For example if you are non US individual/company selling kindle books on amazon.com, amazon will withhold 30% tax. There are a bunch of steps you can follow to reduce/eliminate this withholding. See this post for details:
Non-US Self-Publisher? Tax Issues Don’t Need to be Taxing | Catherine, Caffeinated

With kindle e-books, the income is actually a royalty. Physical products might be treated differently.

So my question is for international sellers selling physical products on amazon.com, is there any 30% withholdings on your payments from amazon.com?

Are you trying to magically create some loophole where you don't pay taxes? Because if that's what you created in your mind after reading some silly blog, you need to rewire your brain.

There is nothing magic here. A non-US person with no business presense in the USA does not owe income taxes in the USA. They may owe taxes in their home country.

Dude
Amazon don't deduct taxes from your earnings?
As you are based outside the the US you don't pay US taxes either.
You pay taxes on your income in your home nation.
Ok

The 30 % could be the commission ?

At least its 30% for Kindle Accessories. If you sell Kindle Books I you also have a high comission to pay.

when you sell on amazon theyll at some point,either at the time of signup or else later at some point give you the tax interview.When you state that youre an individual or company based outside us theyll get your details and you will certidy that you arent us based and so not any tax incidence there.However you do owe taxes at origin country
that tax interview will take 2 3 minutes for you to fill
