"The Amazon Honor System does not charge registration fees, set-up fees,
or fixed participation fees. We do, however, charge
transaction fees based on the amount of money you receive. The
fee schedule is very simple. For each payment you receive, we will
charge $0.15 plus 15% of the total transaction amount. The person
making a payment is not charged any fees at all."
'Amazon Honor System' is a trademark.
