    Just sold an item through Amazon Associates via a marketplace seller for £849 but only got £7 in commission, I thought it was 5%?

    Anyone any ideas if this is capped for marketplace sellers?

    Ah just realised this is in the wrong section, mods please move to marketplace forum, thanks.

    Yeah it was for an oak dining table and chairs.

    Are there any caps on sellers fees? Would the seller pay a % fee based on the full £850 or would that be capped at something sensible?

    If the sellers fees are capped then it makes sense that the affiliate fees are capped for each item.

    I read on their website that in the UK it is capped at £7, I've also received £7 commission for the sales of a few ps4 & xbox one console bundles.

    Pretty much "money for nothing", regardless. They may cap it at 7 to keep people from over promoting, having people really aggressive about things. Even some offering kickbacks - buy through me, I'll give you a fiver refund, etc. if the commissions got to high and the associates had the claws come out.

    Still go-round at the Burger Barn you didn't have before. :)
