Amazon announced the reopening of Seller Fulfilled Prime back in June, with an effective date of October 1, but received quick backlash from sellers over an additional 2% fee that would be charged on Seller Fulfilled Prime orders.

Amazon Backs Down On Seller Fulfilled Prime Fee For Not Using Amazon Logistics
Amazon is backing down on 2% fees for sellers who use Seller Fulfilled Prime without using Amazon logistics services.

Amazon eventually backed down and removed the additional fee, they said due to listening to seller feedback.

However, many skeptical sellers believed it may have had more to do with impending FTC concerns than trying to garner good will with sellers - a theory that is bolstered by the fact the FTC filed their long awaited antitrust suit against Amazon about a week after this decision.
