2019 Fulfillment by Amazon removal and disposal fee changes

We periodically review FBA removal and disposal fees. As a result of our most recent review, we are adjusting certain FBA removal and disposal fees in Europe, effective September 3, 2019.

  • Domestic removal fees: We will reduce removal fees for standard-size and oversize units in UK fulfilment centres. For fulfilment centres in Spain, the removal fee for oversize items will increase.
  • Disposal fees: We will increase disposal fees on units stored in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and Czech Republic. The upcoming rates will be based on unit weight and size.
  • Cross-border removal fees: We will reduce cross-border removal fees on units stored in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland, and Czech Republic.

The following tables show the fee changes for removals and disposals. All changes are effective September 3, 2019.
