FBA New Selection programme For EU Markets

Amazone FBA Programme

FBA New Selection programme For EU Markets

Starting April 1, 2020, participants in the FBA New Selection programme can qualify to get free monthly storage, free removals and free returns processing on eligible ASINs that are new to FBA across Amazon European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain). In addition, participants who are new to FBA can qualify to get a £80 discount on Amazon Partnered Carrier shipping.

To participate, sellers must opt in. After sellers opt in, Amazon will determine whether they qualify for the fee waivers. If eligible, sellers will be enrolled into the programme and will start getting benefits from April 1, 2020. Newly enrolled sellers will also become eligible for the current monthly storage and removal fee promotion benefits, which will remain active until March 31, 2020.

Sellers who are already participating in the monthly storage and removal fee promotion will be included automatically in the new programme and do not have to opt in.

By participating in the FBA New Selection programme, you agree to the terms and conditions below.

Programme details

  • Limited to new to  FBA New Selection programme parent ASINs: Sellers enrolled in the programme can take advantage of the fee waivers on up to 500 parent ASINs that are new to FBA across Amazon European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain). The 500-parent-ASIN limit will be reset annually on April 1.
  • Free monthly storage and free removals: FBA New Selection programme will waive monthly storage fees for the first 50 units of each new parent ASIN in the 90 days after the first unit is received at an Amazon fulfilment centre. If you are not in the Pan-European FBA programme, you will receive this benefit based on the first country of inbound. Sellers in the Pan-European FBA programme can inbound to any of the five Amazon European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) and get the monthly storage fee waived for the first 50 units combined across these marketplaces. Sellers can remove any of those first 50 units within 180 days after the first inventory-received date with no FBA removal fees.
  • Free returns processing for five product categories: For Clothing & Accessories, Shoes and Bags, Jewellery and Watches, FBA will waive return processing fees for up to 50 units of each parent ASIN. Returned items must be received at a fulfilment centre within 120 days of the first inventory-received date.
  • £80 inbound transportation charge discount (new FBA sellers only): For eligible sellers who are new to FBA across Amazon European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain), we will waive the first £80 in inbound transportation charges through the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme.

Seller eligibility

Professional sellers with no storage limit, in accordance with the FBA inventory storage limits policy, will be eligible to receive programme benefits.

ASIN eligibility

Only standard-size items are eligible for the programme.

Parent ASINs must be new to FBA across Amazon European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain).

ASINs in Media categories and used items are not eligible. Media categories are Books, DVDs, Music, Software & Computer/Video Games, Video, Video Game Consoles, and Video Game Accessories.

Since we charge a returns processing fee on ASINs in the Clothing & Accessories, Shoes and Bags, Jewellery or Watches category, the free return processing only applies to the ASINs in these categories.

For more details, refer to the Programme terms and conditions section below.

Frequently asked questions

Am I limited to sending 50 or fewer units to fulfilment centres?

You can send in as many units as you like. However, only the first 50 units of each eligible ASIN that are received at fulfilment centres will qualify for the fee waivers.

If I create more than 500 new-to-FBA parent ASINs, can I remove some from my eligible ASINs list?

Only the first 500 new-to-FBA parent ASINs that you create will qualify for the fee waivers. Any new ASINs you create after the first 500 will not qualify. However, the 500-parent-ASIN limit will be reset on April 1 each year.

I am a new FBA seller. If my first inbound shipment charge is less than £80 , will the rest of the discount be applied to later shipments?

Yes. We will waive the first £80 in Amazon Partnered Carrier inbound shipment charges for sellers new to FBA New Selection programme. For example, if a discount of £70 is applied to your first shipment, the inbound transportation charge for your second shipment will be discounted by £10 . The discount applies only to inbound shipment charges through the Amazon Partnered Carrier programme.

I am already participating in the EU monthly storage and removal fee promotion. Should I opt in to this programme?

Sellers who are already participating in the monthly storage and removal fee promotion that began in March 2019 will be included automatically in the new programme and do not have to opt in. We will extend the EU monthly storage and removal fee promotion until March 31, 2020. All promotional benefits end March 31, 2020.

Can I test an ASIN in one European marketplace if it already exists in a different one?

No. ASINs you create must be new across all five of Amazon’s European marketplaces (United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, and Spain) to be eligible for this promotion. ASINs that already exist and are sold through FBA in another European marketplace are not eligible for this promotion.

Can I test a new ASIN in two countries, for example in the UK and Germany?

Sellers who participate in the Pan-European FBA programme can test an ASIN across European marketplaces at one time. However, sellers who do not participate in the Pan-European FBA programme can test an ASIN in only one European marketplace. In either case, the ASIN must be new to FBA in all five of Amazon’s European marketplaces.

If my ASINs are EAN exempt or do not have an EAN number, will they still qualify for the promotion?

Yes. If the created ASINs meet all the eligibility criteria and adhere to the ASIN creation policy, they will qualify to get the benefits.
