Default FBA Calculator Page is not accurate

Anyone have the same problem like I have?

The FBA Calculator Page provide incorrect fee and profit. The fee always cheaper than the actual fee.

Tony this is to do with GST/VAT on selling fees. If you enter a GST/VAT number this will reduce the price. This is also charged on your self fulfilled merchant fees if you have not noticed. If you sell in UK as a US citizen/company they will not charge this and visa versa.

if you are selling cheap items FBA fee is usually higher, as you go up in price the advantage takes over and even more so for weight.

with the fba calculator u have to include ALL your cost, packaging materials (envelope/box, shipping label), gas to drop that stuff off, tape, time to package it. in the end FBA is usually cheaper

I believe amazon collects sales tax for you on FBA sales.

GameFreak,

I'm just compare between the real fee in my seller center and with the FBA Calculator page. Not with fulfillment by myself

Micky,
I don't think Amazon collect on your behalf. I check all the items that FBA from other seller and none of them collect tax except for Amazon themself

Tony, I had this issue and it was to do with tax. BEST THING is ask customer service via e mail and they will explain the difference as there should be none.

Micky, no need to contact them. I just use the FBA Calculator on the new product I want to sale to see how much profit it is. I set my profit should be $20-$30 each so just $1-$2 off it's no problem.

Thank you

Wait for a sale to go through, then you get the breakdown in seller central. Then you will be able to compare with the FBA calculator.
