How much money, if any, does Amazon charge for our skills?

I've been looking around trying to figure out what the fee structure is for the Echo skills. I can not find this information. Is there a fee structure? Can someone point me to this information? Apple is currently charging about 30% for apps in its app store. What does Amazon charge?

Well, if Amazon is charging the same amount as Apple, they'd be bringing in 30% of $0, because there's no paid marketplace. As skill creators, we are paid nothing by Amazon, and Amazon charges nothing to users, for now. That doesn't mean you aren't welcome to monetize in your own way (like by driving traffic to your website), just that there's no built-in mechanism.

@Galactoise, thank you. I was hoping that was true. We plan to give our app away for free and then monetize our service in other ways. I was worried Amazon would enforce some payment scheme. I am pleased to think they are not doing so.
