Fees
There's no charge to browse, bid on or buy items at Obidz. But you do pay fees to list and sell items.

Note - Fees pay for the right to sell an item(s) on Obidz. You do not purchase any exclusive rights to a Web page on Obidz. Obidz may, in our sole discretion, and without your consent or payment to you, place third party advertisements on any Web page within our site.

Insertion Fees
When you list your item for sale at Obidz, you pay a non-refundable Insertion Fee. Insertion Fees vary by the type of auction you choose:

  • Regular Listings
    The Insertion Fee is based on the opening value or minimum bid for your item. However, Insertion Fees for Non-Binding Bid Categories are on a fixed schedule.

  • Reserve Price Listings
    The Insertion Fee is based upon the reserve price of the item you list for sale. Insertion Fees are non-refundable.

    When you list a Reserve Price Auction, you will also be charged a Reserve Price Auction Fee, which is based upon the reserve price. Reserve Price Auction Fees are fully refundable. At the end of the auction, if your item sells, the Reserve Price Auction Fee is refunded to your account.

  • Dutch Listings
    The Insertion Fee is based upon the opening value or minimum bid of the item you list for sale multiplied by the quantity of items you offer. The maximum insertion fee for any Dutch auction is $200.
