These Luxury Stores programme terms apply to your participation in the Luxury Stores invite-only programme. These terms supplement the Amazon Services Europe Business Solutions Agreement.
Luxury Stores is an invite-only programme. If we invite you to join the programme, we will engage with you to determine which of your brands and products are eligible for Luxury Stores (“Luxury Eligible Products”).
The Luxury Stores referral fee is 20% for each Luxury Eligible Products in Fashion categories sold in Luxury Stores and 30% for each Luxury Eligible Products in Beauty categories sold in Luxury Stores.
Standard FBA fees apply to luxury eligible products in Fashion and Beauty utilizing FBA. Return processing fees and order removal fees are waived.
Both the referral and fulfilment fees indicated above will be increased by 2% (for items sold on amazon.co.uk) and 3% (for items sold on amazon.it, amazon.es, amazon.fr). This adjustment is due to the Digital Service Tax (DST) applicable to sales made on those Amazon Sites. To facilitate understanding DST impact on fees, note that (i) to calculate the increase on referral fees rates that are percentage based, you should add 2% or 3%, depending on the Amazon Site where the item is sold, to the absolute fee amount. Note that the increase is not an increase of two percentage points; (ii) to calculate the increase on fees that are cash value (for example, FBA fulfilment and storage fees), you should add 2% or 3%, depending on the Amazon Site where the item is sold, on to the cash value.
If you choose seller fulfilment, you agree to the following requirements for all Luxury Eligible Products.
Selling Partners agree to provide the shipping benefits described below for all seller fulfilled items:
|Shipping speed||Eligible addresses|
|Free three-day shipping||All addresses in the EU, UK, and Switzerland.|
You also agree to offer free shipping to Luxury Stores customers who select delivery options that are three-day shipping or slower.
Selling Partners are recommended to buy all shipping labels for order through Buy Shipping. By using Buy Shipping, Selling Partners agree to our terms and conditions and the terms and conditions of the applicable carrier or service provider for both delivery from fulfilment centre and returns shipping.
If you choose not to buy shipping labels through Buy Shipping, you agree to manually send us a shipment confirmation notification and the valid tracking number for each order processed on the Manage Orders page.
We display a guaranteed delivery date message for all seller fulfilled items eligible for three-day shipping. Luxury Stores customer service may provide full shipping cost refunds when customers contact regarding a late delivery, and may charge the seller’s account for the cost of any refund.
