While it doesn't cost anything to create an account with OpenSea and start browsing, there are a couple of fees you may pay when you sell NFTs.
Typically, OpenSea receives a 2.5% fee on all secondary sales. For a limited period of time, however, OpenSea is dropping its fee to 0% for the most popular collections.
To help protect users from being misled by inorganic sales volume, OpenSea will receive a fee of up to 0.5% in either of the following scenarios:
- Creator earnings for a collection are set between 0 and less than 0.5%, or
- A collection’s volume and activity are below certain thresholds
The first category applies to all listings and offers created after 3:30 pm ET on February 17, 2023. The second category applies to all listings and offers created after 7 pm ET on February 21, 2023.
Collections that include an on-chain enforcement method may have higher creator earnings, up to 10%. We also enforce creator earnings for collections created using OpenSea’s shared storefront smart contract (the “Create” button on OpenSea).
Creator fees for other EVM chains besides ETH will continue to be enforced per the previously communicated policy, but will be subject to change per market conditions.
When you list an item on Ethereum for the first time, you’ll also need to pay gas. You can learn more in our help guide, What fees do I pay for my first listing?
