5 ways Amazon could be overcharging you


If you’re selling on Amazon, you’ll probably take it for granted that you won’t end up paying more than you should. However, it is important that you check your statements and make sure you are not being charged more than you should be as you could be liable for a refund. These are some ways Amazon could be overcharging you and it is important to be aware of these.

Seller fees

Amazon have fees detailed on their website, so keep note of these if you are selling on the site and make sure you know what you should be charged and what you are charged. These could differ without you being aware, so keep track and request a refund if the figures are different.

Damaged goods

If your items are damaged through no fault of your own, this means you should receive reimbursements for damaged amazon inventory. Amazon have been known to take admin and other fees from the total amount refunded to you, so be aware of what you should be credited and what you end up receiving, as these could differ and you need to keep track of this.


If replacements have been sent to the customer, but you have not received the original, you should make a claim to Amazon. You should be credited back for this. Contact Amazon if this is not the case, as it is their responsibility to make sure this is taken care of.

Weight handling fee

It has been known that in some cases, Amazon have stated the weight of items as being heavier than they are, thus leading to overcharging. It is important to be aware of the weight of any items you are selling and make sure you are not paying any more than you should be.

Return fees

If an item has been returned, you should receive the original fee back. It is important to check this and make sure you receive the correct amount. If you don’t, you are entitled to contact Amazon to make sure you are credited with the amount you are due.
