Amazon Doubles Webstore Fees
Internet retailers that are using Amazon's Webstore product will see dramatically higher fees starting in 2014.
The monthly fee for an Amazon Webstore is currently $39.99 but will rise to $79 per month. The new cost structure will however eliminate the $39.99 monthly Pro Merchant fee. Starting in February, pro-merchants and Webstore's will both pay the $79.99 monthly fee. Webstore merchants will also be charged a 30-cent transaction fee plus a 2.9% fee on all transactions.
Amazon is also raising fees for merchants who use its FBA Fulfillment by Amazon service as recently reported. Those new fees take effect on February 18, 2014.
