Ahead of schedule, Amazon has rolled out the second phase of its strategy for Australia – launching FBA for Australian 3rd Party Sellers on Amazon.com.au.
The carrot being dangled to encourage 3rd Party Sellers to get on board is the Free Storage of your inventory until the 31st of August.
Amazon will charge 3rd Party sellers from $1.76 to fulfill an order that fits in a small envelope and up to $25.48 for a bulky order weighing up to 30 kilograms.It’ll charge $7.76 to pack and send an order weighing up to three kilograms. Australia Post charges $8.50 to send a parcel that size anywhere in Australia, so Amazon’s already looking a lot more competitive. If you’re doing volume, that’s a decent saving of about 9.5%, although, when you add the $1.76 pick and pack fee, it costs a little more.
Storage will be charged at $19.40 per cubic meter for the most of the year, and $26.50 per square meter in the busy Christmas shopping months from October to December.
As a 3rd Party Seller, we do pay a monthly fee of $49.95 to sell our products on Amazon, which takes a cut of sales between 6% and 15%, depending on the product category.
As more warehouses are created across Australia, Amazon’s FBA network will become much more efficient!
