2019 Fulfilment by Amazon fulfilment fee changes

Note: Links to all 2019 selling fee changes are also available at 2019 Fulfillment by Amazon fee changes (Europe).

Fulfillment by Amazon fees across the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain will be adjusted to reflect the changing costs of fulfillment, transportation and customer service.

The Fulfillment by Amazon fulfillment fee changes take effect on April 1, 2019, and the Multi-Channel Fulfillment fee changes take effect on June 1, 2019.

  • Local fulfillment fee adjustments: We will adjust fulfillment fees for products sold on Amazon marketplaces and shipped from a local fulfillment centre. We also will reduce fulfillment fees on selected, smaller size items and weight tiers in some marketplaces, which could result in better margins for your products in those size tiers. For details, see the FBA fulfillment fee tables below.
  • Pan-European FBA surcharge for oversize products: In the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Spain, we will introduce a surcharge on oversize items in addition to local fulfillment fees, to reflect the higher costs of shipping these products to customers throughout Europe. Standard-size units fulfilled as part of Pan-European FBA will continue to be subject to the local fulfillment fee in the marketplace where the product was purchased.
  • European Fulfillment Network (EFN) fee changes: We will adjust our cross-border EFN fulfillment fees for products sold on Amazon marketplaces and shipped across European country borders to reflect the cost of fulfillment from one country in Europe to another. For details, see the FBA fulfillment fee tables below.
  • Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) fee updates: We will adjust our fulfillment fees for Multi-Channel Fulfillment to better align them with FBA fulfillment fees. For more information, refer to 2019 Multi-Channel Fulfillment fee changes.

We welcome your feedback on these changes at eu-fba-fee-announce-feedback@amazon.com.

You can also preview the new fulfillment fees for standard-size and oversize items through the FBA Revenue Calculator.

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

2As communicated in June 2015, we 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)

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 storage, fulfillment, transportation and customer service. When we need to increase fees, we announce these changes in advance to help give you enough time to make business decisions.

Why is a surcharge being introduced on oversize units fulfilled under the Pan-European program?

The surcharge on oversize units is being added to reflect the higher cost of shipping these products to customers throughout Europe.

What is the definition of an oversize item?

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.
