Add-on items are low-price items that would be cost prohibitive to ship on their own. These items can be anything from a jar of paprika to a fishing lure. The Add-on programme allows Amazon to offer the selection to customers even though certain items are cost prohibitive to ship as single units. Add-on items are available for purchase with items shipped by Amazon that exceed the Add-on order threshold, excluding gift cards.
For details we provide to customers, see Buy Add-on Items.
To improve the customer experience, Add-on items are marked with an "Add-on" badge throughout the shopping experience. However, due to the dynamic nature of economics, we are unable to notify sellers when items move in and out of the programme. The automated system reviews items daily; as such, Add-on items can change frequently.
Prime customers receive Prime benefits on their Add-on items only when their order is over the Add-on order threshold.
The Add-on programme is managed by an automated system that adds and removes items from the programme daily. We cannot manually remove items from the programme by request. To exempt or remove your item from Add-on eligibility, you must exclude or remove the item from FBA.
Eligibility for the Add-on programme depends on many factors. Although two ASINs are similarly priced, it is possible that one seller's ASIN is in Add-on while another seller's ASIN is not.
Because Add-on eligibility depends on many factors, variations of the same ASIN that are priced the same can have differing Add-on status. Add-on inclusion is based on selling price in addition to other factors contributing to the item being cost-prohibitive to ship as a single unit.
Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) fees will apply to Add-on items exactly as they apply to other items. We only apply order handling fees once to each order regardless of how many Add-on items a buyer orders.
We are not making any changes to the LTSF concerning Add-on items. They will be assessed the same way as any other items.
Please contact Seller Support for assistance on removing items from Amazon fulfilment centres.
