Discount promotion for Small and Light offers

Last published: October 5, 2018

FBA Small and Light is promoting some products priced $5 and under by offering a 5% price discount if the customer orders two or more units of the same item. FBA covers the cost of the discount – it won't change what you’re paid for your items.

The discount is offered on select items in the Consumables category, including Beauty, Health & Personal, Grocery, and Baby. No action is required to participate in the promotion -- we pick the products and handle the promotions.

Monthly long-term storage fees start September 15​

Last published: August 27, 2018

As previously announced, long-term storage fees for inventory in US fulfillment centers are being adjusted and are changing from twice yearly to monthly. FBA’s first monthly inventory cleanup is September 15, 2018.

Units that have been in a fulfillment center for 181 to 365 days as of September 15 will incur a long-term storage fee of $3.45 per cubic foot on that date. Units that have been in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days will incur a fee of $6.90 per cubic foot.

There is a minimum charge of $0.50 per unit per month for items that have been in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days. Either the long-term storage fee or the minimum fee will apply, whichever is greater. For more information, see FBA long-term storage fees (sign-in required).

To see your inventory that is subject to long-term storage fees, go to FBA Inventory Age or download the Inventory Age report.
