Amazon recently announced changes to the way that Professional Selling Plan subscription fees are billed if you have active listings in more than one country or region with merged accounts. They are updating the Selling on Amazon Fee schedule to reflect that if you have merged global accounts, your subscription fee will be divided across these accounts, and will be charged in the currency of each Amazon store. You will be charged subscription fees only where you have active listings during the current month.
The good news is that they have now announced that Professional Selling Plan subscription fees won’t be changing if you sell in European countries – you will continue to be charged a subscription fee in just one European country. However if you have a Professional Selling Plan in other countries you may see changes.
Regardless of the number of Amazon stores you sell through, your total subscription fees will still be limited to no more than the equivalent $39.99 US per month (exclusive of tax, except in Mexico and Brazil, and any foreign transaction fees charged by your bank or credit issuer). However, you may see these fees billed to your accounts in a different way:
- All subscription fees will be billed on the same day of the month rather than on the monthly anniversary of your registration in each country or region. To align your billing day, we will make a one-time extension of your subscriptions, if necessary, at no additional charge.
- Subscription fees for your Americas-region accounts (United States, Canada, Mexico, and Brazil) will be billed in each country in which you have active listings on your billing day rather than being billed in just one country. The total amount billed will not increase as a result.
- If you sell in our European stores, you will continue to be charged a subscription fee in just one European country.
