80% Partnered Carrier programme discount on Amazon for new users
If an Amazon Partnered Carrier programme discount would convince you to try the service to get products into Amazon FBA then start planning as there’s an 80% off promotion starting on the 1st of April for new users.
Please note, this 80% discount only applies to domestic shipments – e.g. from a UK address to a UK FBA warehouse.
The promotion doesn’t apply for shipping to international FBA and indeed the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme to the EU is currently suspended as UPS still aren’t ready to confidently handle shipments, mainly due to no systems in place to handle the paperwork that’s now required across the UK-EU border. The suspension of the small parcel delivery service with UPS between the UK and the EU has entirely wiped out the benefit of an Amazon Partnered Carrier programme discount that was supposed to run until the end of March for UK-EU shipments, so it’s nice to see a domestic discount appear that merchants will at least be able to use.
The 80% Amazon Partnered Carrier programme will run from the 1st of April until the 30th of September 2021 but with a few caveats:
- The promotional benefit is available only to sellers who have not used an Amazon partnered carrier between the 1st of January 2021, and the 28th of February 2021.
- The shipment must be sent to a fulfilment centre in the same country as the ship-from address.
- The shipment must be created in Seller Central between the 1st of April 2021 until the 30th of September 2021.
- The shipment must use an Amazon partnered carrier.
If you are eligible, the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme discount will apply automatically to any domestic shipment that you create between the 1st of April 2021 until the 30th of September 2021, and send to a fulfilment centre using an Amazon partnered carrier.
