In Singapore you don’t need to pay for Insertion Fees or Final Value Fees on the Auction and Fixed Price formats. However, you will have to pay a Final Value Fee in case your item sells.
So after selling an item, you will pay:

Some Optional Features can help increase the odds of a sale. All the features are not subject to GST.

Revenue = Sales x Average Price of Service or Sales Price
Profit is what’s left of your revenue once you deduct all the business expenses. The easiest way to calculate profit per each item is to use the following profit formula:
Profit = Price – Cost
