2021 US Multi-Channel Fulfillment fee changes

Note: For an overview of all 2021 US selling fee changes, visit amazon.com/selling-fee-changes.

On June 1, 2021, Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) fee changes will take effect. This page details the upcoming changes.

Fulfillment fees

The following changes will take effect on June 1, 2021:

  • We will implement moderate increases in fulfillment fees (about 3% on average) to reflect changing fulfillment, transportation, and storage costs, as shown in the table below.
  • We are aligning most MCF product size tiers to the Fulfillment by Amazon tiers and adding a new Small standard size: 2 oz or less tier.
  • We will remove expedited and priority shipping speeds on large oversize and special oversize products.
  • We will eliminate the packaging weight adjustment for all fees.
  • We will add the option to block orders from being shipped by Amazon Logistics, for a 5% surcharge (not included in the rates below).

Given the current carrier restrictions imposed by some channels, we are providing the option to block orders from being shipped by Amazon Logistics, beginning June 1, 2021. This block can be done at the account level within your FBA settings or just for individual orders.

To see the current MCF fees, go to Fulfillment fees for Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders.

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.

On June 1, 2021, we will eliminate the packaging weight adjustment when determining shipping weight, as shown in the tables below.

Before June 1, 2021

Size tier Packaging weight Shipping weight (round up total to nearest whole pound)
Small standard (less than 4 oz) 0.7 oz Unit weight1 + packaging weight2
Standard size (1 lb or less) 4 oz Unit weight1 + packaging weight2
Standard size (more than 1 lb) 4 oz The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight3 + packaging weight
Oversize 1 lb The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight + packaging weight
Special oversize 1 lb Unit weight +packaging weight

1The unit weight is the weight of an individual unit.

2The packaging weight is the weight of the box and packing materials. Amazon uses these standardized weights for calculating shipping weight.

3For large standard-size units weighing more than 1 lb and all small oversize, medium oversize, and large oversize units, Amazon uses dimensional weight when it is greater than the unit weight.

June 1, 2021, and after

For 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. Note that we will eliminate the packaging weight adjustment for all fees.

Size tier Shipping weight*

(If less than 1 lb, round up to nearest whole ounce. If 1 lb or over, round up to nearest whole pound.)

Standard size (0.75 lb or less) Unit weight
Standard size (more than 0.75 lb) The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight
Oversize The greater of the unit weight or dimensional weight
Special oversize Unit weight

*The unit weight is the weight of an individual unit.

Frequently asked questions

When do these changes take effect?

The new fulfillment fees take effect on June 1, 2021.

Will the fee changes apply to products ordered before June 1, 2021?

MCF fulfillment fees are calculated and charged when shipments leave Amazon fulfillment centers. As a result, if a product is ordered before June 1, 2021, but is shipped on or after that date, the new MCF 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.

Do multi-unit discounts apply to different ASINs or size tiers?

Multi-unit discounts are applied regardless of ASINs or different size tiers.

How do I block Amazon Logistics as a carrier?

You can block Amazon Logistics in one of two ways. The first way is at the account level by going to your FBA settings, then scrolling down to Multi-Channel Fulfillment settings. Blocking Amazon Logistics at the account level will remove this shipping method from all MCF orders placed after the settings change. The second way is when placing individual MCF orders via Seller Central or API. Changes to your Amazon Logistics preference when placing an individual MCF order will override your account-level preference for those orders. Note that blocking Amazon Logistics at either the account or the order level will result in a 5% surcharge.
