Amazon 2019 Fee Changes – Most Going Up – But, a Few Going Down

January 25th, 2019 by Skip McGrath

Here is the announcement from Amazon in their own words:

Fulfillment fees

We will make no changes to fulfillment fees for small standard-size and large standard-size items with a shipping weight of 10 oz or less.

We will implement small increases in fulfillment fees for products in other size tiers to reflect fulfillment and transportation cost changes.

We will change the dimensional billing weight calculation for oversize items. We will apply a minimum width and height of 2 inches when calculating dimensional weight for oversize items, to align with packaging costs.

We will introduce separate fulfillment fees for dangerous goods that contain flammable or pressurized aerosol substances and items that contain lithium-ion batteries.

We will simplify the Subscribe & Save fee structure starting in September 2019. You will be able to fund a flat discount of 5% or 10% for each new item you add to the program.

Storage fees

We will eliminate long-term storage fees for units that have been in a fulfillment center for 181-365 days. The last long-term storage fee charge for inventory we store for 181-365 days was January 15, 2019. We will continue to charge long-term storage fees for units in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days.

We will reduce the minimum long-term storage fee on units in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days from $0.50 per unit to $0.15 per unit. The last charge at $0.50 per unit was January 15, 2019.

We will introduce a higher monthly storage fee for dangerous goods that contain flammable or pressurized aerosol substances. This change will first be reflected in April 2019 charges for storage that occurs in March 2019. We will not change the monthly inventory storage fees for other products.
