Amazon Handmade Terms and Conditions

Amazon Handmade is a store with handcrafted products, made by Handmade Sellers ("Makers"). Amazon uses an application process to add new Makers to the Handmade category to ensure customers are able to buy with confidence.

The following terms supplement the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement and govern your participation in the Amazon Handmade program.

Amazon reserves the right to remove selling privileges at any point and at its sole discretion. We also reserve the right to update these terms.

Amazon Handmade Product Eligibility

You can only list products in the Handmade store that meet eligibility requirements described in the Amazon Handmade Product Eligibility section of Welcome to Handmade.

Fees

Enrollment in and approval to sell in the Amazon Handmade store comes with a waiver of the Professional selling fee ($39.99) for Makers that are approved to sell in the Handmade category.

Makers will pay a referral fee on each item sold. See Amazon Handmade: Referral Fees for more details on referral fees

Protecting Handmade Integrity

Amazon reserves the right, in its sole discretion, conduct a review of products and the Makers listing them in the Handmade store. As part of that review, we reserve the right to remove listings and/or Makers that do not comply with Amazon, or Handmade specific guidelines and policies. Any Maker impacted by a removal from Amazon will be notified and in most cases, will have the option to appeal an enforcement decision.

Makers will receive enforcement notifications via Performance Notification in Seller Central and will include details on what is needed by Amazon to conduct an audit, as well as the timeframe in which the Maker will need to provide Amazon with this information.

Makers who repeatedly attempt to circumvent decisions or actions taken by Amazon Handmade, may see their ability to sell in the Handmade store permanently revoked.
