Amazon Payments Fees

Amazon Payments offers low, predictable pricing. You only pay when you process payment for a transaction made on your website. No monthly charges, long-term contracts, or hidden fees.

Amazon Payments fees are transaction-based. Your fee is based on a percentage of the transaction amount plus a per-transaction fee. Our standard rate is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction for transactions of $10 or more. To help lower the cost of accepting payments, we offer discounts for volume, micropayments and processing donations. See below for details on our fees and discounts.

The fees on this page apply to all Amazon Payments products except for Amazon Flexible Payments Service. To see fees for Amazon Flexible Payments Service, click here.

Our standard transactional rate is 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction for transactions of $10 or more. For example, if a $10 transaction is made on your website, your processing fee would be $.59, according to our standard rate.

Volume Discounts

For qualifying accounts, we offer volume discounts on processing fees for all transactions equal to or more than $10. Discount levels for an account are based on the average transaction payment volume for the three months preceding the application date. If you have an average monthly transaction volume of $3,000 or more for three consecutive months, you may qualify for discounted processing fees on transactions of $10 or more. Volume discounts are available by application only. Contact us to apply. Please include a brief description of your business and the reason for your discount request. If your application is approved, we will notify you of your new rate plan.

Average Monthly Transaction Volume Percentage of Transaction Per-Transaction Fee
$100,000 and more 1.9% $0.30
$10,000-$99,999.99 2.2% $0.30
$3,000-$9,999.99 2.5% $0.30
$0-$2,999.99 2.9% $0.30

Micropayment Discount

For transactions less than $10, you pay 5.0% of the order total, plus $.05 per order. If you typically accept payments of less than $10, this can save you money.

This discount is automatically applied for transactions <$10. For example, if you usually accept $5 transactions, you save $.145 per transaction with our micropayment discount – which can add up.

Nonprofit Discount

To make online giving more cost-effective, 501(c)3 organizations that use Amazon Simple Pay to process donations are eligible for a discounted rate of 2.2% + $.30 per transaction on transactions of $10 or more.

For example, if you receive a $100 donation, the nonprofit discount saves you $.70 in processing fees.
