Frequently asked questions

When do these changes take effect?

The new fulfilment fees take effect on September 13, 2021.

Will the fee changes apply to products ordered before September 13, 2021?

The FBA fulfilment fees are calculated and charged when shipments leave Amazon Fulfilment Centres. As a result, if a product is ordered before September 13, 2021, but is shipped on or after that date, the new FBA fulfilment fees will apply.
