High-Volume Listing Fee FAQ

Which ASINs count towards the High-Volume Listing Fee?

The High-Volume Listing Fee is charged on non-media ASINs for which:

  • you have an active offer,
  • the ASIN was created more than 12 months ago,
  • and the ASIN has not had a sale in the past 12 months.

As an allowance, your first 100,000 ASINs that meet these criteria will not be charged the High-Volume Listing Fee.

Can you give me examples of how the fee is calculated?

Let’s say you have a maximum of 99,000 eligible ASINs in a given month. Your High-Volume Listing Fee would be $0, since you have not exceeded your free allowance of 100,000 eligible ASINs.

On the other hand, if you have maximum of 300,000 eligible ASINs, you will be charged $1,000. It is calculated as $0.005 on the 200,000 ASINs over the free allowance.

Where can I view a list of ASINs that satisfy the criteria for the fee for the current month?

You can view a list of your current ASINs that satisfy the criteria for the fee by going to the Inventory tab in Seller Central, selecting Inventory Reports, and then selecting High Volume Listings Report from the drop-down menu on the page.

If I remove active offers before the end of the month, will I be charged for ASINs associated with those offers for the month?

Yes. We charge the High-Volume Listing Fee on the maximum number of eligible ASINs during the calendar month.

For example, if during a month you had active offers on 300,000 eligible ASINs on December 15, and then removed offers on 200,000 eligible ASINs on December 16, you would be charged a fee of $1,000, calculated as $0.005 on the 200,000 ASINs that are above your free allowance of 100,000 eligible ASINs.

I was not aware of this fee. Can I get a refund for the most recent charge?

No, all fees are charged as applicable. This fee has been charged since August 01, 2016, and has been disclosed on the Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule since that date.

If an eligible ASIN had an order that was then canceled, will the ASIN be charged the fee?

Yes, the ASIN is still eligible for the fee since a canceled order does not qualify as a sale. To qualify as a sale, the ASIN must be shipped to a buyer.

My account was blocked or suspended. Will I still be charged the fee?

No, you will not be charged the fee for any period during which your account was blocked or suspended.
