This week, Amazon news revolves around the Central Europe program. We show you what changes have been made to this program recently. We also highlight the various advantages that sellers have as a result. In this context, we also inform you about promotions that are currently running. In addition, there will be changes to the donation program for FBA products in the UK in June 2022. Here you can find out exactly what this involves.
Let's get started with the benefits in the Amazon Central Europe program. By storing FBA items in a fulfillment center in Central Europe, you can save on FBA fulfillment fees. The fulfillment centers for the program are located in Poland and the Czech Republic. In fact, you will pay 25 cents less in fees per unit since April 2022. To better understand this, imagine you sell 4000 items per year through Amazon's Central Europe program. In this constellation, you save 1000 euros in fees every year. Since June 2022, there is also a promotion running that allows sellers to save even more. If you sign up for the program by November 30, 2022, you will save an additional 50 cents per unit. The only thing you need to do is activate the "Store in Germany, Poland and the Czech Republic" setting in Seller Central.
If you choose to store inventory from your FBA assortment in Poland or the Czech Republic, it is recommended to use Amazon VAT services as well. For the first year, sales tax ID registration is even completely free. If you are also interested in how to store correct tax codes for products, you can find an Amazon tax code list in our SellerKnowledge.
On June 28, 2022, an eight-week course will start, where users of Helium 10 Adtomic will learn about the tool in detail. Adtomic is an advertising platform for Amazon Sellers, which offers you numerous ways to optimize your PPC projects without wasting time. All information on how to register for the course can be found here.
To ensure a better circular economy, sellers will no longer be able to opt out of the donation program for FBA products in the UK. By doing this, Amazon wants to ensure that fewer products are simply disposed of. This can, for example, affect products that do not sell or that the seller does not want to take back.
