Warehousing Fees

Each unit stored in the warehouse generates a daily fee based on its size. As a seller, you can download a complete report on your units and storage fees generated.

Pickup and Discarding Fees

These rates will depend on the item’s size within its primary packaging.

Fees for stock storage service at Full

The service for storing stock at Full has a cost; it will apply to all the units you have in the warehouse according to the time they are stored and charged monthly.

We will make sure the fee is minimal to not impact your operation. This fee charges units stored in the warehouse and will have a daily fee according to their size.

Long-Term Storage Fees

Items stored in our fulfillment centers for more than 60 days will generate a per unit monthly fee. This fee depends on product aging and size within its primary packaging.

You can avoid them by selling, discarding, or picking them up on time.

Pickup and Discarding Fees

We will charge for picking up items in stock from our Fulfillment Centers.

If you prefer not to pick up the units, you can request that Mercado Libre discard them from Full, prepare and designate them to non-profit organizations, recycling or destroying, depending on their condition.
