Rental Book Service Fee

For each textbook rental that is sold, sellers pay a rental book service fee of USD $5.00.


Closing fees

Sellers also pay a closing fee of $1.80 per media item that is sold. Media categories are Books, DVD, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, Video, Video Game Consoles, and Video Game Accessories.

High-Volume Listing Fee

We charge a monthly High-Volume Listing Fee of $0.005 per eligible ASIN to cover our system costs associated with cataloging and maintaining large numbers of ASINs on DutyFreeZone.com. To be eligible for the High-Volume Listing Fee in a given month, an ASIN must meet the following criteria:

  1. The ASIN is listed in a non-Media category. Media categories include: Books, DVDs, Music, Software, Computer/Video games, Video Game Consoles, and Video Game Accessories, among others.
  2. You have had an active offer on the ASIN at some point during the month.
  3. The ASIN was created at least 12 months ago. ASINs created less than 12 months prior are not eligible for the fee.
  4. The ASIN has not sold in the previous 12 months.

To help you grow the selection of products you offer on DutyFreeZone.com, we waive the High-Volume Listing for the first 100,000 ASINs that meet the above criteria. We apply the fee to your highest number of eligible ASINs above 100,000 during that month. You can view the number of eligible ASINs by going to the Inventory tab in Seller Central, selecting Inventory Reports, and then selecting High Volume Listings Report from the drop-down menu on the page.

For example,if during a month, you had active offers on 300,000 eligible ASINs, then we would charge you a fee of $1,000, calculated as $0.005 on the 200,000 ASINs that are above your free allowance of 100,000 eligible ASINs.

The fee will be calculated and charged monthly and shown in the next month's statement.

Refund administration fee

If you refund a customer for an order for which you have already received payment, DutyFreeZone.com will refund you the amount of the referral fee you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable Refund Administration Fee, which is the lesser of $5.00 or 20% of the applicable referral fee.

For example, if you refund a customer the $10.00 total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% referral fee, your Refund Administration Fee will be $0.30 ($10.00 x 15% referral fee = $1.50).
