2022 Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee


#1

For many years, we have continued to evolve how we charge fulfillment fees to better reflect the underlying operational costs, while ensuring that we provide a great value for sellers. As we look ahead and prepare for the busy holiday shopping season, we expect greater utilization of our fulfillment network. Across the supply chain, this creates increased operating costs during this holiday peak period.

As a result, similar to other major carriers, we will introduce a holiday peak fulfillment fee from October 15, 2022, to January 14, 2023. The fee will be an average of USD 0.35 per item sold using US and Canada FBA. For specific fees by size and weight and for changes to other fulfillment methods, please visit the links below.

Our selling partners are incredibly important to us, and this is not a decision we made lightly. The entire industry sees increases in fulfillment and logistics costs during the holiday peak period due to the concentrated volume of shipments. We have previously absorbed these cost increases, but seasonal expenses are reaching new heights. As a result, we decided that similar to other carriers, we will implement a holiday peak fulfillment fee that applies during a timebound period each year.

FBA continues to provide a very high level of service to customers and a great value for sellers. With this change, Amazon’s fulfillment fees during this peak period will remain an average of 30% less expensive for slower standard shipping methods than other major third-party logistics providers, and an average of 70% less expensive than comparable two-day shipping alternatives.

Great! Another increase in fees!


#3

Not at all happy about this. I’m sure I won’t be the last.


#4

imagine If you make .35 per item oh boy this is bad


#5

If I’m not mistaken…
Unrelated to amazon…UPS and USPS raise their fees in October…


#6

I didn’t see mention of fbm fee increases so I’m relieved… for now


#7

It affects also FBM when UPS and USPS raise their fees.


#8

FBA fees should be a lot higher


#9

It’s a good thing we aren’t in a recession…


#10

Not happy about it, another kick in the proverbial groin to Amazon vendors already struggling to pay their gas, food and utility bills.


#11

I was referring to amazon fees directly, not usps increases


#12

Amazon fees are directly affected by rate increases by UPS and USPS.


#13

Where exactly do I see the “detailed rate chart applicable for your business” or even holiday peak fulfillment amounts on the linked pages?


#14

So amazon announced they’re raising their fee percentage on fbm orders?


#15

Since the increase in items for the holidays won’t be enough commission for a company like Amazon… smh… anything to make the rich richer right???


#16

No. Because our shipping rates on FBM are not a concern for amazon.
But, when UPS and USPS will raise their holiday fees, FBM sellers will pay the higher prices.


#17

Yes, but this is always true. Nothing new.

And that money goes to the carriers we choose–not directly into Amazon’s pocket.


#18

Ok. So it’s the same fee percentage as before. There is no amazon-induced fee increase on fbm orders, as I mentioned.


#19

The complaints were that amazon hikes the fees because they want .
Don’t you think that amazon will have to pay higher rates to the other carriers ?
Does it really make the difference if it goes to amazon pockets or the other carriers ?


#20

Why? Because $30 billion profit a year isn’t enough?
