When your item sells, Amazon collects the amount paid by the buyer (including the item price and any delivery, gift wrap or other charges).
Sellers pay a Referral Fee on each item sold.
Items in some categories have a per-item minimum referral fee as listed below (for example, sellers pay the greater of the referral fee or the per-item minimum referral fee).
For all products, Amazon deducts the applicable referral fee percentage calculated on the total sales price, excluding any taxes calculated through Amazon tax calculation services. The total sales price is the total amount paid by the buyer, including the item price and any delivery or gift wrapping charges.
Referral Fees vary by category, as listed below.

If you refund a customer for an order for which you have already received payment, Amazon will refund you the amount of the referral fee you paid for the item(s), minus the applicable Refund Administration Fee, which is the lesser of 15 SAR or 20% of the applicable referral fee.
For example, if you refund a customer the 10.00 SAR total sales price of an item in a category with a 15% referral fee, your Refund Administration Fee will be 0.30 SAR (10.00 SAR x 15% referral fee = 1.50 SAR). More details on Refund Credits and Administration Fees.
