Fee discounts

Referral fee discounts are limited-time offers designed to help you list popular products at competitive prices with convenient shipping to Amazon customers. You can find available fee discount opportunities on the Fee discounts page, Pricing Dashboard, Manage Inventory, and through Selling Coach.

Amazon currently offers three types of referral fee discounts:

  • Price-related: Get a discount by improving your price competitiveness.
  • Selection-related: Get a discount by increasing your selection.
  • Prime-related: Get a discount by increasing your selection of Prime products.

Note: Fee discount opportunities are only available for sellers on the Professional selling plan.

Price-related fee discounts

Some products may be eligible for a referral fee discount when sold at or below a discount price threshold. Any eligible product you sell at a total sales price at or below the discount price threshold will receive the fee discount listed for that product until the fee discount ends. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the buyer, including the item price and any shipping or gift wrap charges.

Selection-related fee discounts

Occasionally, we might offer limited-time referral fee discounts on sales of products that are popular with our customers, or on new products that you add in popular brands or categories. These discounts have no pricing limitations, and every sale of an eligible product will receive a fee discount until the discount ends.

Prime-related fee discounts

You might also be eligible for limited-time referral fee discounts on sales of products that you offer through FBA and Seller Fulfilled Prime. These discounts have no pricing limitations, and every sale of an eligible product will receive a fee discount until the discount ends.

FAQ

How long do fee discounts last?

The duration of each fee discount varies. Find the end dates in the Referral fee discount column of each table of available fee discount opportunities on the Fee discounts page.

Amazon applies referral fee discounts at the time an order is placed for any eligible products sold while the discount is active. Referral fee discounts will show up as a Discount on the referral fee line item in your Transaction Details. Fee discounts are limited-time only, and after the specified end date, standard referral fees will apply. Amazon may change or cancel any fee discount at any time. For more information on referral fees, see the Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule.

How do I ignore fee discount opportunities I'm not interested in?

Each fee discount opportunity listed on the Fee discounts page, Pricing Dashboard, and Selling Coach includes a Skip action that hides the listing from these locations for seven days.

If I lower a product price to take advantage of a price-related fee discount, will the price revert back when the discount ends?

No. You would need to update your price again for a price change to take effect. Standard referral fees will apply after the discount ends.

What are “Estimated net proceeds”?

Estimated net proceeds are the difference between your total sales price and the estimated fees you would pay if you sold a product at this price. To see your estimated net proceeds:

  • Click the triangle next to the discount price threshold for each listing in the Pricing opportunities section of the Fee discounts page.
  • Click the triangle next to each listing in the Estimated net proceeds at price threshold column on the Manage Inventory and Pricing Dashboard pages.

For selection-related fee discounts, what is a "new" listing?

New listings are products for which you did not have an active listing in the past 60 calendar days. Only products that were marked Inactive in Manage Inventory or that you did not have in your inventory in the past 60 calendar days are considered new listings.

In the list of selection-related fee discounts, what does "Offers" represent?

Offers tells you how many sellers currently offer a particular product on Amazon. Clicking the Offers number will open a new window, showing you all the sellers and their prices.
