Shipping your things to valets is free.
If your item sells, the buyer pays to have the item shipped to them.
If an item doesn’t sell, it’s returned to you for free.
How do valets price items?
Valets research items like yours on eBay, looking at similar items that sold within the last 90 days, and price items according to this research. Items are for sale for up to 60 days. If your item doesn’t sell, valets reduce the price and relist it.
Can I track the sale of my items?
If your items are listed on eBay, you’ll get a confirmation email with a link to the listings.
When do I get paid?
You’ll be paid for each item after it sells. Valet will pay you within 2 business days after the buyer has paid for the item. All payments are through PayPal.
Here’s how it works:
Valets receive your things about 5 business days after you mail them in or drop them off.
Valets list your items for sale within 2 business days.
Your items are for sale on eBay for up to 60 days.
You receive a payment within 2 business days of each item selling.
Unsold and ineligible items are returned to you within 4 business days after all items have sold or been for sale for 60 days.
Valets make every effort to meet these timeframes, but some situations, like extreme weather or unexpected volume, may cause delays. If you have questions, call eBay Customer Service (1-855-USE-EBAY).
Is there a fee?
Fees are deducted from the sale price of your items.
Sale price Percent you earn / valet fee
Less than $50 60% / 40%
$50–$200 70% / 30%
More than $200 80% / 20%
