Calculate Amazon listing prices and make sure you always profit on Amazon
The Amazon Profit Calculator allows you to enter the profit you would like to make on an item (fixed and/or percentage based) and then generates the listing price that will allow you to make that profit when you sell on Amazon.
The calculator uses the seller rates from Amazon UK, and also applies a closing fee if appropriate. As you will see you enter all the other costs that impact the final price - postage, VAT and so on. If you are using FBA then that can go in as the Postage cost. And if you have any other third party costs then you can enter these as percentage based or as a fixed value.
The Amazon Profit Calculator is there to help you run your business profitably and to ensure you consider all the costs.
This Amazon selling fees calculator calculates the perfect Amazon listing price based on your business requirements. It uses the various percentage fees that Amazon UK charges as referral fees. And it also ensures that if Amazon charge a Closing Fee when an item is sold that, that is also added in the eventual price.
The formula we use for our Amazon Profit Calculator is explained above and also in our ecommerce handbook. You can use the above Amazon price calculator or you could use the formula within a spreadsheet if that is easier for you.
It uses a formula we developed and documented in our ecommerce handbook. If you like algebra then check out the handbook to see how we came up with it. Rather than take you through the proof, lets take you through the steps.
Step 1: What's the cost of the item (net of VAT).
Step 2: You might want to add a fixed amount as a profit. If you do, then this is the point to enter it.
Step 3: Whether or not you added a fixed amount as a profit, you can also enter a percentage mark up. Maybe you want to generate 20% as a profit based on the cost price.
Step 4: Make sure to add in your Postage and Packaging. Is it First Class or is it Fulfilled By Amazon, add the costs in here. We have Royal Mail UK Standard Postage and Amazon Domestic FBA Calculators you can use separately.
Step 5: Next you need to choose the category you are listing in on Amazon UK.
Step 6: Now you need to enter any additional % fee you may be charged on the sale. This can be left at 0 if you have no other percentage based fees.
Step 7: Enter any per transaction fees, this could be a 3rd Party fulfillment fee for instance.
Step 8: Enter the VAT level. Standard UK VAT is 20%, Books are 0% and so on.
Step 9: And finally let's check if you are required to pay the Amazon Closing Fee. So tick the box if you sell in one of the categories listed in Step 9.
And you are done.
