On Wednesday, May 3rd ,2017, Amazon has sent an email to its sellers – the title: “Reminder: Update to European Fulfilment by Amazon Fees”.
Amazon tells us in this e-mail about the fulfillment, monthly storage fee and customer return fee (for clothing and shoes categories) changes which come into effect from June 1st ,2017 in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain.
The reason for these adjustments is to reflect the changing costs of fulfillment, storage, transportation and customer service.
Fees for FBA Prep Services, removal and disposal orders, and Multi-Channel Fulfilment are not affected by this change.
An example for the change of the fulfillment fee for units sold on Amazon.co.uk and fulfilled from a UK warehouse:
|Prior to June 1st ,2017||After June 1st, 2017|
|Standard Parcel up to 250g||£1.66||£1.73|
|Standard Parcel up to 1500g||£2.19||£2.26|
|Standard Oversize up to 1000g||£3.79||£3.85|
|Large Oversize up to 30 kg||£6.85||£6.89|
Monthly Storage fees in the UK will change as below:
The VAT and other taxes that have to be paid by the merchant are not included in the fees. The examples above are a guide in evaluating FBA only. So please consider adding an additional 20% (VAT rate in the UK) to the values above.
|Month||Prior to June 1st, 2017||After June 1st, 2017|
|January – September||£ 0.30||£ 0.48|
|October – December||£ 0.40||£ 0.68|
These factors are important when it comes to choosing your next product.
