Is it that the non-operating airline has to pay the operator for the right to put their # on those flights, or the operator would simply have people booking through them if they're going to be riding in their metal?
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

Generally the airline that actually carries the passenger gets the revenue. The question people usually ask is why bother having the codeshare then if someone else gets the revenue. Well some of the reasons are:
You get to keep control of your customer by being able to offer them more destinations.
It allows your partner the same priviledge, and you get the revenue when it is their passenger flying with you.

As with any fare, with any carrier, so many seats in each fare class are alloted to code share partners for each flight. In your example of ORD-AMS, UA allocated a certain number of seats to US codeshares; the fare difference you are seeing is coming from US's system as the cheaper fares allocated for that city pair are already booked. As a US frequent flier, you would have to book code share at the higher fare to get your FF miles, and United would keep the revenue.
Oh how I long for the day when the skies were truly Friendly!

Codeshare pricing can work on different principles as determined and agreed upon by the two signing carriers. It may be a revenue share like LH/AC on Germany/Canada vv routes or it may be credited to the operating carrier like in case of LH/UA codeshares. It can also be like the AI codeshares with various international carriers operating from India whereby they have a commercial agreement in which a certain block of seats usually 30-55 depending on aircraft type is given to AI at an agreed price. Sometimes the share is more than just a pound of flesh like in the case of AI/VS where VS actually operates on AI's traffic rights into LON. These are only some examples, there are various other types as well where each airline fixes its share with the codeshare partner on mutually agreed terms for various routes and periods.
