Inventory storage fees

Storage fees are based on the daily average volume (measured in cubic metres) for the space your inventory occupies in fulfilment centres. The volume measurement is based on unit size when properly packaged and ready to ship in accordance with FBA policies and requirements.

Amazon may make its own measurement of the cubic metre or weight of packaged units or representative samples. In the event of any conflict between an Amazon measurement and information provided by the seller, Amazon's measurement will govern.

All prices are in Australian Dollars (AUD) and do not include applicable taxes, such as GST.

Monthly inventory storage fee

Inventory storage fees are charged typically between the 7th and 15th day of the month following the month for which the fee applies. For example, to see your inventory storage fee for January, refer to the February Payments report for transactions from 7-15 February.

Month Cost per cubic metre per month
January–September $19.40
October–December $26.50

Long-term inventory storage fee

From 15 May, 2019, long-term storage fees in the Australian marketplace will be assessed at a rate of $160 per cubic metre (per month) or $0.10 per unit (per month), whichever is greater. The assessment date will be the 15th of every month. Long-term storage fees only apply to inventory that has been in a fulfilment centre for more than 365 days on the assessment date.
