FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) is something that all Amazon sellers should be familiar with. The FBA program was designed to streamline the selling process. In this system, sellers ship their products to the nearest Amazon warehouse. Once received, Amazon will handle all customer service and order fulfillment for your products.

Using FBA means you won’t have to do the labor-intensive work yourself, and your customers will enjoy the speed and reliability of Amazon’s shipping service. In fact, applying FBA options to your listing is one of the best ways to attract potential buyers.

However, these benefits do come with fees. FBA fees, while moderately low, are notoriously complex to track because there are many variables that influence them. Your shipment weight and dimensions, as well as how long you’re keeping the items in their warehouse, affect how much you will be paying and may require you to revise your pricing strategy.

An Amazon fee calculator like Algopix makes it easy for you to determine your FBA fees, showing you exactly how much a product’s potential fees will be before you ever make a sale
