Amazon FBA is a fairly simply idea – you ship your products to an Amazon warehouse and they store, pick, pack and ship them on your behalf. However there are many services built around Amazon FBA so today we take a look at some of the most popular Amazon FBA Services that you might not be aware of:
Amazon FBA Services – International Selling
European Fulfilment Network
You ship your products to a domestic fulfilment centre, simplifying inventory management and gaining Prime eligibility for fast delivery. You pay only local fulfilment fees on domestic orders and products can be delivered to Amazon’s other European marketplaces with cross-border fees. Learn more.
You choose which countries you want to ship to and store your stock in and only pay local fulfilment fees for sales in the marketplaces where you store products. You can still sell to customers even in marketplaces where you choose not to store products and deliver with cross-border fulfilment services. Learn more.
Send your products to an Amazon fulfilment centre in your home marketplace and let Pan-European FBA distribute it throughout Europe, based on anticipated demand. This programme makes it easier for you to grow your business in your home marketplace and sell across Europe by placing your inventory closer to customers, and by fulfilling and delivering orders at lower costs and in less time. More products are now eligible for Pan-European FBA, and you can enable the automatic addition of products to the programme. Learn more.
