Suppose you receive the following single-item order for a book with standard shipping
|Cost of book:||10.00 € (item price set by you)|
|+ Standard Shipping:||3.00 € (rate set by Amazon)|
|Buyer's Total:||13.00 €|
For this order, you would have paid a Referral Fee of 1.50 EUR (15% of product charge).
You then create a partial refund in the amount of 5.00 EUR of the product charges. The amount returned to you is calculated as a percentage of the Referral Fee, paid on the product charge, not including shipping. The Variable Closing Fee is retained by Amazon.
5.00 EUR (partial refund) / 10.00 EUR (product charge) = 50%
50% (percentage refunded) x 1.50 EUR (amount of Referral Fee) = 0.75 EUR (credit for refund)
