Last year, Amazon FBA created a special pricing tier called Zero Fee Fulfillment in which standard-size items selling on Amazon.com for over $500 would be eligible for zero fulfillment fees. This year, Amazon.com has lowered the threshold from $500 to $300. Fulfillment fees that are waived include Order Handling, Pick & Pack, and Weight Handling fees. Selling on Amazon fees, storage fees and other applicable fees still apply.

More information about Amazon Zero Fee Fulfillment pricing is available on this page on the Amazon.com website.

And have you ever wondered what happens if you get negative feedback related to the fulfillment services provided by Amazon, and how Amazon FBA handles returns and refunds? See the "FBA Manual 7.5.1 Service for Orders Placed on Amazon.com" on this Amazon.com help page.
