Fees and Pricing - NOTES

When your item is being bought, the MarketPlace Admin otherwise known as the HubEye collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the item price and any shipping, gift wrap, or other charges).

HubEye will deduct the applicable referral fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum referral fee calculated on:

(i) the item price, and:

(ii) any gift wrap charges, in each case excluding any taxes collected through MarketPlace Africa tax calculation services, plus a variable closing fee. Sellers who do not pay a monthly subscription fee also pay a per item fee for each item sold.

MarketPlace Africa shipping rates apply to all items sold. Only Professional sellers can offer gift wrap.

See Shipping Rates and Services for a table of shipping credits.

Here's how it works:

Item price
+ Shipping charges paid by the buyer
+ Gift wrap charges paid by the buyer
- Referral fee (calculated on the item price and any gift wrap charges paid by the buyer)
- Variable closing fee
- ZAR25.00 per item fee (waived for sellers who pay a subscription fee)
-------------------------------------
= Total deposited to seller account

Referral Fees

Sellers pay a referral fee on each item sold. Items in several categories have a per-item minimum referral fee as listed on the pricing table (i.e., sellers pay the greater of the referral fee percentage or the per-item minimum referral fee).

The table below describes the referral fees and variable closing fees by category.

Transfer of seller's money to seller's bank account is initiated every 30 days.

Pricing

You may list items at any price you feel is fair, regardless of Marketplace Africa price structure or list price, within the limits set by the HubEye (MarketPlace Africa Admin), and so long as your price adheres to our General Pricing Rule.

Limits: Sellers on the Individual selling plan may not list items at a price in excess of R35000. Sellers on the Professional selling plan may not list items at a price in excess of R300,000. These price limits do not apply to Collectibles and Vehicle listings.

General Pricing Rule: By our General Pricing rule, you must always ensure that the item price and total price of an item you list on Amazon.com are at or below the item price and total price at which you offer and/or sell the item via any other online sales channel.
