2021 FBA fulfillment fee changes, reductions and promotions

Note: For an overview of all 2021 selling fee changes, visit 2021 referral and FBA fee changes summary (Europe).

This page provides details for the following FBA fulfillment fee changes, promotions, and reductions for 2021:

  • FBA fulfillment fee changes (effective June 8, 2021)
  • Reduction or elimination of customer returns processing fee (effective March 1, 2021)
  • Amazon Partnered Carrier program promotional discount (effective April 1, 2021)

FBA fulfillment fee changes

FBA fulfillment fees will be adjusted across local FBA, Pan-European FBA and the European Fulfillment Network to reflect changing supply chain costs. In addition to these adjustments, the following changes will also go into effect starting June 8, 2021, except where otherwise noted.

  • Starting June 8, 2021, we will eliminate the packaging weight adjustment in our fulfillment fee rate card and adjust the weight limits for each size tier accordingly. This change applies to all Amazon Europe stores: United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden and Poland and does not result in any change to the fulfillment fee charge of the shipped unit.
  • We will align the size tiers of the FBA Small and Light program with the standard FBA program to ensure we continue to offer lower fulfillment fees on Small and Light selection versus standard FBA fulfillment fees on comparable products. The Small and Light program is available in Amazon Europe stores in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain.
  • We will decrease the per-unit surcharge from €0.50 to €0.35 for sellers who ship from fulfillment centers in Germany and do not participate in the fulfillment Network Expansion (Central Europe Program). Similarly, for the Small and light program, this per unit surcharge will also decrease from €0.30 to €0.25.
  • Effective April 1, 2021, we have extended the limits of our fulfillment size tiers to account for fulfillment of heavy and bulky products, with associated fees for this service. Products greater than 31.5 kg or 175 cm in length can now be fulfilled in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain as part of the domestic FBA program. In addition, sellers will pay a minimum referral fee of £15/€15 for each item sold via Heavy and bulky FBA, in addition to FBA fees. Refer to the Selling on Amazon fee schedule to view typical referral fees for all stores and product categories, which are calculated as a percentage of the total sales price.

Please see below the rates across countries and FBA programs, starting June 8, 2021, except where otherwise noted. Local and Pan-European FBA fulfillment fees remain unchanged for Sweden and Poland.

2We may review EFN fees and make adjustments with a 30-day notice when the FX rate change between the British pound and the euro exceeds 5% on a monthly, quarterly or yearly basis.

What impact does the elimination of packaging weight have on the fulfillment fee?

This change simplifies the fulfillment fee calculation for your shipped units. You should not see any change to your fees due to the elimination of packaging weight. Prior to June 8, 2021, packaging weight is added to the unit weight to determine the final chargeable shipping weight of a product. Starting June 8, 2021, packaging weight will no longer be added to unit weight and the unit will be charged as per its own weight and dimensions only. The example below helps illustrate the change.
