Just announced Amazon fuel and inflation surcharge: what it means to you

Amazon is trying to offset the rising cost of gas with a new fuel and inflation surcharge. The 5% surcharge will take effect on April 28, according to a note obtained by CNN. The e-commerce giant will be collecting it from third-party sellers who use its fulfillment services.

Third party sellers who do not rely on Amazon fulfillment services will not be affected by the surcharge. Amazon’s fulfillment services include the storage, packaging, and shipping of products to consumers. A report by Jungle Scout (PDF) shows that nearly 89% of Amazon’s 2 million third-party sellers used Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) services in 2021.
