FBA Fees Calculation

FBA Fees Calculation

FBA fees are calculated from the total of Storage Fees and Fulfillment Fees. See below for more details on each fee.

FBA Fee Rate Card (PDF) is also available.

Storage Fees

The cubic volume of all products stored in the Amazon fulfillment center is calculated based on their measurements (* 1) , and the actual amount of space required for storing the products. Fees are calculated on a daily basis for each fulfillment center. The following storage fees are charged per month only for the actual amount of space used. (* 2).

 

Storage MonthStorage Fee
January - SeptemberJPY 7.800 x {[Product Size (cm3 )] (/ 10cm x 10cm x 10cm)} x [Counts of Storage Days / Counts of Days in the Month]
October - DecemberJPY 9.000 x {[Product Size (cm3 )] (/ 10cm x 10cm x 10cm)} x [Counts of Storage Days / Counts of Days in the Month]

 

*1 : The measurements of any unit will be based on the unit's size as properly packaged and ready for shipment to customers in accordance with the FBA Program Policies.
*2 : Monthly storage fees are rounded to the nearest whole number. The sums include consumption tax.

Example: A toy being stored for 30 days in June

JPY 7.800 × { (11.4×22.5×35.5) / (10×10×10) } ×(30 [Storage Days] / 30 [Days in the Month]) = JPY 71.024

Fulfillment fee details

※ It is necessary for the sizes of all three sides of the product (including packaging), when sorted in the order of (1) the longest side, (2) the second longest side, and (3) the shortest side, to meet the size standards. For example, the shortest side (3) of a package 21 x 21 x 21 in size would exceed the 20cm limit for the shortest side (3) o f a standard-size product, so it would be handled as an oversize product.

※ The FBA service cannot be used with packages for which 1) the total of the three sides exceeds 200cm, 2) the total of the three sides exceeds 170 cm (including 170cm) and any side exceeds 90cm (including 90cm), or 3) the packages that exceed 40kg.

※ Amazon will be entitled to make its own measurement of the volume in cubic meters or the weight of any packaged unit or representative sample thereof and in the event of any conflict between such measurement and information provided by the sellers, Amazon's measurement will govern.
