We charge no 'insertion' fees. There are two types of fees that may be incurred when you list or sell items
on GunBroker.com. We charge a Final Value Fee that is assessed only if your item ends with a winning bidder.
We offer some Optional Services that can be used to enhance the listing that must be paid for whether or not
the item is sold. If you choose to use any of our Optional Services and the item does not sell it can be
relisted free of charge using the same options.
To create a safe buying / selling environment, sellers must verify their identity with us. Sellers will be
charged a verification fee of $2.00 to go through a detailed security check. This
process is required in order to be able to sell. We reserve the right to deny access to site features if
we are unable to verify your identity.
For any item that is won by one a bidder we assess a final value fee based on the selling price of the item.
A sold item is one that is bid on and won by a bidder in accordance with our User
Agreement. If an item does not sell, no Final Value Fee is assessed. In other words, if you create a basic
listing (one that uses no Optional Services) and the item does not sell you owe us nothing.

Our Optional Services are designed to make your auction listing stand out from the others. The services consist of
priority placements and attention-getting features that help to get more bidders to look at and hopefully bid on
your item. No other print or online classified ad or auction venue offers the package of priority placement and
attention-getting options offered by GunBroker.com.
What's Free - We do not charge any 'insertion' fees for creating a basic listing. Basic
listings are completely free unless the item is won by a bidder (sold items are assessed a
Final Value Fee). When listing an item, the seller can decide
on an item-by-item basis which of our optional services (if any) to use. Our basic listings
are more powerful than the paid listings available on other sites or venues. Sellers can use
HTML to create fancy listings. Sellers can take advantage of our automated picture upload
facility to add pictures to their listings; if fact, we strongly recommend doing so. Basic
listings are can be very effective and they contain the same information as their Showcase
or Featured counterparts.
What's Not Free - We offer some optional services such as icons that appear to the left of the
item in the category page, counters, highlighting, bolding and colored titles. We will also
charge you to upgrade your listing to a Showcase Item or a Featured Item. We charge if you want
to schedule the time an auction begins instead of launching it immediately. And, you will have to
pay a Final Value Fee if the item is won by a bidder.
