Selling plans

Note: The following is for informational purposes only. See the applicable fees for each plan here.

Amazon offers both Professional and Individual selling plans.

Professional selling plan

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.

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.

Switch to a different selling plan

You can switch between selling plans whenever you want.
