Selling fees

When your product sells, Amazon collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the price and any shipping, gift-wrap, or other charges). Professional account sellers can set their own shipping rates for books, music, video, and DVD (BMVD) products, including offering free shipping (for more information, go to Activate custom BMVD shipping rates). For Individual account sellers, Amazon shipping rates will apply for BMVD products.

Per-item fees

  • Professional sellers: No per-item fee
  • Individual sellers: $0.99 fee for each item sold

Referral fees

Sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold.

Items in some categories have a per-item minimum referral fee as listed below (for example, sellers pay the greater of the referral fee or the per-item minimum referral fee).

For all products, Amazon deducts the applicable referral fee percentage calculated on the total sales price, excluding any taxes calculated through Amazon tax calculation services. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the buyer, including the item price and any delivery or gift wrapping charges.

Referral fees vary by category, as listed below.

Rental book service fee

The rental book service fee is $5.00 per book rented to a customer.

Closing fees

Sellers also pay a closing fee of $1.80 per item that is sold in the categories of Books, DVD, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, Video Game Consoles, and Video Game Accessories.

High-volume listing fee

We charge a monthly high-volume listing fee of $0.001 per eligible SKU to cover our system costs associated with cataloging and maintaining large numbers of SKUs on Amazon.com.

To help you grow the selection of products you offer on Amazon, we waive the high-volume listing fee for the first 1.5 million SKUs. All SKUs across all product categories, irrespective of creation date or sales history, will be counted towards the fee. We apply a listing fee of $0.001 for each SKU per month on the SKUs in excess of the initial 1.5 million. We apply the fee to your highest number of eligible SKUs from the fifth day through the thirty-first day of the month.

For example, if you offer 1.6 million SKUs in December 2020, we will charge you a fee of $100 for the month of December, calculated as $0.001 on the 100,000 SKUs that were above your free allowance of 1.5 million SKUs. You can view the number of eligible SKUs 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. The fee will be calculated and charged monthly, and will be displayed in the next month's statement.

Refund administration fee

If you refund a customer for an order for which you have already received payment, Amazon will refund you the amount of the referral fee you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable refund administration fee, which is the lesser of $5.00 or 20% of the applicable referral fee.

For example, if you refund a customer the $10.00 total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% referral fee, your refund administration fee will be $0.30 ($10.00 x 15% referral fee = $1.50).
