Sellers who use Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) will be charged an extra 5% because of the rise in shipping and fuel prices.

Starting on April 28, Amazon will add a surcharge for using its shipping and warehouse services. However, the surcharge is not permanent and is “a mechanism broadly used across supply chain providers,” Amazon stated in a message to sellers and which was shared with Reuters.

Amazon stated in the message: “We have experienced significant cost increases and absorbed them, wherever possible, to reduce the impact on our selling partners. In 2022, we expected a return to normalcy as COVID-19 restrictions around the world eased, but fuel and inflation have presented further challenges.”

For now, the surcharge is only applicable in the United States.
