£0.0003 per active non-media SKU
As of February 1, 2015, we calculate the monthly High-Volume Listing Fee based on the number of active non-media SKUs 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 £0.0003 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 would be £300 (3,000,000 - 2,000,000 SKUs = 1,000,000 SKUs x £0.0003).
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 you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable Refund Administration Fee, which is the lesser of GBP 5.00 or 20% of the applicable referral fee.
For example, if you refund a customer the GBP 10.00 total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% referral fee, your Refund Administration Fee will be GBP 0.30 (GBP 10.00 x 15% referral fee = GBP 1.50).
