The airline intends to streamline the process by eliminating the need to take cabin bags off passengers at the departure gate and check them into the hold.
However, consumers will be charged for a 10kg carry-on hand luggage.
Under the policy, passengers who pay €6 for priority boarding can continue to bring two bags on board for free.
Ryanair's Chief Marketing Officer Kenny Jacobs said: "Since 1 September, Ryanair customers have already saved over half a million euro as they switch from our €25 x 20kg checked bag to our new lower cost €8 x 10kg checked bag option, which is now available for all flights from 1st November".
It said the measure is necessary to reduce delays.
Previously, passengers could take a personal bag as well as a larger cabin bag.
Under the new policy, non-priority boarding passengers are still allowed to bring a "personal bag" into the cabin free of charge, but there will be a fee of €8 ($9) to check in a small suitcase weighing up to 10 kilograms (22 pounds). A total of 95 people can pay priority on any given flight, the airline said.
Also, the bag that non-priority customers are carrying onboard must fit into the "sizer" designated by the airline. This is annoying, forcing many to opt for priority boarding for each flight if you want to access your bag mid-air.
