Pay with Amazon Fees

The Fee Schedule for Amazon Payments Accounts appears below. The Processing Fee is based on a percentage of the transaction amount and is 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.

* Monthly Payment Volume is based on the total average transaction payment volume processed by Amazon Payments for the three months preceding the application date. Other conditions may apply.

Amazon Payments charges fees based on the Fee Schedule applicable to you at the time the order is placed.

For example: A Processing Fee of 3.4% plus an Authorisation Fee of £0.20 is charged when the purchase is successfully authorised and processed. A £0.20 Authorisation Fee will also be charged when a successful authorisation expires where the payment has not yet been captured.

If a £10 purchase is made on your website, your Processing Fee would be £0.34, according to our standard rate.  We would also charge an Authorisation Fee of £0.20. The total fee for this transaction would be £0.54, provided that the payment was captured before the authorisation expired.

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 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 Cross Border Fee, if applied to the respective transaction.

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