1Fulfillment fees are applied based on the marketplace where the item is sold.

2We may review EFN fees and make adjustments with a 30-day notice when the FX rate change between the British pound and the euro exceeds 5% on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.

3Sellers with German FBA inventory who do not participate in the Fulfillment Network Expansion (Central Europe Program) authorizing Amazon to store and process German FBA inventory in Amazon's fulfillment network, including Poland and the Czech Republic, are charged an additional £0.45/€0.50 fulfillment fee per FBA unit shipped from German fulfillment centers. Sellers who are part of the Pan-European FBA program are not charged this fee.

Product types and size tiers

Use the following table to determine product type:

  • Standard-size: A packaged unit that weighs 12 kg or less, measures 45 cm or less on its longest side, 34 cm or less on its median side and 26 cm or less on its shortest side.
  • Oversize*: A packaged unit that exceeds any of the following measurements is oversize: 12 kg, 45 cm on its longest side, 34 cm on its median side or 26 cm on its shortest side.

To identify your product’s size tier, take its dimensions (in centimeters) and its shipping weight (in grams), and compare them using the table below. If your product's package dimensions on any side or its shipping weight exceed any of the maximum values listed, move to the next largest tier.

Shipping weight is equal to the weight of your unit or units plus our packaging weight.

Maximum length (cm) Maximum width (cm) Maximum height (cm) Maximum shipping weight (g) Packaging weight (g)

Shipping weight equals your unit's weight plus our packaging weight. The shipping weight total is rounded up to the nearest 1 g. Our packaging weight will be: small envelope, 20 g; standard envelope, 40 g; large envelope, 40 g; standard parcel, 100 g; and 240 g for small oversize, standard oversize and large oversize items.

All fees are exclusive of VAT and other taxes that are payable by the seller. The examples above are only a guide in evaluating FBA. Amazon does not warrant the accuracy of the calculations.

FBA minimum long-term storage fee changes

Starting April 1, 2020, the minimum long-term storage fee (€0.10/£0.10 per unit) will be eliminated in Amazon European marketplaces for non-media items stored in inventory for more than 365 days. The final charge for the fee will be for the March 15, 2020 inventory assessment date. The per-cubic-foot/meter long-term storage fee will remain unchanged, and the minimum long-term storage fee (€0.10/£0.10 per unit) will still apply to media items that have been in inventory for more than 365 days.

The long-term storage fee is in addition to the regular inventory storage fee and will not be charged if a request has been made to remove or dispose of the units prior to the monthly inventory assessment date.

FBA removal order fee changes

Starting April 1, 2020, we will change the fee structure for having inventory returned to you, for both local and cross-border removal orders. Removal orders will be charged based on the size and weight of the removed item. The rates for disposal orders are not changing.

We will continue to charge different rates for local and cross-border removals, but items fulfilled through Pan-European FBA will now be charged at the local rate if the return destination is in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy or Spain.

*Incremental weights are rounded up to the nearest 1,000 g.

Cross-border removal order fees

For cross-border removal orders, apart from changing the fee structure, we are also redefining the return destination regions. We currently divide countries into two regions, Western Europe and Central Europe. Starting April 1, 2020, we will be dividing these countries into two zones, Zone 1 and Zone 2.

Destination regions
Before April 1, 2020 Western Europe: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden Central Europe: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia

Starting April 1, 2020, removal order fees will be adjusted as follows:

Frequently asked questions

Why is FBA changing its fees?

FBA remains committed to providing the high-quality service and fast, free shipping expected by Amazon customers. To maintain this level of service, we periodically assess FBA fees and may consider adjusting our rates to reflect the changing costs of fulfillment, transportation and customer service. Our costs have increased significantly in 2019, primarily due to our largest ever one-year investment in FREE One-Day Delivery in FBA. Nevertheless, we have made only limited increases in our fulfillment fees as we identify opportunities to leverage our scale for further efficiencies.

Are there any other changes in storage fees apart from the elimination of the minimum long-term storage fees for non-media items?

No. There are no other changes in storage fees apart from the elimination of the minimum long-term storage fee (€0.10/£0.10 per unit) for non-media items.

Are there any changes to FBA Small and Light fulfillment fees?

No, there are currently no changes planned for FBA Small and Light fulfillment fees. We will provide prior notice for any future changes to FBA Small and Light fees.

Are there any changes to disposal order fees?

No. There are currently no changes in fees for disposal orders.

Are there any other changes to FBA fees?

Yes. We will start charging a prep fee for the Adult category in our United Kingdom marketplace. The fee will be £0.50 for standard-size and £1.00 for oversize items.

I do not sell through Pan-European FBA, and I pay local removal order fees when getting items returned cross-border to my home marketplace. What fee will I pay starting April 1, 2020?

If you do not use Pan-European FBA, cross-border removal orders to your home marketplace are currently charged the local removal order fee. Starting April 1, 2020, if you are not using Pan-European FBA, cross-border removal orders to your home marketplace will be charged cross-border removal order fees.
