2018 Fulfilment by Amazon fee changes (Europe)

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

The following changes are effective from April 26, 2018:

  • Change to Local Fulfilment Fees: We will adjust our fulfilment fees for products sold on Amazon marketplaces and shipped from a fulfilment centre in the same Amazon marketplace. Units fulfilled as part of the Pan-European programme will continue to be charged the local fulfilment fee from the marketplace in which the product was purchased. For more information, see Change to Fulfilment Fees below
  • Change to European Fulfilment Network (EFN) Fees: We will adjust our cross-border EFN fulfilment fees for products sold on Amazon marketplaces and shipped across European borders from a fulfilment centre in another Amazon marketplace in Europe. For more information, see Change to Fulfilment Fees below.
  • Change to Monthly Storage Fees: Monthly storage fees will be increased for inventory stored in European fulfilment centres. For more information, see Change to Monthly Storage Fees below.
  • Elimination of Zero Fee Fulfilment: The Zero Fee Fulfilment discount for standard-size items that sell for £300/€350 or more will be discontinued. Fulfilment fees based on the product size tier will apply. For more information, see Elimination of Zero Fee Fulfilment below.

The following change is effective from September 5, 2018:

  • Expansion of Returns Processing Fee into Jewellery, Watches and Luggage Categories: A Returns Processing Fee will be applied to customer-returned products in the Jewellery, Watches and Luggage categories, for which Amazon offers customers free return shipping. For more information, see Expansion of Returns Processing Fee below.

The following change is effective from October 9, 2018:

  • Introduction of Manual Processing Fee: To ensure that your shipments to Amazon fulfilment centres are received quickly and accurately, we will require you to provide box content information for each box sent to Amazon. We provide several tools to make it easier to provide box content information on all shipments. If you choose to not provide box content information, Amazon will manually process your shipment at the fulfilment centre and a Manual Processing Fee will apply for each unit. For more information, see Introduction of Manual Processing Fee below.

Fees for FBA Small and Light, Prep Services, removal and disposal orders, long-term storage,and Multi-Channel Fulfilment are not affected by this change and will continue to apply where applicable.

We welcome your feedback on these announced changes at eu-fba-fee-announce-feedback@amazon.com. The FBA business team will review each comment.

Changes to Fulfilment Fees for Products Sold on Amazon Europe Marketplaces

To determine applicable fees, please identify the relevant product types and size tiers for your products. The following tables show the new FBA fees, effective from April 26, 2018. Units fulfilled as part of the Pan-European programme will continue to be charged the local fulfilment fee from that marketplace. The European Fulfilment Network (EFN) fee charged on items sold on Amazon.co.uk and fulfilled through the EFN programme has been adjusted also to reflect the prevailing foreign exchange (FX) rate between the British Pound and Euro.

1Sellers with German FBA inventory who do not participate in the Fulfilment Network Expansion (Central Europe Programme) authorising Amazon to store and process German FBA inventory in Amazon's fulfilment network, including Poland and the Czech Republic, are charged an additional € 0.50 fulfilment fee per FBA unit shipped from German fulfilment centres. Sellers who are part of the Pan-European FBA Programme are not charged this fee.

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 Euro exceeds 5% on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.

Expansion of Returns Processing Fee into Jewellery, Watches and Luggage Categories

From September 5, 2018, sellers will be charged a Returns Processing Fee for each customer-returned unit in the Jewellery, Watches and Luggage categories. This fee will be equivalent to the fulfilment fees for an individually shipped unit. The fee will also continue to be applied to the Clothing and Shoes & Handbags categories. These fees will apply to units fulfilled from local inventory as well as across Europe through the European Fulfilment Network (EFN) programme. The Returns Processing Fee will not be charged in cases where the reason for the return is one for which Amazon takes responsibility in accordance with our FBA Lost and Damaged Inventory Reimbursement Policy.

Elimination of Zero Fee Fulfilment

From April 26, 2018, the Zero Fee Fulfilment discount for standard-size items that sell for £300/€350 or more will be discontinued. Fulfilment fees based on the product size tier will apply. To determine applicable fees, please identify the relevant product types and size tiers for your products.

