What is FBA?
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a storage and shipping service that Amazon offers to help business owners sell their products. Businesses ship their products into Amazon’s fulfillment centers, which are specifically designed for FBA services. Amazon opens its platform to third-party sellers, integrates their inventory into Amazon’s global logistics network, and provides them with picking, packing and terminal delivery services, for which Amazon charges a fee.
The characteristics of FBA
Through Amazon Logistics (FBA), Amazon handles shipping and returns in exchange for fulfillment fees. To use the FBA service, first set up an Amazon Seller account. Next, add FBA to your product list. Then ship your product to Amazon for storage and fulfillment and start selling it online on Amazon Store.
When you use Amazon Fulfillment, your products on Amazon will carry the Prime logo, and Prime members are more likely to click on the buy box for your products if they can get free two-day shipping. It’s not uncommon for Amazon sellers to see an increase in orders for their products once they start using FBA.
Fulfillment by Amazon lets people who sell on Amazon Marketplace benefit from the company’s picking and packing business. Amazon has a vast network of fulfillment centers in the United States. Amazon Fulfillment will deliver your products to your customers quickly and efficiently. In addition, you don’t have to worry about order fulfillment or return processes. Amazon fulfillment solves this problem for you. Amazon FBA can save you time.
The specific advantages of FBA are as follows:
