FBA Subscribe & Save

FBA Subscribe & Save lets Amazon customers sign up for recurring, scheduled deliveries of products that they use frequently.

Subscribers get a base discount on their deliveries, which is funded by you as the seller. Customers who receive five or more subscriptions in a delivery reach tiered status, unlocking additional savings on all products in their delivery. (See How base discounts and tiered status work below.)

By participating in Subscribe & Save, you agree to the program’s terms and conditions. See eligibility and seller-funding requirements below for more details.

Note: Subscribe & Save offers are also available to Amazon Business customers. Business customers can place program orders using recurring deliveries. They get a 5% discount on Subscribe & Save orders regardless of the product category or number of subscriptions.

Eligibility requirements

To participate in the program, you must have an FBA account in good standing. Effective December 18, 2019, enrollment of new products is limited to brand owners. Any product enrolled before December 18 remains eligible for Subscribe & Save. For information on registering brands, visit Amazon Brand Registry.

If the option to enable Subscribe & Save does not appear in your settings and you believe that you have eligible, replenishable items, contact Selling Partner Support.

Amazon uses the following criteria to determine product eligibility:

  • Fulfillment history and in-stock rate
  • Sales performance
  • Product category
  • Average selling price

Seller-funding requirements

You can choose from three base funding options: 0%, 5%, or 10%. Subscribers who receive five or more subscriptions in a delivery reach tiered status, and Amazon will, for a limited time, fund an additional 5% discount. You can update funding and manage your selection on the Manage Products page.

If we enroll your products at 0% base discount plus the Amazon-funded 5% discount, we will continue funding subscriptions with these discounts indefinitely. When the limited-time Amazon discount ends, we will stop automatically enrolling new products.

The new funding structure applies to all of your Subscribe & Save items, including those already enrolled and new selections. All subscriptions created before November 5, 2019, will continue to be funded per the previous category-specific fee structure.

Note: Starting in December 2019, for a limited time, eligible, replenishable items will be automatically enrolled at a 0% base discount and Amazon will fund the 5% tier discount. With this change, there is no cost to you and you will no longer have to manually enroll products in Subscribe & Save to benefit from the program. If you don’t want to take advantage of automatic enrollment, you can opt out at any time by clicking Opt out of automatic enrollment on the Manage Products page.

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 Featured Offer. For more information, see How the Featured Offer works.
  • Replenishment orders are automatically created according to the frequency set by the customer. Subscribe & Save customers can set deliveries at monthly intervals, from one to six months.

You can view 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 affect your ability to participate in the program.

You can go to Subscribe & Save Manage products to access your performance dashboard and review the following metrics for weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly time frames:

  • Shipped units: The number of units for shipped subscription orders over a given time period.
  • Shipped revenue: The sum of your revenue from shipped subscription orders over a given time period.
  • Subscriptions count: The number of active subscriptions at the end of a given time period.
  • Not delivered due to OOS: The percentage of your units that were not delivered because the ASINs were out of stock.
  • Average revenue per customer: A comparison of your average revenue from subscribers versus non-subscribers.
  • Planned revenue: The sum of your revenue from orders expected to ship for your active subscriptions in the upcoming 30, 60, or 90 days.
  • Planned units: The number of units for orders expected to ship for your active subscriptions in the upcoming 30, 60, or 90 days.
Note: Planned revenue and planned units are estimated projections, not a guarantee of future sales.

You can also get these performance metrics at the ASIN level by using the search option on the dashboard. You can search up to 20 ASINs at a time.
