Amazon fees too high

Hello everybody.

Im about to ship a product to AMZ FBA warehouse, the product is 12x9x2,5 cm and the weight is 100 grams.

Amazon has just informed me that the fee will be around 8$

This seems a lot to me, do Amazon calculate this from the price or from weight and size?

And is it possible to bring this number down?

All the best

There are 2 charges. Amazon commission is calculated on a percentage of the selling price.

FBA fulfillment fee is calculated by size and weight.


Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) fee is a flat fee per unit, based on the size and weight of the product. Use the size tiers, to calculate the shipping weight and fee that will be applied.
