Amazon recently shared updates regarding its Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee for the FBA program. This annual fee will be effective from October 15, 2023, to January 14, 2024. Aiming to cover the augmented costs of fulfillment and transportation during the bustling holiday season, this fee aligns with those other leading carriers impose. Notably, the 2023 Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee rates will remain the same as those of 2022 for both the US and Canada FBA. Even after accounting for this fee, Amazon’s fulfillment charges are still approximately 30% more affordable than the slower standard shipping options of other primary third-party logistics entities.
This fee will be applied to several FBA categories: US FBA, Canada FBA, Remote Fulfillment with FBA, and Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF). However, items under the US FBA category priced below $10 will be exempted.
