Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) is a service provided by Amazon that provides storage, packaging, and shipping assistance to sellers. This takes the burden off of sellers and grants them more flexibility in their selling practices. The program allows sellers to ship their merchandise to an Amazon fulfillment center, where items are stored in warehouses until they are sold. When an order is placed, Amazon employees physically prepare, package, and ship the product(s).
What this means is that you send your product to Amazon, and they do all the legworks. They deal with customers, ship your products from Amazon fulfillment centers, and process refunds.
All you need to do is make sure you send in inventory before you run out of stock!
How Amazon FBA Works
Amazon handles all the hard work for you within FBA, so the way it works is pretty simple.
1. Send your products to Amazon.
Amazon has about 100 warehouses across the U.S., some of which are over a million square feet.
You tell them what products you’re sending, and they tell you which warehouses to ship your products to.
2. Amazon sorts and stores your products.
Once Amazon receives your products, they’ll sort and add them to their inventory.
Your products are then stored safely in their warehouses.
On the off chance that anything gets damaged in the warehouse, Amazon will reimburse you.
3. A customer buys your product.
Amazon takes care of the entire transaction for you.
They accept payment and update your inventory automatically.
4. Amazon ships your product.
One of Amazon’s warehouse workers (or robots) grabs your product from storage, packs it into a box, and ships it to the customer.
5. Amazon handles customer service – well, a lot of it.
Once the customer receives your product, Amazon follows up to make sure they’re satisfied with the shipment.
They also handle any returns or questions from the customer.
As for any feedback you receive on your product listing, it’s up to you to respond and take action.
6. You get paid.
Every two weeks, Amazon totals up all your sales, deducts your seller fees, and deposits your profits directly into your bank account.
That’s it! Sound pretty easy? There are a few things you need to do to make sure you’re successful.
