FBA sellers enjoy the convenience of letting Amazon store, pick, pack and ship their orders in exchange for FBA fees. Sellers’ products are eligible for Amazon Prime FREE two-day shipping, FREE shipping, and more. Your customers benefit from Amazon’s trusted customer service and returns. And overall, the FBA program is a win-win situation for both businesses and Amazon.
But all good business partnerships are not without complications and challenges. What’s more, some business challenges are deeply hidden and go without notice for weeks or even months, creating havoc on your business profits.
One such hidden challenge is the often-missed fee miscalculation error for Amazon FBA sellers.
Here is how FBA Seller fee errors happen.
Every product has a specific dimension and weight. In some cases, Amazon may over-measure and over-weigh products; or even just take the average dimensions of similar products sold by other sellers.
When there is a miscalculation of fees, your product is being charged for a larger dimension or weight size than the actual dimension and weight. A simple $1 or $2 miscalculation spanning across the hundreds or thousands of units you ship each day, week, or month, can add up quickly. If the error goes unnoticed for a long period of time, think of the revenue your company has lost.
