Amazon Payments Fees

Amazon Payments offers low, predictable pricing. You only pay when you process payment for a transaction made on your website or, in the case of Amazon Local Register, through your Amazon Local Register card reader. No monthly charges, long-term contracts, or hidden fees.

Amazon Payments fees are transaction-based and calculated on a per capture basis. Your fee is based on a percentage of the transaction amount plus a per-transaction fee for most products. Our standard rate (excluding Amazon Flexible Payments Services and Amazon Local Register) is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.

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

Transaction Amount Percentage of Transaction: 2.9% Per-Transaction Fee: $.30 Total Processing Fee
$10 $.29 $.30 $.59

If you process more than $3,000 a month with us, have micro-transactions (those less than $10), or are a non-profit, you may be eligible for a discount. Contact Us if you qualify.
