Amazon has announced a raft of 2022 Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) fee changes that will come into effect on the 31st of March this year.
Not only are there are some increases to Amazon FBA fees to be aware of but there are also some amendments to the size and weight tiers that might represent an additional cost to your Amazon business.
FBA fee increases come on top of speculation that Amazon Prime subscription hikes will also be announced soon due to growing shipping and fulfilment the company faces worldwide. Amazon says in a statement that it has postponed passing on some of these expenses in the past few years but it faces increased costs moving forward.
Amazon says: “Throughout the pandemic, we have worked to support you – postponing and keeping fee changes low, reducing or eliminating select fees like those for customer returns, and absorbing billions of dollars in increased costs on your behalf – all while making significant and necessary investments in people, technology, transportation and infrastructure. As you’ve seen widely reported in the press and have likely experienced yourselves, costs are rising and we now need to make adjustments to this year’s fee structure in response. We will adjust our fees to partially offset the higher permanent operating costs we face going forward.
Starting March 31, 2022, certain selling fees will be adjusted in our Amazon Europe stores. Most referral fees will not change, and we are making only moderate increases to fulfilment fees. Review the detailed fee change pages below for more information.”
