The Clap Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) will raise its fulfillment fee for the holidays to cope with inflation.
The Deets Third-party sellers who want to use the fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) service will need to pay 35 cents per item sold. This comes on top of existing fees that sellers pay for using the FBA service.
Amazon stated that increasing prices made it higher for Amazon to absorb the costs, and so they need to spread out that cost over their sellers.
This is the first time Amazon increased its seller fees for the holiday season.
