Blog Post created by gennyr Employee on Oct 11, 2018

Amazon's next FBA cleanup is just around the corner on October 15th. In case you missed it, Amazon is now assessing long-term storage fees monthly (as of last month) rather than semi-annually - the fee breakdown from Seller Central is below and you can access the full details here.

 

Starting September 15, 2018, long-term storage fees will be adjusted and the assessment dates will be changed from a semi-annual basis to a monthly basis.

These changes also affect storage fees for the Multi-Channel Fulfillment and FBA Small and Lightprograms.
