2020 Amazon referral fee changes (Europe)

Note: For an overview of 2020 selling fee changes, visit 2020 Referral and FBA fee changes summary (Europe).

We invest in tools and programs to increase access to more customers and to help our sellers grow their business on Amazon. Each year, we assess our referral fees to ensure they reflect changing industry dynamics and costs, as well as the feedback we receive from our sellers.

These changes to Amazon referral fees in Europe take effect on April 1, 2020, except where otherwise stated, and will be applicable across our European marketplaces. The full list of changes is below:

Clothing, Shoes and Handbags referral fee promotion for FBA and Seller Fulfilled Prime

The referral fee will be decreased during the promotional period starting March 1, 2020, through February 28, 2021, from 15% to 7% on the portion of total sales price greater than €45/£40. For example, on an item with a total price of €75, the referral percentage will be 15% on the first €45 and 7% on the remaining €30, resulting in a total referral fee of €8.85 (€45*15% + €30*7%). This promotion is applicable only to items fulfilled through FBA and Seller Fulfilled Prime. Accessories (handbags, belts, sunglasses and shoe accessories) will also be part of the promotion.

Note: Due to COVID-19 related restrictions EU sellers faced during March and April 2020, we have extended the promotional referral fee discount by 2 months for FBA and Seller Fulfilled Prime items in the Clothing, Shoes, and Handbags category that are priced above €45 or £40. The promotion will run until April 30, 2021.

Personal Care Appliances

The referral fee will be decreased from 15% to 8% for Personal Care Appliances with a total sales price of €10/£10 or less. For items with a total sales price above €10/£10, the referral fee will remain at 15%.

Computer and Electronics Accessories

The referral fee will be increased from 12% to 15% for the portion of the total sales price up to €100/£100 and will be decreased from 12% to 8% for the portion of the total sales price greater than €100/£100. For example, on an item with a total price of €175, the referral percentage will be 15% on the first €100 and 8% on the remaining €75, resulting in a total referral fee of €21 (€100*15% + €75*8%).

Digital services tax in Italy

With the introduction of the 3% digital services tax in Italy, we will adjust our referral fee rates on Amazon.it accordingly, starting April 1, 2020. For example, on an item for which the referral fee is currently 15.00%, the new referral fee will be 15.45%, resulting in an increase of 3% in the referral fee amount. If there are further changes to the digital services tax, the referral fee will be adjusted accordingly.

Digital services tax in the UK

With the introduction of the 2% Digital Services Tax (DST) in the UK in spring of 2020, we have adjusted Referral fees, FBA fees, and monthly FBA storage fees. We have not applied these charges retroactively, rather as of September 1, 2020, the aforementioned fee types increased by 2%. Starting September 15, 2020, Multi-Channel Fulfillment fees will also increase by 2%.

Ring Accessories

Starting April 1, 2020, we will consolidate Ring accessories into the Amazon Device Accessories category. This will result in increase of referral fee from 12% to 45%.
