The Professional Selling Plan is a monthly subscription service that provides access to a suite of tools and benefits, including bulk listings, Amazon Marketplace Web Services (Amazon MWS), automated pricing, advance business reports, customisable shipping rates, and eligibility for top placement on detail pages, among others. The Professional Selling Plan monthly subscription fee varies by country and starts on the date you sign up.

Your fee can vary depending on whether you have linked your accounts. When you sell globally across multiple accounts, you are eligible for a subscription fee discount if you link your accounts. Your monthly fee will be the lower of (1) the sum of the subscription fees for each country you sell in or (2) the subscription fee cap of $39.99 USD per month. For example, if you maintain Professional Selling Plan accounts in IN ($0 subscription fee) and MX (600 MXN/$30.43 USD subscription fee), you would pay a subscription fee of $30.43 USD per month. If you maintain Professional Selling Plan accounts in North America ($39.99 USD subscription fee), Europe (€39.99/$45.94 USD subscription fee) and Japan (¥4,900/$44.18 USD subscription fee), you would just pay $39.99 USD, a monthly savings of $90.12 USD (varies based on exchange rate). Please note if you do not link your accounts, you will pay the full fee for each account.
