Royalty details

How are royalties calculated?
You earn a royalty on every product sold. Your royalty is based on your product's purchase price less Amazon's costs and fees. Amazon costs include materials, production, fulfillment, customer service, returns, exchanges, and resources required to detect and prevent fraud. Fulfillment costs include picking and packing your product when a customer orders it and shipping your product to the customer—including shipping for Amazon Prime and Free Shipping eligible orders. The difference between the purchase price and Amazon's costs is shared as a royalty between the brand owner (2/3rds) and the designer (1/3rd).
