FBA fulfillment fees

The FBA fulfillment fee is a per-unit fee charged to fulfill items to buyers for purchases on Amazon. The fee varies depending on the item’s category, size, and weight.

Monthly inventory storage fees

Amazon charges monthly inventory storage fees for the space that your inventory occupies in fulfillment centers. Storage fees are based on the daily average volume, in cubic feet, as measured by the unit size when properly packaged.

Long-term storage fees
