Amazon's commission fees vary depending on the product category and the specific program or service used by sellers.   Amazon charges sellers fees in various forms, including referral fees, fulfillment fees, subscription fees for certain seller programs, and other additional fees.

1.Referral Fees

These are fees charged as a percentage of the total price (including item price and any shipping or gift wrap charges) for each item sold.   The referral fee percentages vary by category and typically range from 6% to 45%.   Different categories have different fee structures, and some categories have fixed minimum referral fees.

2.Fulfillment Fees

For sellers using Amazon's fulfillment services like Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), additional fees are charged for storage, picking, packing, and shipping of products.   These fees depend on the item's size, weight, and the fulfillment option chosen.

3.Subscription Fees:

Amazon offers different seller programs like Amazon Professional Selling Plan, which charges a monthly subscription fee, but it provides additional features and benefits compared to the individual seller plan.

It's important to note that Amazon's fee structure is subject to change, and the commission rates may vary by country or region.   Sellers can find the most up-to-date and specific fee details by checking Amazon's Seller Central or by referring to Amazon's Fee Schedule for their respective marketplace.
