If you have a product you are selling that you would like to be able to ship to people around the country who would like to order it, an easy way to get your product set up to be shipped is through Fulfillment by Amazon, or FBA. People can order your product from its Amazon listing online, and Amazon will process and ship orders for you.
Why Use Fulfillment by Amazon?
Selling your product with Fulfillment by Amazon is much easier than shipping it yourself, for a number of good reasons. Amazon will already have the product in one of their fulfillment centers, which means you don’t have to go to the post office and wait in line to mail packages to people every time someone orders from you. Amazon processes millions of orders each day, so processing and shipping is very easy for them.
You don’t have to worry about people coming to you with product problems if you ship your product with Amazon, because Amazon handles all customer service and will take responsibility for shipping issues. They will accept returns and send out a new product if requested.
People should be happy with their shipping experience, because they will get free shipping on orders over $35.00. Amazon Prime members get free two-day shipping. You can rest assured that your customers are in the best hands when their orders are fulfilled through Amazon, who will make sure that they receive their product in a timely manner and in good condition.
Best of all, using Fulfillment by Amazon will increase your sales, because Amazon is so easy to use and it is so easy for customers to share product listings.
How to Get Started
Getting started with Fulfillment by Amazon is easy, since you can manage your inventory online. First you send your product to Amazon, and then you upload your listings to Seller Central. Your products are listed in your Amazon account, and you can convert them to an FBA listing.
