Registering for Amazon comes with a free Professional selling plan: Amazon will waive the current monthly Professional selling plan subscription fee of £25 until December 31, 2019 for eligible Amazon artisans¹. If you currently have, or have previously had, a Professional selling plan, you could still be eligible for the free Professional selling plan. If you are an existing seller with an Individual selling plan, you must upgrade to a Professional selling plan and apply to join Amazon before registering.
You pay a Referral Fee for each item sold, calculated based on the total sales price (the total amount paid by the buyer including the item price and any delivery or gift wrap charges).
For Amazon Handmade artisans, the following promotional referral fees will apply until 31 December 2019² and all fees are Value Added Tax (VAT) exclusive:
|Handmade Categories||Referral Fee Percentages||Per-item Minimum Referral Fee|
|Handmade: Toys & Games||12%||£0.30|
|Handmade: Clothing, Shoes and Bags||12%||£0.30|
|Handmade: Pet Supplies||12%||£0.30|
¹The subscription fee waiver will only apply provided that you are an Amazon Handmade artisan and do not sell more than 40 (non-handmade) products in categories on Amazon other than Amazon Handmade categories in a month. If you lose your eligibility to the subscription fee waiver, Amazon will charge the monthly Professional selling plan subscription fee thereafter. The subscription fee waiver does not include and affect other fees payable to Amazon. All fees are VAT exclusive.
²After 31 December 2019, standard category referral fees (15%) will apply to all Amazon Handmade category transactions. For more information on fees, see the Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule.
³Home includes the following: Art, Bath & Shower, Bedding & Linens, Furniture, Cooking & Dining, Lighting, Patio, Garden & Outdoors, Laundry & Storage, Party Supplies and Stationery.
