The beginning of October is the peak season for foreign e-commerce platforms, and sellers are not worried about the order volume in the next period of time because of the end of the Prime membership day in autumn. However , as the peak season approaches, Amazon’s delivery and storage fees will rise again, and the operating costs of cross-border sellers will continue to be pushed up.
Amazon said in a statement that it had made a "difficult decision" to charge sellers during the peak season for peak holiday sales . Specifically: From October 15, 2022 to January 14, 2023, items sold using Amazon FBA in the US and Canada will be charged an average of $ 0.35 per item .
Specific fee increases vary by item size, category and weight. Compared to off-peak delivery fees, the range of this fee increase is not small.
It is Amazon's consistent practice to charge additional delivery fees during peak seasons. Not only delivery fees, but also storage fees during peak seasons. In response to the reasons for the price increase in distribution, the platform said that due to the high concentration of shipments in the year-end sales season, the entire industry will face the pressure of increasing logistics and warehousing costs.
In fact, not only Amazon will increase delivery fees during the peak season every year, but the US Postal Service, FedEx, etc. will also increase prices. No matter which channel cross-border sellers take, operating costs will increase.
Everyone should check the changes in the FBA fees of their products accordingly . Since the fact that the delivery fee is rising cannot be changed, let’s find a breakthrough in terms of packaging, product competitiveness, and price.
