US FBA fulfillment fees updates – April 25, 2022

Posted by Jimi Patel | April 25, 2022

Beginning April 28, Amazon will implement a fuel and inflation surcharge of 5% on top of their current Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) fulfillment fee per-unit rates. The increased fees will apply to all product types, including non-apparel, apparel, dangerous goods and Small and Light items.

Sellers who choose FBA as their fulfillment channel have to pay a variety of fees in addition to the fulfillment rate that’s being increased at the end of April 2022. One of the sellers sharing their frustration with the fee surcharge said, “Also, an inflation surcharge is ridiculous. Prices aren’t ever going to decline, so adding an inflation surcharge is silly time. It’s a price hike, call it what it is. We’re not stupid.”

The surcharge is in lieu of increased fuel, logistics and labor costs.

“In 2022, we expected a return to normalcy as COVID-19 restrictions around the world eased, but fuel and inflation have presented further challenges,” said the Amazon FBA team to CNET.
