If you’re new to selling on Amazon (or a new seller in general), it can be hard to get a proper grasp on how much revenue you’re making. After marketplace fees, shipping costs and any other transactional deduction, it can get confusing figuring out your actual profit. Amazon, one of the more popular marketplaces for online merchants, has a fairly wide array of fees depending on if you’re an individual seller, pro merchant or using FBA (Fulfillment By Amazon). Running through the numbers on your own or in excel can be time consuming (not to mention a headache in the making). To avoid the frustration, we’ve found a few free calculators to help you determine how much you’re really making per sale.
Amazon Marketplace Fee and Profit Calculator – Select from category of product types (consumer electronics, kitchen, etc), shipping method (ex. domestic standard), whether you are a Pro Merchant and more to calculate your net profit after shipping and fees. There is even a place to input your desired profit in order to see where you may need to adjust.
FBA Revenue Calculator – Populate real-time cost comparisons between your own fulfillment expenses and Amazon’s offering for orders fulfilled directly through Amazon.com.
Amazon Fee Calculator – Much like the first calculator, this tool provided by Ecommerce Bytes is designed to help sellers determine their total profit on items after shipping and fees. Though it’s only in beta (testing) today, its multiple options for providing transactional information make for a robust calculation.
