One-Day Shipping Spurs Amazon to Offer Warehouse Discounts

Sellers get a break for storing at higher volumes


Amazon wants its third-party sellers to store more merchandise in its warehouses to ensure it has enough inventory of popular products to execute one-day shipping, so it is offering discounts on monthly storage fees up to 75%.

That’s according to an email to independent sellers from Fulfillment by Amazon, the service in which Amazon stores, packs and ships products on sellers’ behalf, which was sent to Adweek. A rep for Amazon confirmed the discount.

The email notes that more inventory on hand means Amazon can place goods closer to customers.
