EU Associates Programme Advertising Fee Schedule

This Associates Programme Advertising Fee Schedule (“Schedule”) is part of the Operating Agreement that governs your participation in the Amazon EU Associates Programme. This Schedule describes the advertising fee rates you may earn as a participant in the Programme. It also describes the limitations that apply to earning advertising fees on certain Products. From time to time, we may modify this Schedule in accordance with Section 15 of the Operating Agreement. All capitalised terms used below that are not defined on this page have the meanings given to them in the Operating Agreement.

During each calendar month, you may earn advertising fees for Qualifying Purchases (see Section 7 of the Operating Agreement). Most advertising fees are calculated as a percentage of Qualifying Revenues based on the tables below and are subject to the limitations described in the “Limitations on Advertising Fee Rates for Certain Products” section below. We also may offer advertising fees in the form of bounties or other special offers as described in the “Special Offers and Promotions” section below. “Qualifying Revenues” mean amounts we receive from customers’ Qualifying Purchases, excluding shipping, handling, and gift-wrapping fees, taxes (including sales tax and VAT), and service charges, and less any rebates, credit card processing fees, returns, and bad debt.

The Programme’s standard advertising fee structure for each Amazon Site is described in Tables 1 and 2 below. The advertising fee rates you may earn will vary depending on the number and category of Products that are shipped, streamed, or downloaded (as applicable) in a given calendar month that constitute Qualifying Purchases. We will determine the classification of Products in each category described in the Operating Agreement.

Special Offers and Promotions

From time to time, we may run special or limited time offers or promotions under which you may earn advertising fees on Products or categories or Products that were previously excluded from earning advertising fees, or you may earn increased advertising fee rates from those set forth in this Schedule. We may notify you about special offers or promotions by updating this page or through emails, blog posts, or other means.
