Selling Fees Will Update on May 22, 2023

Discogs has made significant investments in recent years to ensure compliance with various regulatory programs, including tax support and privacy protection. These efforts have ensured a trusted international marketplace for buying and selling music, but they also come with real costs to provide these valuable services.

After careful consideration, we are updating our selling fee for the first time in over 10 years. The selling fee will change from 8% to 9% on May 22, 2023. The new 9% selling fee applies to both the item and shipping costs. It is still free to list items for sale.

This increase will help us continue to devote resources to maintaining the Discogs Marketplace and develop better tools for collecting, selling, and enjoying music.

What does this mean for sellers?

We understand that any adjustment to fees can be disruptive for sellers. Discogs is here to help you navigate this change. 

  • One of the easiest things you can do to avoid a negative impact on your business’s margins is to increase the price of the items in your inventory by a percentage. See our complete pricing guide, including calculations that illustrate the impact that the new selling fee will have on your prices.
  • Discogs introduced a new inventory management feature that allows you to increase all of the prices on your items for sale at one time. Learn more about this feature and other helpful inventory tools in the pricing guide.
  • You have questions, and Discogs has the answers. Read more about the change and how it affects you in our extensive FAQ. If you have additional questions, you can contact Discogs Support.

What does this mean for buyers?

There’s no immediate effect on buyers. However, you might see different prices in the Marketplace moving forward if sellers decide to adjust their costs.

Ultimately, sellers are in control of pricing and you will continue to find some of the best deals in the Marketplace. You can keep track of an item’s median price by checking the Statistics section on a release page (or the Sales History in the Discogs app).
