GetMyFeesEstimate

Returns the estimated fees for a list of products.

Description

The GetMyFeesEstimate operation takes a list of products and marketplaces returns the fees for those products in those marketplaces. You can call GetMyFeesEstimate for a set of products before setting prices on those products. Your prices can then take estimated fees into account. You must specify your products by ASIN or SKU (not UPC, ISBN, etc).

With each product fees request, you must include an original identifier. This identifier is included in the fees estimate so you can correlate a fees estimate with an original request.

This operation allows up to 20 product requests in a single batch. For more information on processing the result, see Processing bulk operation requests.

Note: The estimated fees returned by this API are not guaranteed. Actual fees may vary.

For more information on fees, see Selling on Amazon Fee Schedule and FBA features and fees on Seller Central.

Availability

This operation is available in all marketplaces.
