Ab April gelten in den USA neue Gebühren für Händler in der Kategorie Bekleidung.
Für Schuhe, Handtaschen, Sonnenbrillen gelten dann 18% bei Verkäufen über 75 US-Dollar (bisher 15%), bei Bekleidung und Accessoires 17% (statt bisher 15%). Sicher nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis die neuen Gebühren auch in Europa landen.
We will be making three important Referral fee changes on Amazon.com:
- For a limited time, the Referral fee will be reduced for eligible Jewelry items. Sellers will pay 20% on the portion of the total sales price up to $250, and 5% for any portion of the total sales price greater than $250, with a minimum fee of $2.00 per item. This fee reduction will take effect on February 22, 2018 (midnight PST), and last until February 21, 2019 (11:59 PM PST). Starting on February 22, 2019 (midnight PST), the Referral fee will go back to 20% of the total sales price, with a minimum fee of $2.00.
- The Referral fee will be increased for eligible products in Shoes, Handbags & Sunglasses. Sellers will pay 15% on items with a total sales price up to $75, and 18% on items with a total sales price greater than $75, with a minimum fee of $1.00 per item. This change will take effect on April 15, 2018 (midnight PST).
- The Referral fee will be increased for Clothing & Accessories items. Sellers will pay 17% of the total sales price, with a minimum fee of $1.00 per item. This change will take effect on April 15, 2018 (midnight PST).
For all products, Amazon deducts the greater of the applicable Referral fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum Referral fee. Referral fees are calculated on the total sales price excluding any taxes calculated through Amazon tax calculation services. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the buyer, including the item price, and any delivery or gift wrapping charges.
