Amazon made two announcements Monday regarding sellers using its FBA fulfillment services. It adds another type of storage for “extra large” items; and he’s making a change to his “Small and Light” program.
Amazon has announced that starting April 18, 2022, another storage type will be available to sellers: extra-large, which is in addition to the oversized storage type.
Amazon will automatically reclassify inventory for sellers who qualify for the extra-large storage type, he said. “This new type of storage gives you more flexibility in managing your inventory and quantity limits for larger items.”
He did not detail the impact of the change on fees in the announcement – he told sellers to go to FBA Extra Large Inventory for more information. “To see which of your inventory is considered extra-large, check your item dimensions in the Monthly Storage Fee Report,” he said.
Amazon also announced a change to its Small and Light program on Monday:
“We are pleased to announce that FBA Small and Light will increase the price threshold for eligible products from $8 to $10, effective April 28, 2022.
“This change allows more of your products to become eligible for the program and qualify for fulfillment discounts. Other program eligibility criteria, such as product weight limits and dimensions, will remain as same.
“Small and Light offers lower fulfillment costs on qualified items, helping you sell more of your low-priced products to the hundreds of millions of Amazon customers who shop at our stores around the world.
