Tamebay reported today that Amazon FBA fees are changing. The online marketplace says that these changes will be designed to simplify selling across Amazon’s EU marketplaces (as well as lower fees for many items sold on Amazon UK).
There will be no actual fee increase, rather a simplification of fee structure. Not only this, but in many cases the fees will be cheaper to help you to sell around the EU. MCI (Multi- Country Inventory) fees for France, Italy and Spain have been significantly reduced, helping multichannel ecommerce sellers exporting into Europe.
The full FBA fee outline can be found here on Amazon’s website. Katie McQuaid, Amazon’s UK Director, FBA, has shared the detail of the FBA fee changes below:
Standardization of size and weight tiers
FBA’s size and weight-based tiers are now the same for determining fees for all items sold on Amazon, regardless of the EU marketplace in which an order is placed. This removes the need to identify different product-size tiers in different EU marketplaces.
Consolidation of fees
There is now one Fulfilment Fee per unit that is based on dimensions and weight, rather than a Weight Handling fee per shipment plus a separate Pick & Pack fee for each unit.
Simplification of European Fulfilment Network (EFN) fee
There is now one Fulfilment Fee for items that are fulfilled through EFN. EFN is no longer a surcharge. The EFN update allows you to view your EFN fee for each size tier regardless of marketplace, just as you do other FBA fees.
Launch of reduced-fee promotion for marketplaces Amazon.fr, Amazon.it and Amazon.es
A promotional Fulfilment Fee reduction is in place for items sold on Amazon.fr, Amazon.it, and Amazon.es until 4 August 2016. After that time, Amazon will reassess making some or all of the promotional fee reductions permanent.
