Values used to calculate fee

Product size tier Product size tiers are measurement categories based on the unit weight, product dimensions, and dimensional weight of a packaged item. Learn how to determine your product-size tier, or use the Monthly Storage Fees report to see the size tier information for products you have previously stored in FBA.
Shipping weight Shipping weight is the item weight plus the packaging (or dunnage) to ship an order of the item. The shipping weight is calculated based on the item’s unit weight or dimensional weight, plus the packaging weight. Learn how to determine your product's shipping weight.

Rate cards

Use the size tier of your product to determine which rate card applies. If your product requires special handling*, then use the Oversize and special handling items rate card.

Note: Shipping weight in the standard-size tiers under 1 lb is calculated by rounding up to the nearest 0.1 lb. For the remaining size tiers, the shipping weight is calculated by rounding up to the nearest whole pound.

Fee examples

Example 1: Standard-size item, shipping weight of 0.5+ to 1.0 lb

You decide to request the disposal of two standard-size units, and each unit has a shipping weight of 0.56 lb. The unit's shipping weight is rounded up to 0.6 lb. Given that the unit has a shipping weight between 0.5 and 1 lb, the per-unit disposal fee is $0.35. You will be charged a disposal fee of $0.35 per unit, for a total of $0.70, when the disposal order is complete.

Example 2: Oversize item, shipping weight over 10.0 lb

You decide to request the disposal of three oversize units, and each unit has a shipping weight of 10.1 lb. The unit's shipping weight is rounded up to 11 lb. The resulting per-unit disposal fee will be $3.85 ($3.50 for the first 10 lb and $0.35 for the additional 1 lb). You will be charged a disposal fee of $3.85 per unit, for a total of $11.55, when the disposal order is complete.
