How much does it cost to sell on Amazon

To start a successful business on Amazon, you need to get a clear understanding of what the selling costs are and what you can do to save the most money. If not, you might get bad surprises and throw away your budget without realizing it.

There are a few different types of selling fees you might pay, depending on your selling plan and the types of products you sell.

Subscription fees:

These are the fees you pay for your selling plan, and they vary depending on which plan you select.

  • On the Professional selling plan there’s a flat fee of $39.99 per month and no per-item fee.
  • On the Individual selling plan there’s a $0.99 fee for each item sold.

Selling fees:

These fees are charged per item sold, and they include referral fees (which are a percentage of the selling price and vary depending on the product’s category), and variable closing fees (which apply only to media categories).

Shipping fees:

When you fulfill orders yourself, Amazon shipping rates apply. We charge these shipping rates based on the product category and shipping service selected by the buyer.

FBA fees:

For products that Amazon fulfills for you (known as Fulfillment by Amazon, or FBA), there are fees for order fulfillment, storage, and optional services.
