Fulfilment by Amazon Europe

Fee Changes starting from June 1, 2017*

2017 FBA Fee Update for Europe

*Fulfilment by Amazon fees across the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain will be adjusted to reflect the changing costs of fulfilment, storage, transportation, and customer service. FBA is introducing the following changes:

  • Fulfilment Fees for Non-Media and Oversize: As of June 1, 2017, Fulfilment Fees were increased for Non-Media Standard-Size and Oversize units. These changes applied to units fulfilled locally as well as across Europe through the European Fulfilment Network (EFN) programme.
  • Monthly Storage Fees: As of June 1, 2017, Monthly Storage Fees were increased across Amazon European marketplaces. Rates across Germany, France, Italy, and Spain marketplaces were aligned to provide a common rate card.
  • Fulfilment Fees for Media: Effective August 1, 2017, Fulfilment Fees for Media items will be increased to match the Fulfilment Fees for Non-Media items. These changes will apply to units fulfilled locally as well as across Europe through the European Fulfilment Network (EFN) program.
  • Customer Return Fee for Clothing and Shoes Categories: Effective October 23, 2017, a Returns Processing Fee will be applied to customer-returned products in the Clothing and Shoes categories, for which Amazon offers free return shipping. The Returns Processing Fee will not be charged in cases where the reason for the return is one for which Amazon takes responsibility.

Fees for FBA Prep Services, removal and disposal orders, and Multi-Channel Fulfilment are not affected by this change and will continue to apply where applicable. For more details on 2017 changes to long-term storage fees please see Long Term Storage Fees.

We welcome your feedback on these announced changes at eu-fba-fee-announce-feedback@amazon.com. The FBA business team will review each comment.

1Note: Sellers with German FBA inventory who do not participate in the Fulfilment Network Expansion (Central Europe Program) authorizing Amazon to store and process German FBA inventory in Amazon's fulfilment network including Poland and the Czech Republic, are charged an additional € 0.25 of Fulfilment Fee per FBA unit shipped from German fulfilment centres. Effective 11 April 2017, this fee is increased to € 0.50 per FBA unit shipped as communicated earlier. Sellers who are part of the Pan-European FBA program are not charged this fee.

EFN Fees FX Adjustment: As communicated in June 2015, we may review EFN fees and make adjustments with a 30-day notice when the FX rate change between the British Pound and Euro exceeds 5% on a monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis.

Monthly Storage Fees

Effective June 1, 2017, the monthly inventory storage fee for items stored in United Kingdom fulfilment centres will be £0.48 per cubic foot during the months of January through September and £0.68 per cubic foot during the months of October through December.

Effective June 1, 2017, the monthly inventory storage fee for items stored in Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, Poland and Czech Republic fulfilment centres will be €20 per cubic meter during the months of January through September and €28 per cubic meter during the months of October through December.

Returns Processing Fee

Effective October 23, 2017, sellers will be charged a Returns Processing Fee for each customer-returned unit in the Clothing and Shoes categories, for which Amazon offers free return shipping. This fee will be equivalent to the fulfilment fees for an individually shipped unit. These fees will apply to units fulfilled from local inventory as well as across Europe through the European Fulfilment Network (EFN) program.  The Returns Processing Fee will not be charged in cases where the reason for the return is one for which Amazon takes responsibility in accordance with our FBA Lost and Damaged Inventory Reimbursement.

In addition, products that were eligible for Zero-Fee Fulfilment (if applicable) will be subject to the Returns Processing Fee.

Product Types and Size Tiers

Your product type(s) can be identified below:

  • Media: Standard-Size units that are in the following product categories: Books; DVDs, Blu-ray, VHS; Music; Software; Video Games.

Outbound Shipping Weight = your Unit's weight + our Packaging Weight. The Outbound Shipping Weight total is rounded up to the nearest 1 g. The weight of the packaging (our Packaging Weight) will be: Small Letter – 8 g, Large Letter – 25 g, Small Envelope – 20 g, Standard Envelope – 40 g, Large Envelope – 40 g, Standard Parcel – 100 g, and 240 g for Small Oversize, Standard Oversize, and Large Oversize items.
All fees are exclusive of VAT and other taxes that are payable by the merchant. The examples above are a guide in evaluating FBA only. Amazon does not warrant the accuracy of the calculations.

You can also preview the new Fulfilment fees for Non-Media Standard-Size and Oversize units along with the Monthly Storage Fees through the FBA Revenue Calculator by clicking here.

Long Term Storage Fees

On 15 February and 15 August of every year, FBA conducts an inventory cleanup. At this time inventory items that have been in our fulfilment centres for between 6 to 12 months will be assessed a long-term storage fee of £441.25 per cubic metre and items that have been for 12 months or longer will be assessed a long-term storage fee of £882.50 per cubic metre.

FBA Improvements

We remain dedicated to providing high value to our sellers. Here is a look at some of the recent improvements from FBA.

  • Pan-European FBA: With this program, it is now easier for you to build your business by selling across all Amazon European marketplaces. Send products to the Amazon fulfilment centre in the country of your choice. Your products are then distributed across Europe, at no extra cost to you, to provide fast delivery to customers. You are charged only the local fulfilment fee of the marketplace where the item is ordered.
  • FREE Same-Day Delivery: Tens of millions of new members have joined the Prime program over the last year. Prime members in more than 30 cities in Europe can receive FREE Same-Day Delivery on millions of qualifying FBA items. Unlimited Free Next-Day Shipping continues to be available to Prime members across all product categories.
  • Discounted VAT Advisory Rates for Amazon Sellers: You can expand your business across Europe by taking advantage of reduced-cost VAT registration and reporting with external tax advisory firms that offer special rates to Amazon sellers that are up to 70% lower than standard market prices.
  • Cross Border Partnered Carrier Program (PCP): You can get discounted rates when shipping small-parcel deliveries internationally from a United Kingdom, German, French, Italian or Spanish address to an Amazon fulfilment centre in Europe using the PCP program. PCP allows you to track your shipments and makes your inventory available for sale faster.

Why is the new Returns Processing Fee being introduced for Clothing and Shoes?
Returns Processing Fee is being introduced to better reflect the costs we incur in processing customer returns for products in these categories where we offer free returns to customers in order to help build customer trust.

Why will Fulfilment Fees for Media and Non-Media be the same?
The cost for Amazon to fulfil a media item is similar to the cost to fulfil non-media items. We are aligning fulfilment fees to reflect this. These fee alignments will not take effect until 1 August 2017 to give sellers time to plan accordingly.

Why is the increase in European Fulfilment Network (EFN) fees for sales on amazon.co.uk relatively higher than the increase in EFN fees for sales on other marketplaces?
Fees for items sold on amazon.co.uk and fulfilled through the European Fulfilment Network are being increased to reflect the change in the foreign exchange (FX) rate between the British Pound and the Euro that occurred in 2016. This is the first FX rate adjustment to the EFN fees since August 2015.
