Fees and Pricing

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 deducts as a referral fee a percentage of the item price and any gift wrap charges, in each case excluding any taxes collected, plus a variable closing fee. Sellers who do not pay a monthly subscription fee also pay a per item fee for each item sold.

Amazon platform shipping rates apply to all items sold. Only Professional sellers can offer gift wrap.

See Shipping Rates and Services for a table of shipping credits.

Here's how it works:

Item price
+ Shipping charges paid by the buyer
+ Gift wrap charges paid by the buyer
- Referral fee (applicable percentage of the item price and any gift wrap charges paid by the buyer)
- Variable closing fee
- $1.49 per item fee (waived for sellers who pay a subscription fee)
-------------------------------------
= Total deposited to seller account
