FBA weight handling question: According to Amazon “This fee is the weight based shipping fee for Fulfillment by Amazon orders. This fee is calculated based on the weight of the item.” I am looking at an item that should weigh about 8 ozs. (not including box and packing material). However, when I look at the listing, it says 3.4 lbs! This is obviously a mistake. How do we handle such discrepencies? The weight handling fee for 8 ozs is $0.63 vs $2.37 for 3.4 lbs. Obviously I dont want to over pay for this mistake. And who decides how much these items actually weigh? I did not create this listing, btw – it was already in the Amazon catalog.
I weigh all of my items before I send them in. It’s part of building a listing. Amazon was pretty accommodating when they weighed my product wrong when I ask them to relay it. I would just estimate on some of your listings if they seem really high to have them reweigh your item. It saved me $0.15 per item I was selling about 50 of these items at a and over Christmas nearly 200 so it saved me a ton of money by getting it checked.
