Comprehensive Amazon FBA Consulting Services

With FBA, your inventory is stored at an Amazon Fulfilment Centre. You prep and ship your products to the fulfilment centre(s) rather than sending them directly to the customer. When customers order your products, Amazon then picks, packs and ships them, as well as provides customer support on the products.

The three Amazon shipping options are:

Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA)
Sellers ship inventory to Amazon. Amazon packs and ships the order to the customer and handles customer service. FBA ensures two-day delivery and allows you to claim a Prime badge on your listing.

Fulfilment by Merchant (FBM)
Sellers are responsible for storing inventory, picking and shipping merchandise themselves or with the assistance of a 3PL (third-party logistics partner).

Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP)
This hybrid option allows sellers to fulfill their own orders, but they are awarded with the Prime badge. The catch? The seller covers the cost of the two-day shipping and/or restricts delivery to locations that UPS or FedEx ground can reach within two days. Sellers must qualify for the program and adhere to its extremely strict shipping deadlines.

Although mastering FBA is time-consuming and sometimes challenging, it is one of the biggest competitive advantages you have over other sellers.

Competitive Shipping and Prime Eligibility

Your FBA products are eligible for free two-day shipping with Amazon Prime, as well as free shipping on eligible orders for all Amazon.com customers.

Focus on Growth

Amazon’s dashboard provides 24/7 access so you see what is selling and what is sitting, as well as what inventory you should restock. In this way, FBA helps you to properly manage inventory levels while leaving all the shipping details to Amazon. Spending less time on inventory and shipping tasks allows you to focus more attention on growing your business.

Amazon Equity

FBA products are listed with the Prime logo, so customers know that Amazon handles packing, delivery, customer service and returns, and they can be confident that they will receive their order quickly.

Cost Effective

With FBA, you pay as you go. Amazon charges sellers only for the storage space they use and the orders Amazon fulfills on their behalf. The cost of shipping is included in a seller’s FBA fees, with no extra charge for the above-mentioned shipping benefits.
