Selling plans

Amazon offers both Professional and Individual selling plans.

Professional selling plan

In the Professional selling plan, you pay a nonrefundable monthly subscription fee regardless of whether you list or sell anything. You don’t pay a per-item fee when an item sells. All other fees are charged as applicable.

The Professional selling plan gives you access to inventory tools to upload batch files and manage your orders through feeds and reports. These tools are beneficial to most medium- to large-size businesses.

For answers to common questions about this fee, go to Monthly subscription fee FAQ.

Individual selling plan

The Individual selling plan is for sellers who do not need access to inventory tools and reports for volume selling. Under the Individual selling plan, you do not pay a monthly subscription fee. You pay a per-item fee in addition to applicable fees. Learn more about the Individual selling plan.

Note: If you have no sales, you may still see a monthly subscription line item with a zero amount in your Payments (Settlement) Reports. This is because Amazon treats each selling plan as a renewable monthly subscription.
