Just got this awesome email from Amazon.
We are writing to notify you of a change to how we will calculate the monthly High-Volume Listing Fee. To give you time to plan, this change will not take effect until August 1, 2016.
- How will the new High-Volume Listing Fee work?
Starting August 1, 2016, we will identify non-media ASINs where: (i) you have an active offer, (ii) the ASIN was created more than 12 months ago, and (iii) the ASIN has not had a sale from any seller in the past 12 months. Your first 100,000 ASINs that meet these criteria will not be charged the High-Volume Listing Fee. For each additional ASIN (above the first 100,000) that meets these criteria, you will be charged a monthly High-Volume Listing Fee of $0.005 per ASIN. The High-Volume Listing Fee will be charged monthly and will be applied to your highest number of applicable ASINs above 100,000 at any time during that month.
- Can you show me an example of how the High-Volume Listing Fee is calculated?
If during a month, you had active offers on 300,000 non-media ASINs that have not had a sale by any seller in the previous 12 months and have been listed on Amazon for at least 12 months, the fee applied for that month would be $1,000. This is calculated as 300,000 minus the 100,000 that are not charged this fee, which equals 200,000 ASINs that would be charged $0.005 each.
- How frequently does Amazon charge the High-Volume Listing Fee?
The fee will be calculated monthly and shown in the monthly statement.
- Where can I find additional information about selling fees?
