01 Amazon Product Fees

If you sell on Amazon, the products you list will have their own fees depending on the category they belong to.

To know exactly which fees will apply to each category of products, we recommend that you check Amazon's guide here: Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule.

Note: it's also important to know that, as a seller, you will pay a Referral Fee to Amazon for each item sold. Some categories have a per-item minimum Referral Fee but some others will charge a Referral Fee for each item.

For some particular products, such as Electronic Accessories, the percentage fee will change based on the total sales. It can be 15% up to a total sales value up to one point, then a different value after a certain point.
Let's take a look at the example Amazon provides in their guide with the Watches category.

The Referral Fee for the Watches category on Amazon is the following:
So this is how much Referral Fee you'll pay for an $8 watch, $1,500 watch or $7,000 watch:
Note: don't forget that other fees can apply to your products. The Amazon guide is a good read and keeps you up to date on how Amazon generates these fees. Examples are given at the bottom for different product categories.
