Amazon FBA – what is it?
FBA (Fulfilled by Amazon) – e-commerce directly from Amazon warehouses.
Amazon FBA is a unique feature of the Amazon e-commerce experience that allows businesses to store goods directly in Amazon’s fulfilment centres and let Amazon take care of order fulfilment for them. Businesses can entrust Amazon to handle all the logistics involved in taking goods from the warehouse to the customer.
Advantages of FBA:
delivery of products to customers within 1 working day;
the products become part of the Amazon Prime loyalty programme;
higher positioning of your products in Amazon searches;
generally lower logistics costs, which translates into business competitiveness;
higher customer trust, better traffic conversion, and greater advertising effectiveness.
FBA provides many opportunities but may also bring up many significant challenges. Before signing up for Amazon FBA, you should ask yourself:
Are your products eligible for FBA?
Have you decided which countries you will warehouse in? Do you know which countries you will be able to ship to from there?
Have you checked the tax requirements for warehousing products in the chosen countries?
Have you correctly estimated the future costs of warehousing and order fulfilment?
Have you assessed the requirements for preparing the products for FBA?
