2/13 fee changes
« on: January 06, 2013, 09:28:38 AM »
I just got shocked!

In the email about the fee changes for over sized items
Apparently there is mention of category's that Amazon Fba is giving customers free returns and the seller will get hit with that cost
Apparel, jewelry, watches, shoes and luggage

Oh this is going to hurt, ALOT!

Glad I don't sell large oversize or special oversize stuff!!!  :o I suspect a lot of that will go away from FBA at those prices. But maybe that's Amazon's goal.

Truthfully, seeing the list that way reminds me just how much we are handing Amazon to pack and ship our stuff. If they continue in this vein, I think they will kill their FBA. I love FBA, too. But there comes a price point where it's no longer worth it.

BTPS, they don't say how much the seller will be charged for those items, but I'm presuming it's significant.  :-(

I may have to re-think my grand FBA plan for this year.

I believe our oversized items
Will go DOWN with the new 130 inches instead of the 18" or 5 " side

It's the extra return fee on our $8.99 earrings
That could add up fast

$8.99 a pair of earrings?
That's hefty.

Would these costs be the same if you had a website via Amazon Webstore AND had Amazon doing the fulfillment?
