Amazon Handmade: Referral fees

Handmade Makers pay a referral fee on each product sold. The referral fee is either a flat percentage rate or a per-item minimum fee, whichever is greater. They do not pay both. This fee is in addition to other fees (like FBA or shipping charges). Therefore, the overall fee may be higher than the percentage listed below.

The flat percentage fee is based on the total amount paid by the buyer including the item price and any shipping or gift-wrap charges, but excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax calculation services.
