Amazon Pay Fees

The Fee Schedule for Amazon Payments Accounts appears below. We have changed the way we charge merchants in accordance with the new European Interchange Fee Regulation. The Processing Fee will now be separated into an Interchange Fee and a Merchant Service Charge, although note that the overall cost to merchants will stay the same. The Interchange Fee and the Merchant Service Charge are based on a percentage of the transaction amount and are each calculated on a per-capture basis. The transaction amount is the total cost for the items including VAT, plus shipping, and minus any promotional discounts. In addition to the Processing Fee, a non-refundable Authorisation Fee is charged on a per-authorisation basis.

Currency conversion fee

For each transaction that requires currency conversion, you will be charged a currency conversion spread set at 2.5% above the wholesale exchange rate applied by our bank service provider. This currency conversion spread will be embedded in the conversion rate that will be used to convert funds into your ledger currency. The conversion will always occur at a per-transaction level.

Amazon Pay will include both the funds that are converted and those that are already in the base currency in the same settlement report, and will disburse funds in the currency associated with your merchant account. For example, if your merchant account is registered in the UK, and if you have funds in your account in a currency other than GBP, Amazon Pay will convert those funds into GBP and disburse them along with your regular GBP transactions. Likewise, if your ledger currency is EURO, Amazon Pay will convert any non-EURO funds into EURO and disburse them along with regular EURO transactions.

All transactions such as refunds and chargebacks will be processed using the conversion rate that was in place at the time of the original charge.

Chargeback Dispute Fee

If you request to dispute a chargeback claim that is not covered under our Payment Protection Policy (see section 3.1 of the Amazon Payments Europe User Agreement - Seller Accounts), we will charge a fixed fee of £14 (excluding VAT) to your Amazon Payments Merchant Account. Any non-VAT registered seller in the EU will receive an additional VAT charge on the Chargeback Dispute Fee for each chargeback dispute. For more information on chargebacks, see the Chargeback FAQ.

Fee Refund

If a transaction refund takes place, you will also be refunded the following fees, as applicable:

  • The Processing Fee you paid for this transaction
  • The Cross Border Fee, if applied to the respective transaction.

Please note that the Authorisation Fee and Chargeback Dispute Fee are non-refundable.
