Join Peter Kent for an in-depth discussion in this video Shipping credits, part of Selling on the Amazon Marketplace.
- Now let's look at shipping credits.…We're assuming that you're not using FBA.…You're shipping the product yourself.…Now, if you have a professional account,…and have customized the shipping fee,…and Amazon is going to pass on…to you the purchase price of the product…and the shipping fee you specified,…minus, of course, the referral fee and variable closing fee.…But if you're not setting your shipping price,…Amazon's gonna set the shipping fee for you…and pass the fee on to you in the form of a shipping credit.…In the case of a camera, that fee could be,…for example, $7.99.…
You can quickly see the standard Amazon shipping fee…for many products by scrolling down the merchant page…and seeing what the most common charge is.…If it costs more to ship than the credit,…that's your problem so do your math carefully.…For example, if you sell a book…and the buyer chooses standard shipping,…Amazon will give you $3.99 to pay for shipping.…If you sell software and the buyer…chose expedited shipping, then Amazon…will provide a $6.99 credit and so on.…
