If you choose not to provide box content information, Amazon will manually process your boxes at the fulfillment center and a fee will apply. Shipments that are manually processed may be received more slowly than shipments with box content information.
|Months||Manual processing fee|
|January - October||$0.15 per unit|
|November - December||$0.30 per unit|
The applicable FBA manual processing fee is based on the time the first unit of a shipment is received at the fulfillment center. For example, if the first unit of a shipment is received at the fulfillment center in October, then the $0.15 per unit fee will apply to all units in that shipment (even if some are received in November). Likewise, if the first unit of a shipment is received at the fulfillment center in December, then the $0.30 per unit fee will apply to all units in that shipment, even if some are received in January.
The fee will be charged 14 days after the first unit of your shipment is received at the fulfillment center. You will be charged for the number of units received as of the date when the fee is charged. If your shipment contains units that are received after the FBA manual processing fee has already been charged on the shipment, you will be charged for these additional units at the next 14-day interval.
When creating a shipment to Amazon, if you select the Skip box information and apply manual processing fee option in the Prepare Shipment step of the shipment creation workflow, the fee will be applied to your shipment. You will be shown a preview of the estimated fee amount, and the fee will be charged after your shipment has been received at the fulfillment center.
