Fulfillment fee changes take effect January 18th, with storage and inventory changes also taking place later in the year, so be sure to evaluate how this will impact your Amazon brand’s margins accordingly.
Shipping weight may be based on either Unit Weight or Dimensional Weight. To calculate your Dimensional Weight, divide your Unit Volume (length x width x height) by 139.
Use the table below to determine your Product Size Tier. Note your single unit weight and dimensional weight and use whichever is larger. Standard-size products weighing 0.75 lb or less and special oversize products should use the unit weight.
