Selling Fees

Per-item fees

Professional Selling Plan: no per-item fee
Individual Selling Plan: $0.99 fee for each item sold

When your item sells, Amazon collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the item price and any shipping, gift wrap, or other charges). Amazon platform shipping rates apply to media products (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games) sold by Professional Sellers, and to all products sold by Individual Sellers. Only Professional Sellers can offer gift wrap.

Shipping Fees (Fulfilling Orders)


When you fulfill orders yourself, Amazon platform shipping rates apply to media products (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games) sold by Professional Sellers, and to all products sold by Individual Sellers. We charge these shipping rates based on the product category and shipping service selected by the buyer, and then pass the amount on to you.

For products that Amazon fulfills for you, in addition to the Selling on Amazon fees, you will be charged fees for order fulfillment, storage and optional services. See Fulfillment by Amazon fees page for more information or learn more about Fulfillment by Amazon.


Referral Fees

Sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold. Items in several categories have a per-item minimum referral fee (i.e., sellers pay the greater of the referral fee or the per-item minimum referral fee).

For media products(books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games), Amazon deducts the greater of the applicable referral fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum referral fee calculated on the item price, excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax collection services.

For non-media products, Amazon deducts the greater of the applicable referral fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum referral fee calculated on the total sales price (the total amount paid by the buyer including the item price and any shipping or gift wrap charges), excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax collection services.

Variable Closing Fees

For each media item that is sold, Individual and Professional Sellers also pay a variable closing fee.
