. That said, Prime also includes streaming TV and music, so it's not a direct comparison. Which one you choose is likely to depend on your existing shopping habits.
You can test out eBay Plus for free with a 90-day trial.
