Who will this impact?

This update only impacts sellers who are relying on the Multi-Channel fulfillment program to fulfill their own website’s orders (or orders for any non-Amazon 3rd party marketplaces). If this update impacts you, we recommend reviewing these changes as early as possible, and be sure to account for the new fees as you assess your product offering. The fee changes might seem small, but they do add up and may result in you not reaching your desired profit margins depending on the situation.
