FBA features, services, and fees

FBA features

As part of Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), you have access to optional features and services to help you manage and grow your business. FBA fees cover the cost of storing your products in Amazon's fulfilment centres; picking, packing and shipping orders; and providing customer service for products sold.

Customer service for FBA orders: Amazon provides customer service on your behalf when you sell products through FBA.

Global selling: Use FBA and the tools available in your seller account to expand your business globally.

FBA services

Amazon Partnered Carrier program: Amazon-partnered carriers offer deeply discounted rates for shipping your inventory to Amazon.

Multi-Channel Fulfilment: Have Amazon fill orders for inventory that you sell on your own website and other channels.

Branding options for multi-channel fulfilment orders: When you use multi-channel fulfilment, you can choose to use plain boxes and self-branded packing slips. A per-box fee applies for packaging.

FBA Label Service: Amazon will apply barcode labels to your inventory for you. A per-item fee applies.

FBA Prep Service: Amazon will prepare your inventory so that it meets FBA prep requirements. A per-item fee applies.
