It is reported that Amazon announced on March 2 that it will reduce the cost of multi-channel distribution (MCF). Similar to FBA, merchants use MCF to let Amazon fulfill orders from external channels on the Amazon market (such as orders from merchants’ own websites).
Some sellers are happy, and some are wary, because Amazon just added some fees last month. One seller hopes that Amazon can resume using non-branded packaging to process orders from outside Amazon.
Sellers can find new MCF rates on Amazon Seller Central that will take effect next month.
Amazon provides examples of how the new fees affect various products. For example, the current standard shipping cost for a tablet bag weighing 9 ounces is $ 5.85; on April 1, the price will drop to $ 4.95. Expedited shipping costs will also change, and priority shipping costs will not change.
Amazon announcements are as follows:
The Amazon Amazon multi-channel shipping fee update will take effect on April 1, 2020.
From April 1, 2020, Amazon will reduce the cost of expedited shipping for 2 days (depending on the size class of the item, the maximum reduction can be up to 30%), reduce the price of standard shipping, and launch for standard and expedited shipping New size class.
The next day priority shipping costs will remain the same, and MCF will continue to offer discounted prices for multi-unit orders.
