Fees for the Sports Collectibles Store

In addition to other fees listed in our fee table, sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold that is listed in the Sports Collectibles category. For items listed in the Sports Collectibles category, Amazon deducts a varying percentage of the total sales price (including any shipping or giftwrap charges) as a referral fee, excluding any taxes collected through Amazon tax calculation services.

For example, if the total sales price is $500, the referral fee is calculated as follows: $20 (for the first $100 of the total sales price) plus $40 (for the remaining $400 of the total sales price) for a total referral fee of $60.
