Here are some questions you may have about the expenses of selling products on Amazon:
What are the different selling plans that Amazon offers?
The two types of selling plans that are offered by Amazon are the Professional plan and the Individual plan. The Individual plan requires individuals to pay $0.99 per item they sell, on top of additional fees. The Professional plan requires individuals to pay $39.99 per month, plus additional fees, regardless of how many items they sell. Selling less than 40 items per month may mean that the Individual plan is best for you. If you sell more than 40 items per month, you should consider the Professional plan.
What is a referral fee?
You will receive a referral fee each time you sell an item through Amazon. This means that Amazon will take between 8% and 15% of your earnings on each item that you sell.
Should I use FBA?
Fulfillment by Amazon is a shipping service that many Amazon sellers use as a cost-effective means to ship their products. Amazon sellers do have the option to ship products on their own. The type of shipping you choose should depend on the type of product you sell and the size of your business as a whole.
You should also note that you will likely incur additional fees at some point such as inventory fees, rental book services fees, high-volume fees, and refund administration fees. You may also want to look into purchasing advertisements on Amazon to boost your product visibility.
