How Much Does Reverb Charge per Transaction?

Whenever you sell any musical gear on , you'll pay 5 percent of the total transaction amount to Reverb as a fee. This is a commission that Reverb collects in exchange for the services it provides. It is considered compensation for:

  • Using Reverb's online sales platform
  • Using Reverb's payment processing services
  • Access to Reverb's vast market of interested and qualified buyers

Reverb Fees Explained

The 5 percent selling fee that you pay on Reverb is based upon the total transaction amount of each sale including all related shipping costs. This fee will be collected from you only after you've received buyers' payments. For all sales completed on the Reverb platform, there is a minimum selling fee of $0.50 and a maximum selling fee of $500.

Does Reverb Have Hidden Fees?

There are several additional fees and international fees that all Reverb sellers should be aware of. You may be subject to these fees if you use specific Reverb services, sell to international markets, or rely on digital wallets to complete transactions. These fees include:

Reverb Payment Fees

Preferred sellers using the Reverb Payment service will pay an additional 2.5 percent of their transaction totals as well as an additional $0.25.

Reverb Safe Shipping Fees

Depending upon the shipping destination and the item's value, this fee can range between 1.5 percent and 3 percent of the total purchasing price.

Currency Conversion Fees

If listing items in different currencies from the one your Reverb Payments are processed in, you will pay a 2.5 percent currency processing fee.

Cross-Border Fees

For transactions involving buyers who live in different countries, you'll need to pay 1 percent of the transaction total as a cross-border fee.

Digital Wallet Fees

Digital wallets like Affirm and Paypal entail additional, third-party charges of approximately 2.9 percent of transaction totals.

How to Appeal Reverb Fees on Your Own

There is no formal method for appealing Reverb fees. You simply need to contact the company directly and detail your concerns. You can do so by:

  1. Emailing your request for a fee waiver to support@reverb.com
  2. Calling the Reverb customer support line at 1 (888) 726-2728
  3. Using the company's online Help Center

You also have the option of mailing in a request to have your Reverb fees waived to 3345 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago, Illinois, 60657. No matter how you submit your appeal, be sure to have the relevant transaction number on hand, your account details, and the amount of the fee that you're contesting.

Next Steps if You Can't Get Reverb Fees Waived on Your Own

It can take time to get a suitable response to your request to have Reverb fees waived when you call in, email customer support, or deal with customer service representatives over the phone. Like many other online marketplaces, Reverb uses an automated phone answering service that makes it difficult to get in contact with a live person.

If you're already frustrated when calling Reverb, your mood isn't likely to improve as you navigate its automated phone system. Moreover, requests for fee waivers that are mailed in can take weeks to prompt an acceptable response. Using DoNotPay is always the fastest and easiest way to get the job done. It's also the least time-consuming.
