The benefits of FBA

Your products are eligible for Amazon Prime FREE Two-Day Shipping, FREE Shipping, and more.

Prime members love FREE Two-Day Shipping, and all Amazon.com customers can get free shipping on eligible orders. When you list products for FBA, they are eligible for free shipping, too. Qualified FBA listings are displayed with the Prime logo, so customers know that Amazon handles packing, delivery, customer service, and returns.

Customers get Amazon's trusted customer service and returns.

FBA leverages the Amazon customer service network stretching around the globe, managing customer inquiries, refunds, and returns for your FBA orders.
  • FBA customer support: Customers can contact our customer support via phone or email, day or night. This service is provided at no extra charge to you, with the exception of the Returns Processing Fee for select product categories. When you use FBA, your time can be spent growing your business or taking a vacation, rather than managing customer service
  • FBA returns: For orders from the Amazon.com website that Amazon fulfills, we will manage all customer service associated with fulfillment of your FBA products. Our Online Returns Center provides customers with help pages and details about how to contact us in case of concerns. If the customer wants to return a product, we direct them to our convenient Online Returns Center. Read more about FBA policies regarding Customer Returns for Orders Placed on Amazon.com.

It's cost-effective

Pay as you go—you are charged for storage space and the orders we fulfill. The cost of shipping is included in your fees, with no extra charge for Amazon Prime FREE Two-Day Shipping and free shipping on eligible orders. Fees for Selling on Amazon and optional services may apply.

FBA storage and fulfillment fees

Inventory storage fees

Charged for all items stored in an Amazon fulfillment center, and based on your daily average volume of inventory measured in cubic feet. See how to determine the product size tier for your items.

Long-term storage fees

Assessed monthly for all items stored in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days. Maintaining sound inventory health can help you avoid long-term storage fees.

Fulfillment fees

Charged per unit for picking and packing your orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns. Use the FBA revenue calculator to estimate fees and see how to preview your fees.

Unplanned services fees

Charged when inventory arrives at a fulfillment center without proper preparation or labeling, making unplanned services required.

Removal order fees

You can have Amazon return or dispose of your inventory in a fulfillment center for a per-item fee.

Returns processing fees

Charged on orders when Amazon provides a customer with free return shipping.
Learn more about the cost of FBA. Use the Fulfillment by Amazon Revenue Calculator on Seller Central to estimate your FBA fees.

FBA inventory management

Use the tools in your seller account to list products, create shipping plans, send in shipments, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfillment centers.

Inventory Performance Dashboard

Your Inventory Performance Dashboard displays your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score, along with key influencing factors. Be sure to check your IPI score regularly—a low score could lead to overage fees and limit your ability to send more inventory.

Manage excess inventory

Optimize your inventory levels by knowing when to mark down or remove your products. Monitor detailed information about storage fees, opportunities to drive sales, and suggestions to help improve returns on your inventory.

Track inventory age

Improve sell-through rates and avoid long-term storage fees. Use Inventory Age tools to understand how much inventory you’re holding, and see how long it’s been in fulfillment centers.

Fix stranded inventory

Keep your listings active by including necessary pricing and condition information and resolving errors. If your inventory is in fulfillment centers without an associated active listing, it’s not available for purchase.

Restock inventory

Maintaining your FBA inventory at the right level is key to offering fast delivery to Prime customers. Amazon’s restock tools on Seller Central can help you:
  • Get more one day and same day orders
  • Reduce out-of-stocks
  • Protect your sales rank
  • Minimize excess inventory
The tools offer recommendations based on your sales history, demand forecast and seasonality, and your inputs to help you determine how much inventory to send and when to send it. They are free to use, and directly integrated into Seller Central’s shipment creation workflow.
