See Collectibles-Promotional Discounts for information on promotional discounts that may be available to sellers on Amazon from third-parties. Amazon is sharing the above listings, and any promotional discounts, solely as a resource to our sellers. If you elect to use the services of, or take advantage of any promotional offers from a third-party authenticator or grading company, you will be contracting directly with that third party, which will be providing services to you at your direction.

Fees for the Sports Collectibles Store

In addition to other fees listed in our fee table, sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold that is listed in the Sports Collectibles category. For items listed in the Sports Collectibles category, Amazon deducts a varying percentage of the total sales price (including any shipping or giftwrap charges) as a referral fee, excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax calculation services.

  • 20% for the portion of the total sales price up to $100
  • 10% for any portion of the total sales price greater than $100 up to $1,000; and
  • 6% for any portion of the total sales price greater than $1,000.

For example, if the total sales price is $500, the referral fee is calculated as follows: $20 (for the first $100 of the total sales price) plus $40 (for the remaining $400 of the total sales price) for a total referral fee of $60.
