Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a popular fulfillment method that is offered across the various Amazon marketplaces. In this model, warehousing, shipping, returns, and customer service are handled by Amazon themselves. This not only saves you time, but it provides the buyer with the confidence they need to make a purchase.

While the FBA program will save you time, it does come with some additional fees. Some of the attributes that factor into your FBA fees include:

  • Shipment weight
  • Warehousing requirements
  • Handling
  • Your account (Individual or Professional seller)
  • Long-term storage

In the image below, you can see a brief breakdown of long-term storage fees:

Before selling any product on Amazon, you should take the time to familiarize yourself with the estimated fees. Algopix is an Amazon product research tool that provides you with estimated Amazon fees, profit margins, taxes, demand and competition levels, and more.
