Frequently asked questions

Why is FBA changing its fees and its fee structure?

The changes to FBA fees and the fee structure are driven by recent changes in the business environment, including the rising costs of fulfillment, transportation and order delivery.

When do these changes take effect?

The new fulfillment fees are in effect from June 16, 2021.

Will the FBA fulfillment fee changes apply to products ordered before June 16, 2021?

The FBA fulfillment fees are calculated and charged when shipments leave Amazon fulfillment centers. As a result, if a product is ordered before June 16, 2021, but is shipped on or after that date, the new FBA fulfillment fees will apply.
