Closing Fee (based on Price)

Closing Fee is charged every time your product is sold on Amazon based on the price range of the product. This fee also varies based on the fulfillment channel you are using.

Weight Handling Fee (Shipping Fee)

If you use Easy Ship or Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), Amazon will deliver your products to the customer and charge you a fee. (If you are choosing to Self-Ship, you will have to bear the cost of shipping and deliver through 3rd party courier service/own delivery agents).

Different fee rates are applicable based on distance.
  • Local rate will be applicable where the pickup and delivery happen in the same city i.e. intra-city pickup and delivery.
  • Regional zone consists of four regions. Regional rate will apply if shipment moves within the same region and the service is not within the same city.
  • National rate will apply if shipment moves across regions.
Your product size classification depends on the product weight and length, width & height once packed.
Size Guidelines
  • Your products will be classified as either Standard or Heavy Bulky.
  • An item is classified as 'Heavy & Bulky' if it meets one or more of the following criteria:
    • Item from categories such as washing machines, refrigerator, air conditioner, microwave, chimney, dishwashers, television, treadmills, cycles (wheel diameter > 20”), large furniture (e.g. beds, sofa sets, wardrobes etc.), deep freezers, or
    • Item package weight is more than 22.5 kg or
    • Maximum (item package length, item package width, item package height) > 72” or 183 cm or
    • Girth > 118” or 300 cm #Girth = [Length + 2*(Width + Height)]
    • Multi box items or Items requiring carpenter installation (non DIY)
  • For standard-size items, the minimum chargeable weight is 500 gms. In case of items that weigh more than 500 gms, you will be charged in multiples of the price applicable for each 500 gms. For example, the Amazon Easy Ship Weight-Handling Fees for 800 gms package being shipped to a regional location will amount to INR 68 i.e. INR 51 (charge for first 500 gms) + INR17 (charge for next 500 gms).
  • Amazon Shipping Fees is computed on volumetric or actual weight, whichever is higher. Volumetric weight is calculated as Volumetric Weight (kg) = (Length x Breadth x Height)/5000 where LBH are in cm.

How to calculate Shipping Fees:

FBA & Easy Ship Shipping Fees
Total Shipping Fees = Fees based on item weight (refer size guidelines above) and distance (refer shipping regions above)

Example 1: if your item (containing book) weighing 700 gms is shipped from Delhi to Chandigarh (same region, but different city, i.e. Regional shipping) through FBA then Shipping or Weight handling Fees = ₹ 40 + ₹ 17 = ₹ 57

Example 2: If your item weighing 3.5kgs (containing electronic item) is shipped by Easy Ship from Banalore to Shillong (across region, i .e. national shipping), then Shipping fees = ₹ 72 + ₹25 + (₹27*3) = ₹178

Example 3: if your item weighing 19 kgs (containing Chimney, which is Heavy and Bulky item) is shipped from your Bangalore warehouse to customer address in same city (Local shipping), using Easy Ship then shipping fees = ₹192 + (₹5*7) = ₹ 227
Self Ship
For Self-ship, there is no shipping fees as you will have to take care of delivery yourself or with the help of courier partner, who you will have to pay directly for the cost of delivery.
NOTE: These fee rates are applicable for new sellers who will join the "Standard" level in the Amazon STEP program. As sellers move up levels, they will be able to unlock multiple benefits including fee waivers, account management, faster disbursement cycles & more.
