Amazon FBA FeatFBA Price Changes coming in August

Retailers using FBA (Fulfilment By Amazon) services will be impacted by changes to the fee structure for orders on Amazon.co.uk. These changes are due to come into effect from 29th August 2013, and will increase overall fulfilment fees for the majority of products.

The main changes

  • Media Product – standard envelope size – 13.5 % increase.
  • Non- Media Product – Standard Parcel Size – 9.2 % increase.
  • Abolition of Order Handling Fee, to be offset by increased Pick & Pack and Weight Handling charge – overall effect is a typical increase of 9.3 % in fees.
  • Introduction of two new product and weight tiers.

For further details of fee structure changes we’ve attached the original email as a PDF or you can refer to the Amazon website.

Whilst FBA are applying increases in fulfilment charges, 3P Logistics in comparison have kept prices stable, and are even able to offer incentives for qualifying customers. For further details of how we can offer a real alternative, contact our Business Development Team on 0844 871 2011.
