High-Volume Listing Fee

High-Volume Listing fee Overview

Beginning on February 1, 2015, we introduced High-Volume Listing Fee which will be applied to all sellers. This fee is applied to active non-media SKUs.

Fee Details

Monthly High-Volume Listing Fee is calculated based on the number of active non-media SKUs you offer for sale on The High-Volume Listing Fee will only apply if you exceed 2 million SKUs in a given month and it will be applied to your highest number of SKUs above 2 million at any time during that month. For each active non-media SKU over 2 million, a fee of 0.05 JPY per SKU will be applied. For example, if a total of 3 million active non-media SKUs were made available by you during the month, the fee applied for that month will be 50,000 JPY.

3,000,000 - 2,000,000 = 1,000,000 SKU

1,000,000 SKU × 0.05 JPY = 50,000 JPY

The fee will be calculated monthly and it will be shown in the next month’s Payments report. For instance, if you incur the fee during February 2015, you will see the charge for the High-Volume Listing Fee in your March 2015 statement.

Fees on this page is tax exclusive. Amazon charges sellers the consumption tax amounts for transactions with respect to the Selling on Amazon Services.
