Fulfilment fees

Amazon terminology:

Referral fees

For each product sold, sellers pay Amazon a percentage of the total price (this percentage is applied to the final price of the product, including shipping costs, VAT and gift-wrapping charges) or a minimum amount, whichever is greater. Referral fees are in addition to selling plan fees.
FEES

Category referral fees

Sellers pay a referral fee for each product sold. For all products, Amazon deducts the applicable referral fee percentage calculated based on the total sales price. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the buyer, including the item price and any shipping or gift-wrapping charges.

Fulfilment by Amazon storage and fulfilment fees *

Inventory storage fees are charged monthly based on the average daily volume (measured in cubic metres) of the space that your inventory occupies in Amazon fulfilment centres. The volume measurement is based on the size of the unit when it is properly packaged and ready to ship.

*Storage fees are based on the average daily volume of space (measured in cubic metres) that your inventory occupies in Amazon fulfilment centres.
Additional inventory storage fees apply to products classified as dangerous goods and to units stored in an Amazon fulfilment centre for more than 271 days (long-term inventory storage surcharge).
In addition to the monthly storage fees, you may have to pay a storage surcharge if the criteria applies to you and if the storage usage rate exceeds 26 weeks. This is calculated by dividing the average volume of inventory stored daily by the average volume of inventory shipped daily (all in cubic feet) over the past 13 weeks.

Are you planning to sell all over Europe? Pan-European FBA and FBA solutions enable thousands of businesses to reach millions of Prime customers across Europe, faster and more cost-effectively.
When you fulfil orders yourself, Amazon charges shipping fees based on the product category and shipping service selected by the customer and then transfers the amount to you in the form of shipping credit.
Sellers on the Professional plan set their own shipping rates (except for Books, Music, Video and DVDs; see credit table below). When a customer buys your product, you receive credit from Amazon that matches the shipping rate. Please note that the referral fee is calculated from the total sales price, including the item price, shipping cost and any gift-wrapping charges.
Sellers on the Individual plan use the shipping fees set by Amazon for all products. Sellers on the Individual plan are required to ship orders at set rates, even if the shipping credit is less than the total shipping cost, so it's important to price your products in a way that ensures you make a profit.

Shipping credits for Books, Music, Video and DVD

Amazon charges customers the following shipping rates for Books, Music, Video and DVD products. Sellers receive the same amount in the form of shipping credit. This applies to sellers on the Professional and Individual selling plans.

Other costs

When calculating the total cost of selling in Amazon shops, make sure that you consider any additional selling costs that you may incur and other optional programmes designed to help you increase sales

Additional selling fees

Inventory charges
If you store inventory in an Amazon fulfilment centre, available to selling partners using FBA or Multi-Channel Fulfilment, in addition to monthly storage fees, you may incur other charges such as long-term storage fees for exceeding the stated amount, or removal fees.
High volume listing fees
The high volume listing fee will only apply if you exceed 2 million SKUs in a given month, and will apply to the highest number of SKUs over 2 million at any time in that month. For each active non-multimedia SKU greater than 2 million, a fee of €0.0004 per SKU will apply.
Refund handling fee
If you refund a customer for an order for which you have already received payment, Amazon will refund you the amount of the referral fee you paid for the products, minus the applicable refund administration fee, which is the lesser of €5 or 20% of the applicable referral fee.

For example, if you refund a customer the €10 total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% referral fee, the refund administration fee will be €0.30 (€10 x 15% referral fee = €1.50).

Optional programmes

Advertising
Attract customers before they realise that they need your product and until the moment when they buy it. Amazon Advertising uses a cost-per-click auction-based pricing model, which means that you can set the maximum amount that you're willing to pay when a buyer clicks on your ad.
Fulfilment by Amazon
Amazon takes care of your shipping, returns and customer service. Special FBA programmes such as Low-price FBA Rates, Subscribe & Save for FBA, FBA Dangerous Goods, Multi-Channel Fulfilment, FBA European Solutions and FBA New Selection help you to stay competitive and only pay for the services you use.

FAQs

Get answers to the most frequently asked questions about using Amazon for e-commerce.
How are Amazon's FBA fees calculated?
FBA or fulfilment fees are calculated per item based on its category, size and weight, as well as the channel through which the item is sold. They cover the costs of storing your items in Amazon fulfilment centres, as well as the collection, packaging and delivery once purchased, and customer service costs.

These fees are charged per calendar month for all items stored in Amazon's fulfilment centres. Depending on the fulfilment channel used, you can get a preview of your estimated income (both total sales revenue and estimates per unit sold) using the FBA revenue calculator for specific items listed on Amazon.
What is the FBA calculator?
The FBA calculator is an estimating tool that you can use to check and compare the estimated revenue across every fulfilment option available for the products that you have listed on Amazon and registered for Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA). You can enter the expected total sales volume to estimate your total revenue, check the estimates per unit sold, and compare fees and profitability across the different fulfilment methods.
What is the difference between Amazon fees and FBA fees?
Amazon fees refer to the total charges that all sellers have to pay in order for their products to appear and be sold on the Amazon website. This includes the referral fee, which is a percentage of the total price of your product, before tax. It is charged for each item sold and varies by category.

Then, depending on your selling plan, you can either be charged per item or charged a fixed monthly fee. For example, the Professional selling plan incurs a monthly fee, which also offers the user a number of benefits.

In addition to this, some sellers may have to pay additional fees for premium services, marketing or other reasons. You can find more information about this on this page.

By contrast, FBA (Fulfilment by Amazon) fees are charged only for the products that you have listed under this specific service. They are charged per unit based on the category, size and weight of the item and cover the costs of storing, collecting, packaging and delivering your products using FBA. If you have opted into this service, these fees will be charged along with the other Amazon fees mentioned above.
How much does Amazon charge for product storage?
Sellers must pay a monthly inventory storage fee (storage fees) for the space occupied by all items stored in Amazon Fulfilment centres. It is calculated based on the average daily inventory volume, measured in cubic meters.

The fee per cubic metre varies depending on the calendar month: it is lower from January to September, while a slightly higher amount is charged for the high-traffic months at the end of the year, from October to December. The exact amount also depends on the product category and dimensions (size).

There is a different fee structure for the storage of dangerous goods.
