By Chris Dawson March 23, 2020 - 10:00 am

Although Amazon aren’t accepting most products into FBA before the 5th of April, don’t forget that there are Fulfilment by Amazon fee changes due to take effect on the 1st of April 2020, except where otherwise stated, which will be applicable in all Amazon’s European marketplaces. You can find the full announcement in Seller Central.

You may also run into problems of having your stock quarantined by Amazon, stuck in their fulfilment centre but barred from being shipped as has also already occurred in France and Italy.

Fulfilment by Amazon fee Changes

Long-term storage fee

The minimum per-unit long-term storage fee (€0.10/£0.10) will be eliminated for non-media items in inventory for more than 365 days. The final charge for the fee will be for the 15th March 2020, inventory assessment date. The per-cubic-foot/metre long-term storage fee will remain unchanged.

Fulfilment fee

The fulfilment fee will be adjusted across local FBA, Pan-European FBA and the European Fulfilment Network.

Removal order fee

The fee structure for having inventory returned to you will be changed for both local and cross-border removal orders. The fee will now be charged per unit by weight. Fees for disposal orders will remain the same.

Announcing the FBA New Selection programme

Last March Amazon initiated a promotion offering free monthly storage and removals for new-to-Amazon ASINs, subject to limitations. Based on the success of this promotion, Amazon are creating a new, enhanced programme called FBA New Selection

For new-to-FBA ASINs, Amazon will offer free monthly storage, free removals, and free FBA returns processing for a limited time. For sellers new to FBA, they will also offer an inbound transportation discount. The programme is subject to limitations and eligible sellers must opt in. The new programme will launch on the 1st of April, 2020.

You can find full details of the FBA New Selection programme in Seller Central.
