A question that is on the lips of many people is “What is Amazon FBA”? To help me explain what Amazon FBA is, let’s look at a small story of how Amazon FBA can help you take your online sales business to the next level.
Amazon FBA or to give it, is a full name. Fulfillment By Amazon is a program created by Amazon that allows you to use Amazon to store and then send your articles (and also always to sell your articles on the Amazon site). Amazon FBA is very simple, but at the same time it is very powerful and can take your business to the next level at a very low cost.
Imagine the scene in which you are busy doing the supply of your product and has collected some books, CD DVDs, household items and beauty some new toys (Yes, the items sold through Amazon FBA have to be new or collectible ). Now, normally, in the back of his mind, he is thinking that he would like to be able to buy more shares, but there is no more space at home. This is where the Amazon FBA comes into play. And you can try the water using Amazon’s basic sale account or it can be a Pro-Merchant, it does not matter.
You arrive home and you scan or list the items as usual in your Amazon account and a few clicks later, you print some barcodes that you must put on the original barcode in the item (If the items will need to have a code of bars) or listed on the Amazon site). A couple of more clicks and print a packing list that goes in the box or boxes. Next, book a pick-up from a carrier and this depends on where you live and how you pay, each country is different.
Then, complete the order and wait for the order to be removed, and in a matter of days your item will be in the Amazon store that was sold to you and you can sit down and deposit the money. Amazon FBA deals with payments, sending and emails from customers, you just need to get more shares and deposit the money.
Yes, there are some additional costs that Amazon charges, but these are low, and the savings you make in shipping costs are fantastic. Remember that you are using the purchasing power of Amazon and there are no more queues at post offices and you no longer have to buy bubble wrappers and boxes. And you can take this to the next level by Amazon sourcing too.
Another thing that people do not realize is that they can use Amazon FBA to send to eBay and other buyers. Yes, Amazon stores the items and sends them for you. And for a very low cost and, in most cases, much cheaper than what you can do. All the price information can be found on the Amazon site of your country. Just look for Amazon FBA.
