What makes Fnac special Marketplace

Fnac commission Marketplace

Like most marketplaces, Fnac imposes two types of fees on its partner sellers:

  • A fixed monthly subscription of €49.99 excl. VAT (per marketplace ): this package gives you access to all the platform's functions and enables you to create your own Fnac shop window.
  • A commission on sales: A percentage of the sales you make on the platform is deducted before your turnover is paid out. The Fnac commission varies between 7% and 15%, depending on the product category and its condition (new, used, reconditioned).

The payment deadline for marketplace

On marketplaces, the money you generate through your online sales is not paid directly into your business bank account. It is first collected by the marketplace, then paid out periodically. On some sites, such as Amazon Marketplace, it can take up to 30 days from shipment to payment. On Fnac Marketplace, the average delay is 11 days. Even so, this represents a constraint, creating a cash flow gap.
