Amazon has announced changes to its Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) program, which will affect fees for fulfilling sellers’ off-Amazon orders. Effective from February 5, 2024, these changes include an average MCF fee increase of 3.5% across all delivery speeds, which Amazon highlights as being lower than the 5.9% average increase by other carriers.
For items weighing less than 1 lb, the MCF fees will either remain the same or be slightly reduced for standard shipping speeds. Additionally, Amazon is introducing a new smaller size tier for items weighing 4 oz and modifying its size tiers by adding Large Bulky and Extra-Large categories, replacing the current Oversize tiers. Sellers can view the current and upcoming rates on the Amazon Seller Central page.
