    Note: If you don't see the option to modify your selling plan, you may need to close other accounts. Please see Accounts that require a Professional selling plan below before moving to the next step.
  2. On the My Services page, click Downgrade located in the Sell on Amazon section.
    Note: If you have an error message that “You do not have permission to change your subscription status” at My Services page, please verify that the review of your identity verification documents is completed. To switch a selling plan, sellers are required that the identify verification documents are submitted. For more detail, see Submitting Identity Verification Documents help page.


    • Downgrading from a Professional selling plan to an Individual selling plan may result in a change in your payment cycle.
    • If you have registered through global registration , you can downgrade in all stores at once by selecting to downgrade in “All Regions.” Alternatively, you can choose to downgrade in the “Current Region”, which will downgrade the store(s) in the current region: North American stores (United States, Canada, and Mexico), European stores ( United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, and Spain), Japan, or Australia.
    • If you choose to downgrade only in one region, you will still be subject to monthly Professional selling fees if you still have a Professional account and active listings in other store(s).
    • When you switch to an Individual selling plan, your current listings will continue to be available for sale unless you set them to Inactive in your Listings Status for holidays and other absences page. Deactivating listings alone will not switch your selling plan. Be sure to switch your selling plan if you want to avoid additional monthly fees.
    • If you're enrolled in the US tax calculation service, see the Downgrade or upgrade and tax calculation service page prior to switching your plan.
  3. Review the terms on the next page, then click Confirm Selling Plan Change to accept the terms and switch your plan

After completing the above steps, you will receive an email confirmation that will indicate your selling plan was changed.

Important: The confirmation e-mail will provide information regarding the new fee schedule to your current listings, including the Referral Fees and Variable Closing Fees (if applicable).
