¹The Everything Else category is available to the sellers for the products that do not clearly fit within the existing categories. Do not list items in the Everything Else category that appropriately fall within another category.

Sellers may require approval from Amazon before listing in some product categories, and not all categories may be within scope for at launch.

Closing fees

Sellers also pay a closing fee of $1.00 per media item that is sold. Media categories are Books, DVD, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, Video, and Video Game Consoles.

Refund administration fee

If you refund a customer for an order for which you have already received payment, Amazon will refund you the amount of the Referral Fee you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable Refund Administration Fee, which is the lesser of $5.00 or 20% of the applicable Referral Fee.

For example, if you refund a customer the $10.00 total sales price of an item in a category with a 8% Referral Fee, your Refund Administration Fee will be $0.16 ($10.00 x 8% Referral Fee = $0.80).
