Amazon to increase fulfilment fees in the US

Date : 02 January 2020

Amazon is set to increase the fees it charges merchants in the US from February 2020.

Logistical investment

In February this year, Amazon has announced it will raise the fees it charges its sellers. The online retailer said that in 2019, it invested more than $15bn in infrastructure, people, and programmes, including its Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) service. 150 new tools and services were also invested in to help its merchants grow their businesses. Amazon also invested to expand its Free One-Day Delivery on more than ten million products available through its Prime service.

Increase in merchant fees

Amazon is set to increase its seller fees by 3%. In some instances, the retailer said it will decrease select referral fees. For Amazon’s FBA programme, fees cover picking and packing orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns.
