FBA manual processing fee

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.

Fee rates

The FBA Manual Processing Fee is $0.10 per unit for shipments received from January to October and $0.15 per unit for shipments received during November and December.

Important: 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 $0.10 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 $0.15 per unit fee will apply to all units in that shipment, even if some are received in January.
Important: Note that the fee preview rate may differ from the applicable rate. For example, if a shipment is sent in October, when the fee preview indicates a rate of $0.10 per unit, but the first unit of the shipment is not received at the fulfillment center until November, the $0.15 per unit rate (the applicable rate at the time the first unit is received) will apply to all units in the shipment.

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.

Choosing to apply the fee

When creating a shipment to Amazon, if you select Skip box information and apply the 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.

Important: Choosing the FBA Manual Processing Fee option may cause delays in receiving your shipment. Shipments that are manually processed require more processing time than shipments with box content information. To learn more, see Provide box content information.
