HERE ARE SOME EXAMPLES.
1. This Book, selling at $10
It’s a normal book, with dimensions 6 x 1.1 x 9 inches. FBA costs $4.79.
2. This Lamp, selling at $25
It’s an Ikea lamp. FBA costs $10.35. Do take note that the more expensive the item is, the more commission/”referral fee” Amazon charges on the item; however, it does seem to be the case that the higher the selling price, the less the referral fee is as a percentage of the selling price.
3. This Bike, selling at $179
It’s a road bike. Here, the weight brings up the cost of FBA a lot; it’s $35.38 for the weight handling, to be exact. FBA costs $70.63 for this bike. It weights in at 29.5 pounds.
