If an item is returned by the buyer, how much am I out?
Thank you for the article. Can you clarify this scenario? Suppose I sell a printed item similar to a deck of playing cards, Prime eligible, for $9.99. I gather that Amazon would charge $3.30 referral plus $2.41 FBA, total $5.71 per item and I get $4.29 profit.
If an item is returned by the buyer am I out the purchase price of $9.99 plus $5.71, so $15.70?
Correct, Amazon doesn’t refund the seller or FBA fees, plus it’s moving toward blanket free returns and you’ll be charged for return shipping fees, too. That’s something to be aware of when considering selling on Amazon.
