If the Amazon site is the DE Amazon site, the following Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule applies (all fees are VAT exclusive).
When your item sells, Amazon collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the item price and any delivery, gift wrap or other charges). Amazon delivery rates apply to all products sold by Individual sellers. Only Professional sellers can offer gift wrap.

€0.0004 per active non-media SKU
As of 1 February 2015, we calculate the monthly High-Volume Listing Fee based on the number of active non-media SKUs that you offer for sale on Amazon. The High-Volume Listing Fee will only apply if you exceed 2 million SKUs in a given month, and it will be applied to your highest number of SKUs above 2 million at any time during that month. For each active non-media SKU over 2 million, a fee of €0.0004 per SKU will apply.
For example, if during the month a total of 3 million active non-media SKUs were made available by you, the fee applied for that month will be €400 (3,000,000 - 2,000,000 SKUs = 1,000,000 SKUs x €0.0004).
The fee will be calculated monthly and it will be shown on your next month’s statement.
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 that you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable Refund Administration Fee, which is the lesser of EUR 5.00 or 20% of the applicable Referral Fee.
For example, if you refund a customer the EUR 10.00 total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% Referral Fee, your Refund Administration Fee will be EUR 0.30 (EUR 10.00 x 15% Referral Fee = EUR 1.50).
