Amazon has made the FBA New Selection Programme even better for 2023, offering more benefits for sellers who want to grow their businesses. This article covers the important details of the programme, its benefits, and how to qualify as a brand – both on a seller and product level.
Key Benefits of the FBA New Selection Programme
Free Storage and Product Removal
Amazon offers free storage for the first 50 units of each new parent ASIN for 90 days. Sellers can also remove the first 50 units within 180 days without any removal fees.
Free Returns Processing for Some Categories
Amazon doesn’t charge return processing fees for up to 20 units of each parent ASIN in apparel categories like shoes, bags and watches. This can be a real boost for a new seller.
