Whether you are an experienced seller or you are new to Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA), the Olenich Group LTD team is here to take care of every aspect of your shipment, from anywhere in the world, direct to the relevant Amazon Fulfillment Center.
1. What is Amazon FBA?
Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) is Amazon’s special program for marketplace sellers. Technically, this means that you deliver your goods to the Amazon warehouse, and Amazon itself organizes the further dispatch of the goods to the buyer (after purchasing on the Amazon web site). You pay the storage costs and special fees; in addition, you may order labelling and repackaging services.
FBM (Fulfillment by Merchant) service, on the contrary, provides the shipment of goods from the seller's warehouse, so the seller ensures the processing and delivery of the goods to the buyer independently.
2. How is the delivery of cargo and goods carried out to Amazon FBA warehouses?
Delivery to the United States (for its further delivery to the Amazon warehouse in the United States) can be carried out by air or by water transport. Depending on the goods, their quantity, weight and the required delivery time, you can choose a convenient and cost-effective option for you.
Remember that before dispatching goods to the United States, you must definitely check the restrictions on the import of goods into the United States and prepare the necessary accompanying documents/permits, etc. for the import of goods.
3. Are there any peculiarities of delivery of cargo or goods to Amazon FBA?
One of the peculiarities of delivering goods to an Amazon warehouse is that Amazon itself nominates a warehouse to which you will need to deliver your goods, i.e. you cannot choose the warehouse to which you would like to send the goods yourself. In addition, the packaging and labelling of the goods must meet the requirements of Amazon.
4. From which countries can I deliver cargo or goods to Amazon FBA?
Delivery of goods to the USA to an Amazon warehouse can be carried out from any country from which delivery by air and/or water transport to the USA is carried out.
Please note that first you must check US import restrictions regarding the product you have chosen and the country of origin of this product.
