Each Amazon marketplace has its own unique calculator, so first of all, you must pay attention that, if you sell in Amazon UK for example, you don't opt for the calculator of Amazon US. Find a product similar to the one(s) you are selling (for example, men's pants).Amazon charges based on the product's weight and dimension, which you can typically find in the product information, such as in the example below. Best way to use Amazon FBA calculatorCopy the product's ASIN number (see above) and paste it into the FBA calculator:You will then input your costs into the calculator, including the product's intended selling price and shipping cost.  Amazon will then generate the results.Use Amazon FBA calculatorThe Amazon calculator displays:
  • Selling on Amazon fee
  • Fulfillment By Amazon fee
  • Fee for the seller to ship the Item to Amazon
  • Total fulfillment cost (Selling on Amazon fee + FBA + shipping cost)
  • Net profit

Be mindful that the FBA calculator does NOT display two other vital fees: pick & pack fees, and S&H costs.  Those you do through separate menus, when you decide on a shipping plan.
