United Kingdom Amazon Fees Structure

Amazon is the top marketplace in the UK with almost twice the amount of traffic eBay gets. It makes perfect sense to sell on its 3rd party marketplace but you need to be careful about the hidden fees.

There are a few fees to note when selling on Amazon UK:

  • referral fee
  • fixed closing fee (if you're an individual seller)
  • FBA fulfilment cost (if you use FBA)
  • FBA storage cost (if you use FBA)
  • advertising cost

When an item is sold, all sellers (individual or professional) will need to pay a referral fee. Different item category have a different rate and some even has a variable closing fee.

For individual sellers, each sold item will come with a £0.75 fixed closing fee and you can only sell up to 35 items (not orders) per month.

FBA is available for all sellers (individual or professional) and if you're using it, you need to be aware of the fulfilment and storage charges.

Lastly, there are advertising costs and they are cost per click.

For professional sellers, you will be charged an additional 20% VAT for all fees if you're not VAT registered. If you're VAT registered, you need to add your VAT number in the seller center to avoid getting charged the additional 20%.

Referral fee

Regardless of the seller plan, all sellers pay the same referral fees. The fees vary depending on the item category. Some category requires an additional variable closing fee.

For more information, please refer to Amazon Fee Schedule.

FBA

The two main charges when using the Amazon warehouses are fulfilment (when an item is sold) and storage.

For more information, please refer to the fulfilment by Amazon page.

Clothing, and Shoes and Bags January - September £0.40 per cubic foot £0.46 per cubic foot
October - December £0.56 per cubic foot £0.64 per cubic foot
All other categories January - September £0.66 per cubic foot £0.46 per cubic foot

FBM

If you decided to ship through your own warehouse, you will go by the FBM (fulfilled by merchant) route.

Individual sellers

Individual sellers can't set their own shipping rates. When you ship an order, you will receive a standardised shipping credit. The shipping charges are based on the product category and the shipping method selected by the buyer (either standard or expedited). If you are confused about shipping credits, please refer to this excellent forum explanation.

For more information about shipping credit, please refer to Amazon's shipping credits for individual sellers.

Professional sellers

Professional FBM sellers can set their shipping rates except for media products (Books, Music, Video and DVD). For these products, you will receive a shipping credit when you shipped the order. The shipping credit is the same as what individual FBM sellers receive (see above table).
