Calculate the shipping weight

Shipping weight is determined by the unit weight or dimensional weight, depending on size tier and which is greater. Dimensional weight is equal to the unit volume (length x width x height) divided by 139. The dimensional weight for oversize items assumes a minimum width and height of 2 inches.

Starting January 18, 2022, for core FBA and dangerous goods, Amazon will use dimensional weight when it is greater than unit weight for all large standard-size units and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units. Small standard-size units will use unit weight. This change will also apply to units fulfilled through Multi-Channel Fulfillment and Small and Light.

For apparel, for all small standard-size and large standard-size units weighing more than 0.75 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight. Small standard-size units use unit weight.

Frequently asked questions

When do these changes take effect?

The new fulfillment fees take effect on January 18, 2022.

Will the fee changes apply to products ordered before January 18, 2022?

FBA fulfillment fees are calculated and charged when shipments leave Amazon fulfillment centers. As a result, if a product is ordered before January 18, 2022, but is shipped on or after that date, the new FBA fulfillment fees will apply.

How do I determine what product size tier my product belongs to?

Use the product size tier table to determine your product's size tier.

What is the status of ASIN quantity limits

Since the peak holiday shopping season, we have relaxed restock limits to a point where they have minimal impact on most sellers.
