Amazon Pay Fees

Transaction Fees

Amazon Pay fees are transaction-based and have a processing and authorization component. The transaction fee is composed of a domestic processing fee of 2.9% and an authorization fee of $0.30, plus tax where applicable, charged when the purchase is successfully authorized and processed.

For example, if a $10 transaction is made on your website, your total transaction fee would be $.59, according to our standard rate:

Transaction Amount

Domestic Processing Fee: 2.9%

Authorization Fee: $.30

Authorization Fee

The $0.30 authorization fee, included in the total transaction fee described above, will be collected when the transaction is successfully processed or when a successful authorization that has not been captured is closed or expires.

Cross-Border Processing Fee

If you receive payment from a payment method issued outside of the U.S., we will collect a 3.9% cross-border processing fee and the authorization fee described above, plus tax where applicable. The 3.9% cross-border processing fee is charged only when the transaction is captured. For example, if the customer's credit card was issued outside of the U.S., the cross-border fee will be applied to your transaction.

For example, if a $10 cross-border transaction is made on your website, your total transaction fee would be $.69, according to our standard rate:

Cross-Border Processing Fee: 3.9%

Authorization Fee: $.30

Disputed Chargeback Fee

If you request to dispute a chargeback claim that is not covered under our Payment Protection Policy (see section B6 of the Amazon Payments Customer Agreement), we will assess a fee of $20.00 plus tax where applicable. For more information on chargebacks, see Handling Chargebacks.

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

  • The domestic processing fee (for example, the 2.9% fee)

Please note that the Authorization Fee and Disputed Chargeback Fee are non-refundable.
