Reduced referral fee for low-price Clothing and Accessories

by News_Amazon

Starting May 15, 2024, we’ll reduce the referral fee for low-priced Clothing and Accessories.

We will reduce the fee from 15% to 8% for Clothing and Accessories that are priced below £15 in the UK, below €15 in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium, and below SEK 175 in Sweden.

In Poland, we will reduce the referral fee from 10% to 8% for Clothing and Accessories that are priced below PLN 65. This change will enable you to offer customers more of a selection, including low-price products.

The referral fees for other category types will remain unchanged.

To review the referral fee categories, go to Understanding fee categories.

Does this include Jewellery which comes under fashion?

The 20.4% + VAT fee is crippling for low value items. Which is possibly why many sellers list their jewellery under any other category but the jewellery category. Example ASIN: B0C8NKPFDC which is listed under Golf Accessories which is 15.3% + VAT

Hello Sellers,

Thank you for your call outs!

Could you please share examples of ASINs that should be updated with the new fee amount?

I can also reach out to you individually in a private message if it´s more convenient.

Thank you,

Julia.

Yes mine are still showing at 15.3% as well

My example ASIN B09XXRLQTL from yesterday still has the old commission rate showing.

When I despatch later I will look to see if the actual commission taken is correct

This is very disappointing it is not the first time that fees have not updated correctly on a change....

I can view the referral fees again, and they're still at 15.3%. Here is a sample ASIN:

B0CYZT5DJY

As before, it's all of our items, which 95%+ are t-shirts under £15.

Hello Sellers,

Thank you for sharing updates! I am adding you to the list of impacted sellers, no need to share ASIN numbers.

All sellers, please comment this thread if the lower referral fee (8%) for Clothing and Accessories category does not reflect on your listings.

Thank you for your cooperation,

Julia.

Update:

Dear Selling Partners,

We noticed that your Clothing and Accessories products priced below £15 in the UK, below €15 in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium, below PLN 65 in Poland, and below SEK 175 in Sweden have been incorrectly charged a referral fee of 15% instead of the revised rate of 8% between May 15 to May 17. Overcharged fee reimbursement for the impacted sales will be processed before May 30th.

We are actively engaged in an internal investigation to address this matter immediately and expect the issue to be fixed before close of business day on May 17th.

Your patience during this process is highly valued and we thank you for your understanding.

If you have further questions regarding this matter, we kindly recommend you contact our Seller Support team.

A new case can be created by following this link: https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/contact-us/contact-amazon-form.html

Kind regards,

Julia.
