Amazon France Increasing Referral Fees


#1

Dear Selling Partner,

Following the creation of a 3% digital services tax in France, we would like to inform you that we will have to adjust our referral fee rates on Amazon.fr to reflect this additional cost. Starting October 1, 2019, the referral fee on sales that occur on Amazon.fr will increase by 3%. For example, on an item for which the referral fee is currently 15%, you will pay a fee of 15.45% from October 1, 2019.

Additional examples:

• On an item for which the total sales price is €100, and the current referral fee rate is 15%, your referral fee rate starting October 1, 2019 will be 15.45%, and the referral fee you pay will be €15.45 (calculated as 15.45% of €100).

• On an item for which the total sales price is €100, and the current referral fee rate is 12%, your referral fee rate starting October 1, 2019 will be 12.36%, and the referral fee you pay will be €12.36 (calculated as 12.36% of €100).

For more information about these upcoming changes, including fee schedules, definitions and examples, refer to the Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule: https://sellercentral-europe.amazon.com/gp/help/200336920

Thank you for selling on Amazon.

Yet one more reason for 3PS to increase their selling prices (and avoid undercutting) on that marketplace.

Let’s see if the other marketplaces will follow suit…

Time to increase costs especially as imports will be more expensive with the pound dropping against the dollar.
