Amazon has informed sellers today that they will be increasing fees as they introduce a new Electronics Accessories category in the next few days. The notice from Amazon to sellers says: “The Electronics Accessories category will have the following referral fees on the UK, German, French, Italian and Spanish Amazon Marketplaces: 12% or 0.50 GBP/EUR minimum fee per unit, whichever is higher.”
The current % fee is 7%. The new fees will come into effect on the 5th April 2013.
Existing listings for Electronics Accessories will be moved into the new category today the 5th April. Other Electronics fees will be unaffected.
