Sellers revolt as Amazon hikes fees for traders by up to 70 per cent
Emma BamfordIt overtook eBay as the preferred marketplace for traders to use to sell their goods. But online retailers may be soon returning to eBay in droves after Amazon put up its fees for traders by as much as 70 per cent.
Third-party traders, who list their wares on Amazon.co.uk, are seeing the cut they have to give to Amazon rise from seven per cent to 12 per cent from April 4 – an increase of 71 per cent.
In some sectors, the proportion they lose is even greater – for example, people selling car parts through Amazon.co.uk will see their fees increase to 15 per cent from from 12 per cent.
