It's that time of year again - sellers are preparing for the holiday rush and Amazon has revealed 2023 Holiday Peak FBA Fulfillment fees.

The annual Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) will apply from October 15, 2023, to January 14, 2024. This seasonal fee is similar to those charged by other major carriers, and covers increased fulfillment and transportation operating costs during the busy holiday shopping season.

The Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee rates are unchanged from 2022 for US and Canada FBA. Inclusive of the Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee, Amazon’s average fulfillment fees continue to be 30% less expensive than slower standard shipping methods of other major third-party logistics providers.

The Holiday Peak Fulfillment Fee will apply to US FBA, Canada FBA, Remote Fulfillment with FBA, and Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) items except for US FBA items priced under $10.

You can review detailed rates by size and weight for US FBA, Canada FBA, Remote Fulfillment with FBA, and MCF on the following help pages:
