Is your inventory subject to the Long-Term Storage Fee?

On August 15, 2015, inventory that has been in an Amazon fulfillment center in the U.S. for six to 12 months will be subject to a Long-Term Storage Fee of $11.25 per cubic foot. This is in addition to the August 15 fee assessment of $22.50 per cubic foot for units that have been in fulfillment centers in the U.S. or Canada for 365 days or more.

To see the age of your inventory in Amazon fulfillment centers and your estimated Long-Term Storage Fees, please view the Inventory Health Report (sign-in required). U.S. inventory that is subject to the six-to-12-month fee will appear in the downloadable version of the report only.

Please see the FBA Long-Term Storage help page for additional information.

Packaging rules updated for batteries

We are now taking steps to ensure that batteries are safe to store and prepare for shipment. Batteries that you sell now must be packaged in one of the following ways:

  • Original manufacturer packaging of clamshell plastic or blister packs
  • Repackaged batteries secured in boxes that have been taped or shrink-wrapped closed. Batteries must not be able to move freely in the boxes, and the battery terminals must not touch.
  • Repackaged batteries secured in clamshell plastic that has been taped or shrink-wrapped closed. The battery terminals must not touch within the packaging.
