What's changing?

Effective from September 6, 2019:

  1. Fee Statement - Standard Program Fees:

  2. a. We have added a new Product Category, ‘Prime Wardrobe Purchases’ at the fixed Standard Program Fee rate of 0.0% for the DE Amazon Site.

    b. We have launched the Amazon Influencer Program in DE, FR, IT and ES. Participants in the Amazon Influencer Program will earn the Standard Program Fees as detailed in the corresponding rate cards. Below is a copy of the revised EU Fee Statement Appendix effective from September 6, 2019:

EU Fee Statement Appendix

Standard Program Fees may vary depending on whether a Qualifying Purchase occurs from a customer making a Direct Qualifying Purchase or an Indirect Qualifying Purchase and based on the amount of Qualifying Revenues for a Product Category. A “Direct Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in the same Product Category as the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. An “Indirect Qualifying Purchase” means a Qualifying Purchase of a Product in a different Product Category than the Product detail page linked to from the Special Link that resulted in that Qualifying Purchase. If a Special Link does not link to a Product detail page, then any resulting Qualifying Purchase will be an Indirect Qualifying Purchase. “Product Category” means the product category of the Product described in the tables below, as determined by us. We will determine the classification of Products in each category described in the Agreement.
