If you end an auction early and buyers have already placed bids, you may be charged a fee.
This fee is the same as a final value fee, based on the item price when you ended the auction.
You won’t pay a fee if you cancel your auction within the first 24 hours of listing your item, or if we have to end your auction.
Do you get charged for ending an eBay auction early?

What happens if I cancel eBay auction?
