Editor's note: This blog was originally published on August 15, 2016. It has since been updated to include more current information and rates.

If you're like most online sellers today, then Amazon, eBay and other marketplaces are likely on your radar. When one-third of buyers now start their online journey on marketplaces, it's hard to ignore the potential opportunity of selling on them yourself.

However, it's equally important to understand the cost of doing business on each marketplace. This post breaks down the commission fees across Amazon, eBay, Walmart Marketplace and Jet.com. Commission is calculated from the total sales price (your item price plus shipping and handling, excluding any taxes) on each channel and typically varies by product category. Read on to see the breakdowns.

Amazon Commission Rates

Amazon's commission rates are called referral fees. Sellers will have to pay the greater of a referral fee or a per-item minimum referral fee. Before we dive in, we should note that there are two ways to sell on Amazon. You can either sell direct to consumer as a third-party (3P) marketplace seller or direct to Amazon (1P) as a supplier.

Referral fees apply to 3P sellers. Amazon may also charge additional service, promotional or closing fees depending on your category.

eBay Commission Rates

eBay's commission rates are fundamentally different due to "insertion fees," which are charged every time you publish a new listing. You typically get up to 50 "zero insertion fee" (a.k.a. free) listings each month as an individual seller, or more if you choose to create an eBay Store. Once you reach this threshold, you'll have to pay the per-listing insertion fee in addition to a "final value" fee every time your item sells.

Final Value Fees for eBay Stores

If you choose to buy a monthly subscription with eBay, you can open your own eBay Store. An eBay Store gives you discounted fees and additional tools to promote your business, alongside other perks. There are five main Store types with varying insertion fees:

  • Basic Store: $0.25
  • Premium: $0.10
  • Anchor: $0.05
  • Enterprise: $0.05
  • For all store types, listings in the Musical Instruments & Gear > Guitars & Basses category are not subject to insertion fees

Final Value fees are then charged according to the below schedules.

Walmart Commission Rates

One of the biggest perks about selling on Walmart Marketplace is that there are no setup, subscription or listing fees. Walmart only charges a referral fee for every sale you make.

Note that the product categories listed below are the ones in the Walmart Marketplace Retailer Agreement and do not match up perfectly with the categories you may use during item setup. You can always open up a case with Walmart Support if you feel that you're being charged the wrong referral fee; make sure to provide the Item ID and the product category that you believe applies.
