When Can You Expect the Changes?
On March 1st, 2023. The new increased Amazon fees for core FBA and Small and Light units will come into effect for the UK, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain. This also includes items that are bulky but light. The fee changes will then be implemented in the Netherlands, Sweden, Poland, and Belgium on May 15th, 2023.
Do the Changes Apply to Orders Made Before March 1st?
The Amazon fees are charged when shipments leave the fulfilment centres and are calculated accordingly. So, if a product is ordered before March 1st but shipped on or after that date, the new increased fee rates will apply.
How is Dimensional Weight Calculated?
The dimension-based fees in kilograms are figured out by dividing (length x width x height cm3) by 5,000.
Amazon will apply this calculation if it exceeds the unit weight for core FBA units including parcel size bands and oversize units except for special oversize. However, envelopes and Small and Light units will be based on unit weight. This rule will become effective for all parcel size bands as of March 1st, 2023.
