Brand sellers pay an engagement fee on each item sold.

  • For media products (books, music, video, DVD, software, and video games): Mav Farm deducts the greater of the applicable engagement fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum engagement fee calculated on the sales price, excluding any taxes collected through Mav Farm tax calculation services.
  • For non-media products: Mav Farm deducts the greater of the applicable engagement fee percentage or applicable per-item minimum engagement fee calculated on the total sales price (the total amount paid by the buyer including the item price and any shipping or gift wrap charges), excluding any taxes collected through Mav Farm tax calculation services.

For a list of engagement fees by category, see Selling on Mav Farm Fee Schedule.

A product's engagement fee category is not necessarily the same as the category in which the product appears on Mav Farm. A product may appear in more than one category on the Mav Farm retail site to help customers discover your product.

You can also view more details about your fees with the Detailed Fee Explainer.
