If you do not provide box content information, Amazon will manually process your boxes at the fulfilment centre and a fee will apply. Shipments that are manually processed may be received more slowly than shipments with box content information.
The FBA manual processing fee is £0.12 per unit for items sent to United Kingdom fulfilment centres and €0.14 per unit for items received at fulfilment centres in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Poland or Czech Republic. If VAT is applicable, it will be assessed in addition to the manual processing fee.
The fee will be charged the earlier of (i) 14 days after the first unit of your shipment is received at the fulfilment centre, and (ii) at the end of the month after the first unit of your shipment is received at the fulfilment centre. You will be charged for the number of units received as of the date when the fee is charged. If your shipment contains units that are received after FBA manual processing fee has already partially been charged on the shipment, you will be charged for the additionally received units at the next 14 day or end of month interval.
When creating a shipment to Amazon, if you choose the Skip box information and apply manual processing fee option in the Prepare Shipment step of the shipment creation workflow, the fee will be applied to your shipment. You will be shown a preview of the estimated fee amount, and the fee will be charged after your shipment has been received at the fulfilment centre.
