Amazon Handmade Fee schedule

Your registration for Amazon comes with a free Professional selling plan. Amazon will waive the current monthly Professional selling plan subscription fee of CAD$29.99, for eligible Amazon artisans¹. If you currently have, or previously had, a Professional selling plan, you can still be eligible for the free Professional selling plan. If you are an existing seller with Amazon with an Individual selling plan, you will need to upgrade to a Professional selling plan and apply to join Handmade at Amazon before registering.

You pay a referral fee on each item sold. Amazon deducts the greater of the applicable referral fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum referral fee calculated on the total sales price (the total amount paid by the buyer including the item price and any delivery or gift wrap charges).