Introduction of Manual Processing Fee

From October 9, 2018, sellers will be charged a Manual Processing Fee if they do not provide sufficient box content information for each box sent to a fulfilment centre. This is to ensure that shipments are received more quickly and accurately. If you are unable to or choose not to provide box content information, a Manual Processing Fee of £0.06 per unit will be charged for items sent to United Kingdom fulfilment centres and €0.07 per unit for items received at fulfilment centres in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland or Czech Republic.

Product Types and Size Tiers

Your product type(s) can be identified below:

  • Standard-size (Non-media and Media): A packaged unit that is 12 kg or less in weight, 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 (Non-media and Media): A packaged unit that exceeds 12 kg in weight, 45 cm on its longest side, 34 cm on its median side or 26 cm on its shortest side. The FBA programme is not available to any items weighing more than 30 kg.

Product size tiers can be identified using the following instructions. Take your product's dimensions (in centimetres) and its Outbound Shipping Weight (in grams), and compare them using the table below. If your product's package dimensions on any side or Outbound Shipping Weight exceed any of the maximum values listed, move to the next largest tier (row).

Outbound Shipping Weight is equal to your unit(s) weight plus our Packaging Weight.

Outbound Shipping Weight = your Unit's weight + our Packaging Weight. The Outbound Shipping Weight total is rounded up to the nearest 1 g. The weight of the packaging (our Packaging Weight) will be: Small Letter – 8 g, Large Letter – 25 g, 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 merchant. The examples above are only a guide in evaluating FBA. Amazon does not warrant the accuracy of the calculations.

FBA Improvements

We remain dedicated to providing high value to our sellers. Here is a reminder of some recent improvements to FBA:

  • Pan-European FBA:With this programme, it is easier for you to grow your business in your home marketplace and by selling abroad across Europe. Pan-European FBA enables you to sell across Europe by placing your inventory closer to customers across Europe, and by fulfilling and delivering orders at lower costs and in less time. More products are now eligible to be enrolled on the Pan-European FBA programme and you can enable auto-enrolment for your inventory to be added to the programme. Learn more
  • Unlimited Same-Day Delivery: Tens of millions of members globally enjoy the many benefits of Prime. In fact, more new paid members joined Prime worldwide in 2017 than any previous year. Prime members can receive unlimited Same-Day Delivery on millions of qualifying FBA items across all product categories.
  • VAT Services on Amazon: VAT Services on Amazon allows you to spend more time on your business and less on VAT. With VAT Services on Amazon, you complete VAT registration, filing and submission in Seller Central from just €400 per country per year. This service is available for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland and Czech Republic. Learn more
  • Inventory Management Enhancements: Two new tools have been launched to help you manage your inventory and maximise sales. The Restock Inventory tool provides recommendations on products to restock, suggested order quantities and reorder dates. Learn more. The Manage Excess Inventory tool helps you quickly identify listings that may have excess inventory and take appropriate actions to improve your inventory performance. Learn more
  • FBA Small and Light: In the United Kingdom, you can benefit from lower fulfilment fees for your fast-moving, small and light products that are priced under £9 (an improved threshold from £7 of the previous year). Learn more

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, fulfilment, 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.

When do these changes take effect?

All the fee changes described above are effective from April 26, 2018, with the exception of the Returns Processing Fee and Manual Processing Fee. The Returns Processing Fee will be expanded into the Jewellery, Watches and Luggage categories on September 5, 2018. The Manual Processing Fee is effective from October 9, 2018.

How do I determine what product size tier my product belongs to?

Refer to the Product Types and Size Tiers section above to determine your product's size tier.

Will this fee change affect Multi-Channel Fulfilment?

No. Multi-Channel Fulfilment fees will not change at this time.

Will this fee change affect items in the FBA Small and Light programme?

No. FBA Small and Light programme (available in the UK only) rates will not change at this time.

Why is the new Returns Processing Fee being introduced for the Jewellery, Watches and Luggage Categories?

The Returns Processing Fee is being introduced to better reflect the costs we incur in processing customer returns for products in these categories. For these categories, we offer free returns to customers in order to help build customer trust.

Why are fulfilment fees for media and non-media not differentiated?

The cost for Amazon to fulfil a media item is similar to the cost to fulfil non-media items. We aligned fulfilment fees on August 1, 2017 to reflect this.
