Amazon announced Dec. 19 that it will raise its multi-channel fulfillment fees starting Jan. 19, 2023.
The eCommerce giant said raising the fees will allow for faster shipping speeds and will “reflect the significant investments that we’ve made to improve our shipping speeds and add new features.” Amazon also said it will roll out free integrator apps and enhanced shipment tracking functionality.
“MCF will continue to provide best-in-class fulfillment services — which are, on average, priced lower than alternatives — with up to 50% discounts on multi-unit orders, and unbranded packaging at no additional cost,” the company said in its announcement.
Amazon said it plans on improving its standard shipping speed from seven days — from “click to deliver” — to 5 days. The company also said it will offer expedited three-day shipping and priority two-day shipping.
