Tips & Tricks # 46 – Accurately calculate fulfillment fees as an EU seller by choosing a home Marketplace & FBA Fulfillment Shipping model
AZInsight has the ability to calculate the FBA fees for EU sellers accurately based on Home Marketplace and the seller shipping model a seller has chosen. The three shipping models AZInsight supports are Domestic, Central European, and Pan-EU. The Domestic limits Amazon to store, distribute, and sell your inventory only within your home country. The Central European model allows Amazon to spread, store, distribute, and sell your inventory between the main fulfillment centers in Poland or Czech Republic Fulfillment Centers to be sent out to customers within the EU. Under the Pan- EU model Amazon will store, distribute, and sell your inventory throughout its distribution centers throughout the EU network.
Note: It is the responsibility of the Amazon Seller to maintain and comply with the local VAT regulations in the countries your inventory is being sold in.
Here is how to set your home marketplace and select the FBA Fulfillment shipping model AZInsight uses:
- Click on the Gear Settings icon.
- Click on Calculator Settings
- Locate and expand the section that says FBA Fulfillment Model
- Select your shipping model based on what you have set on Amazon Seller Central
- Locate and expand the section that says EU Home Marketplace
Click the checkbox that corresponds to your home country (this must match the country set on the business address set on Amazon Seller Central)
Click SAVE to apply your changes.
