If this is your first listing with OpenSea, sellers must pay two transaction gas fees to setup their account. This is a one time fee that you will not pay moving forward.
Sellers do not have to pay gas fees to "mint" each individual item until the item is sold. This is known as lazy minting, which is when an NFT is minted once it's sold (rather than minted upon listing). Click here to learn more about lazy minting.
