Amazon Marketplace

Amazon Marketplace is's fixed-price online marketplace which enables sellers to offer new and used items alongside Amazon's regular offerings. Customers can buy those items directly from third-party sellers. The Marketplace uses's software infrastructure.[1] charges the buyer's credit card and sends his or her payment to the seller, but does not pass along any credit-card information.

The Marketplace is available on Amazon sites in over 60 countries.[2] Some sellers do not ship internationally.

Sellers may sell their items using either an "Individual Account" or, for an additional monthly subscription fee, a "Professional Seller" account. Individual Accounts may add the "Pro Merchant Option," but Professional Sellers are required to have the "Pro-Merchant Option."

The "Pro Merchant Option" costs $39.99 per month; it eliminates the $0.99 per-item sales fee. Other sales fees are still charged. These consist of a percentage commission fee and a flat-rate closing fee.
