America Amazon Fees Structure

In the United States, Amazon accounts for almost 40% of retail ecommerce sales. So it makes sense to set up a store on Amazon.com and tries to reach more customers, but there are different fees which can get a little complicated.

The main Amazon fees are:

  • Referral fees
  • Closing fees (variable and fixed)
  • FBA cost (if you store your goods with Amazon)
  • FBA storage cost (if you store your goods with Amazon)

For professional sellers, there is a monthly fee and no monthly sales limit. There is a monthly sales limit of 40 units for individual sellers and each sale includes an additional fixed closing fee of $0.99.

The referral fee is calculated based on the total sales price, including the sale, shipping and gift wrapping prices. Referral and closing fees are based on the product category so both professional and individual sellers pay the same amount.

Some categories have a flat percentage and some have different charges on different portions of the total sales price.
Let's take an item listing in Collectibles - Coins as an example.
If the total sales price of the item is $500, the referral fee will be ($250 * 0.15) + ($250 * 0.10) = $62.50

Most product categories also have a minimum referral fee of 30ยข while some don't any minimum.
Some categories require prior approval before listing. For more information on referral fees, please refer to Amazon pricing page.

If you fulfil your orders through Amazon, you need to pay the FBA shipping cost and storage cost. There are also charges if your item is not sold over a certain period. Check out their long-term storage fees for more details.
