# Just listed my item but its not showing up!

1. So I've listed a item on ebay about 20 mins ago....
and when I do a search to see how it looks I cannot find it! (I've request to have the gallery picture also) and I don't see it at all

Does it take a couple hours before it officially shows up when users attempt to search for it?

Thanks guys for your help. I barely ever use Ebay (only when Im desparate) hehe.. So I'm Cluelessss!!!

2. It takes a while--particularly for some reason with handbags.

3. I listed a bag yesterday and it took a little over 6 hours for it to show up in search...very frustrating...

4. Yes, same with me. I listed a bag last Sunday and it took more than six hours too.

5. yeah, Ebay has been having issues lately and it takes a while for most items to show up. I listed some Lacoste polos the other day and it took 4 hours for all 3 to pop up.

6. Ah gotcha~! thanks guys

7. Btw so they take 3% of the remaining value (after 30\$) if an item sells right?

Its somewhat confusing for me because I'm so bad in math

8. Actually it's 5.25% of the first \$25 of the listing value, plus 3% of the difference between the listing value and the sale value. (This is for items that sell for \$25.01 up to \$1000.)

So, let's say you list a bag for \$75 and it ends up selling for \$100. The final value fee is calculated like this:

5.25% of the first \$25 = \$1.31, plus
3.00% of the remainder (\$100 - \$75 = \$25) = \$0.75, so
Total FVF = \$1.31 + \$0.75 = \$2.06

But don't worry, eBay will calculate all this for you
