Amazon increased the logistics fee up to 5 percent in India due to a hike in fuel prices
Amazon, a retail sector giant, has increased the logistics fee up to 5 percent in India. It is reported that the fee is based on the distance and weight of the shipped goods. It also includes an increase in the marketplace fee for some categories, and this fee structure will be effective from September 1, Amazon India said to its merchants on its platform.
The increase in the fee is because of the recent hike in fuel prices, which has led to increased delivery costs for each order. Prices of petrol and diesel across the country have mounted, and the logistics fee increase will compensate for this. The company has also increased the referral fee for headsets and headphones, earphones, toys, and beauty products.
Till now, Amazon has increased the market fee of 82 categories and has also made significant changes in a fee component called 'closing fees.' Some of these fee changes are envisioned to help sellers explore its Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA) program that will help them scale up their businesses and selling process.
