FBA Subscribe & Save

Subscribe & Save lets Amazon customers sign up for recurring, scheduled deliveries of products they use frequently. Subscribers get a discount of 5%, 10%, 15%, or 20% off their Subscribe & Save orders, as well as free shipping. Eligible FBA sellers can participate in Subscribe & Save by adding their FBA products to the program. See the Eligibility requirements below for details.

Subscribe & Save customers select the product, quantity, and frequency of delivery, and they get a 5% discount per subscription. Customers who receive products from five or more subscriptions in a month will get a 10% or 15% discount per subscription, depending on the product category. Amazon Family customers get a 20% discount on diapers regardless of the number of subscriptions. See the Eligible product categories and discounts below for more information.

Starting August 1, 2018, Subscribe & Save offers are also available to registered Amazon Business customers. Business customers can place Subscribe & Save orders using recurring deliveries. They get a 5% discount on Subscribe & Save orders regardless of the product category or number of subscriptions.

Note: Your coupons and promotional discounts are added to Subscribe & Save discounts. For example, if you run a Lightning Deal on a product in the Subscribe & Save program, you must provide the Subscribe & Save discount in addition to the deal price.

Subscribe & Save orders

There are two types of Subscribe & Save orders:

  • Sign-up orders are the customer's initial order subscribing to a product in the Subscribe & Save program. In order for your Subscribe & Save offer to appear for a product, your offer must be the Buy Box offer. For more information, see How the Buy Box Works.
  • Replenishment orders are created automatically according to the frequency set by the customer. Subscribe & Save customers can set deliveries at monthly intervals, from one to six months.

You can see your Subscribe & Save orders in the Transaction View of the Payments report page.

Seller performance metrics

Seller performance reviews are ongoing in order to ensure a positive Amazon customer experience. When evaluating performance, we consider such things as your ability to maintain inventory levels sufficient to meet customer demand, customer feedback, and Subscribe & Save order cancellations. Poor performance metrics may result in the suspension of your Subscribe & Save offers or your suspension from the Subscribe & Save program.
