Fees for opening a shop on Amazon
Before explaining the step-by-step steps for creating your own Amazon store, it will be helpful to know what the rates for the management of your online shop and the costs applied for each successful sale. At the time of writing this guide, it is possible to open a store on Amazon by choosing two sales plans.
- Basic sales plan: is the plan dedicated to occasional sellers who have no particular needs, it allows you to create a maximum of 40 ads per month. It has no recurring cost and allows you to open a shop for free. For each item sold, there is a fixed closing fee of € 0,99, a referral fee and a management fee that vary depending on the category of the product sold.
- Pro sales plan: at a recurring cost of 39 euros / month, it allows you to manage a professional shop without limitations in the creation of advertisements. It allows you to use automated tools to upload your inventory, track your orders and sell across all Amazon categories. Pro sellers do not pay the fixed closing fee but reporting and management fees apply.
You should know that after opening your store, you can change your sales plan at any time by accessing the Settings of your seller account. Therefore, I recommend that you start your business with a free plan, monitor sales and, if things go well, upgrade to the Pro plan.
