Offers that are eligible for Pan-EU FBA enjoy local Small and Light fulfilment fees in countries that enable inventory placement, and EFN fees in countries that don’t enable placement. For more information, go to our Small and Light rate card for each of our stores: UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain.

* By enabling countries for inventory placement, you authorise Amazon to move any of your FBA inventory in any or all of those countries, at no additional cost to you. Storing goods in a country outside your home store country will trigger additional VAT registration and reporting obligations for your business, as well as Intrastat and other reporting requirements.
