5 Pro Tips to Lower FBA Fees

Tip #1: Ship in Bulk

As you may know Amazon’s official FBA courier charges based on each item's dimensions and weight. So, instead of sending each item separately, consider collecting a quantity of products and sending them in one box.

So, if you sell 10 items, you need to pay FBA fees on 10 items. But if you bundle those 10 items together as a single unit, then you only pay fees for one item.

But be careful and do not exceed Amazon’s 50 lb. limit per box.

Tip #2: Create your Own FBA Shipping Plan

If you let Amazon choose FC (Fulfillment Centers) for you, there is no guarantee that they will choose the one that will be the most cost-effective for you. In fact, they charge you every time they change facilities. So set aside some time to create your own FBA shipping plan, as this means you will tell Amazon exactly where you want your products to be stored.

To create your own plan follow Amazon’s instructions.

Tip #3: Do Not Pay for Boxes

Cost of boxes is always added and can reach hundreds of dollars. Speak to your local stores and ask to collect their used boxes for a low price. Very often they give them for free.

Tip #4: Send Only Right Items to an Amazon FC

First of all, avoid storing items that cost less than $15. Storage fees do not depend on the product's price and are the same for $1 and $100 items, if their dimensions, weight and fulfilment costs are the same. So the profit margin will be harder to make up on the $1 item.

Secondly, try to limit the number of heavy items you store, as you pay extra for their added weight.

Lastly, avoid storing really large items, especially for a long term. Do it only if these products are very, very profitable.

Tip #5: Join the Community

Join Amazon social groups, as a lot of people share their experience and answer questions in real time. Start with Facebook and do not be afraid to ask questions, it is very likely that someone already solved the same problem. Good luck!
