For answers to common questions about Professional selling plan fees, go to Monthly subscription fee.

If you want to stop selling for a period of time (for example, if you can't fulfill orders for any reason, such as family emergency, inclement weather, going on a vacation, and so on), you can temporarily suspend your Professional or Individual selling plan account. For more information, go to Listing status.

If you decide to close your account rather than upgrading or downgrading your selling plan, review guidelines on the Close your seller account page.
