  • Handmade at Amazon Fee Schedule

    Registering for Handmade at Amazon comes with a free Professional selling plan. If you currently have, or previously had, a Professional selling plan, you may still be eligible for the free Professional selling plan if you are a Professional seller who sells primarily in Handmade and does not sell more than 40 non-handmade items in categories other than Handmade on Amazon in a given month on your Handmade account. If you currently have an Individual selling plan, you must upgrade to a Professional selling plan first before continuing with your Handmade at Amazon registration. Selling more than 40 non-handmade items in different categories on your Handmade account will result in you being subject to the monthly fee of $39.99, as outlined in the seller agreement. The current $39.99 monthly Professional selling plan subscription fee is waived through August 1, 2016 for Handmade at Amazon artisans.¹ 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.

    Sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold. Items in several categories have a per-item minimum referral fee as listed below. Sellers pay the greater of the referral fee or the per-item minimum referral fee.
