Program details

  • Limited to new-to-FBA parent ASINs: Sellers enrolled in the program can take advantage of the fee waivers on up to 100 new-to-FBA parent ASINs that they create. The 100-parent-ASIN limit will be reset annually on 1 January.
  • Free monthly storage and free removals: No monthly storage fees for the first 30 units of each new parent ASIN for 90 days after the first unit is received at an Amazon fulfilment centre. Sellers can remove any of those first 30 units within 180 days after the first inventory-received date with no FBA removal fees.
  • CAD 135 inbound transportation charge discount (new FBA sellers only): For eligible sellers who are new to FBA and who enrol in the FBA New Selection program, we will waive the first CAD 135 in inbound transportation charges through the Amazon Partnered Carrier program. ASINs do not have to be new to FBA to get this discount.

Seller eligibility

Professional sellers will be eligible to receive program benefits. Sellers must be enrolled in the program before an ASIN’s first inventory-received date at an Amazon fulfilment centre for the ASIN to qualify for benefits.

ASIN eligibility

Only small standard and large standard-size items are eligible for the program.

Parent ASINs must not have been previously enrolled in FBA within the past 180 days.

ASINs in Media categories and used items are not eligible. Media categories are Books, DVDs, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, Video, Video Game Consoles, and Video Game Accessories.

Tip: Use our product search tool to see if your ASIN is new to FBA across Amazon’s Canada marketplace.

For more details, see the Program terms and conditions section below.

Frequently asked questions

Am I limited to sending 30 or fewer units to fulfilment centres?

No, you can send in as many units as you like. However, only the first 30 units of each eligible parent ASIN that are received at fulfilment centres will qualify for the fee waivers.

If I create more than 100 new-to-FBA parent ASINs, can I remove some from my eligible ASINs list?

No, only the first 100 new-to-FBA parent ASINs that you create will qualify for the fee waivers. Any new ASINs that you create after the first 100 will not qualify. However, the 100-parent-ASIN limit will be reset on 1 January each year.

I’m a new FBA seller. If my first inbound shipment charge is less than CAD 135, will the rest of the discount be applied to later shipments?

Yes. We will waive the first CAD 135 in Amazon Partnered Carrier inbound shipment charges for sellers new to FBA, until the seller reaches that threshold. The discount applies only to inbound shipment charges through the Amazon Partnered Carrier program.
