Participation in the Core program costs $1,600/month + 0.3% of your total sales in the previous calendar month, including the item price but excluding any returns, shipping, gift wrap, or other charges (“Total Monthly Revenue”) + tax. Fees in any month will cap at $5,000.
Here’s an example: Between July 1 and July 31, 2019, Kristin’s Jewelry Store, a hypothetical seller on Amazon who participates in the Core program, sold $130,000 in Total Monthly Revenue. Kristin’s Jewelry store would be billed $1,990 (+ tax) on August 1. Calculation: ($1,600 + (.003*$130,000))
Please note, billing calculations are based on your previous month's Total Monthly Revenue (“Total Monthly Revenue” = item price * quantity; Total Monthly Revenue does not include returns, shipping, gift wrap or other charges) and, therefore, will vary from month to month.
