FBA Lost and Damaged Inventory Reimbursement Policy

We maintain high standards when it comes to taking care of your inventory. However, occasionally accidents do happen. Under circumstances where Amazon takes responsibility for paying you the Replacement Value of an item as set forth in the FBA Service Terms, we will reimburse you based on our estimate of fair market value less FBA and Selling on Amazon fees that are applicable to the item. We will consider several factors in our estimate of the fair market value of the item, including your sales history, list price and other sellers' list prices of the item on If we determine that there is insufficient information available to estimate the fair market value of the item, then the Replacement Value will be determined based on the applicable Default Replacement Value from the table below. In the event that you disagree with our determination of the Replacement Value of your item, we may request further evidence of fair market value in the form of a receipt or invoice to facilitate a re-evaluation. In no event will the Replacement Value for an individual item exceed GBP 2000.00. For items with values greater than GBP 2000.00, we recommend considering third-party insurance.
