FBA fulfillment fees for Amazon.com orders

The Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) fee is a per-unit fee, based on the dimensions and weight of the item. First determine the product category (apparel or non-apparel) and product size tier (standard or oversize). Once you know the product’s category and size tier, calculate the shipping weight and use the tables below to determine which fee will apply.

Note: You can use the FBA Revenue Calculator to estimate FBA fulfillment fees for specific items already listed on Amazon. It also gives you a real-time comparison between the FBA fees and the cost of fulfilling orders yourself.

Calculate the shipping weight

Standard size and special oversize

The shipping weight is calculated for each unit by adding the packaging weight to the unit weight. Shipping weight in the small standard and large standard size tiers under 1 lb is calculated by rounding up to the nearest whole ounce. For the remaining size tiers, the shipping weight (see details below) is calculated by rounding up to the nearest whole pound.

Large standard-size items weighing more than 1 lb, small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize

The shipping weight is calculated for each unit by adding the packaging weight to the greater of the unit weight or the dimensional weight. The dimensional weight is equal to the unit volume (length x width x height) divided by 139. The dimensional weight for oversize items assumes a minimum width and height of 2 inches. The total shipping weight for each unit is rounded up to the nearest pound.

The shipping weight is then used to calculate the fulfillment fee based on the rates listed above.

Size tier Packaging weight Shipping weight

(round up total to nearest whole pound)

Standard size (1 lb or less) 4 oz Unit weight 1 + packaging weight 2
Standard size (more than 1 lb) 4 oz The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight 3 + packaging weight
Oversize 1 lb The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight + packaging weight
Special oversize 1 lb Unit weight + packaging weight
Note: Amazon may verify the weight and dimensions of a product using representative samples. Amazon’s information about a product’s weight and dimensions will be used to calculate fees in the event that there is a difference between Amazon’s information and a seller’s information. Amazon may change its information about a product’s weight and dimensions from time to time to reflect updated measurements. Fees based on the weight and dimensions of a product are calculated using Amazon’s information about the weight and dimensions of that product at the time the fee is calculated.

1. The unit weight is the weight of an individual unit.

2. The packaging weight is the weight of the box and packing materials. Amazon uses these standardized weights for calculating shipping weight.

3. For large standard-size units weighing more than 1 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight.
