product storage and stocking needs
As an online seller, one of your major problems would be storage, managing, and dispatch of your products – day after day-everyday. What if we told you that there’s an excellent logistics solution that can take care of it fully for you?
It’s true! Amazon offers to its sellers one of the world’s most advanced networks that not just helps online businesses with storage (storehousing), packing, shipping, and delivery of their products but also manages returns and client service. It’s called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and was launched in India primarily to help small and medium-sized businesses that didn’t have the budget to invest in warehouses, equipment, and manpower. Today, sellers and business of all kinds and sizes from across India benefit from great service and peace of mind.
In FBA, your products are stored at a secure Amazon-managed storehouse, and every time an order is placed, Amazon picks, ships and delivers your products. These items also get the Fulfilled by Amazon badge on the product page, hence serving from increased client trust. In the case of returns, it’s managed fully by Amazon as well – the product is collected, transferred back to the warehouse, and re-stocked so that someone differently can buy it. You don’t have to worry about return pick up or delivering the new product in case of a replacement request. It’s a smooth process that even allows you to take a break or go on a holiday without having to shut shop or pause your online sales even for a minute.
So how do you get started on FBA?
Once you register with Amazon and log on to the Seller Central platform, you can click on settings (top right corner) and elect‘ Fulfillment by Amazon to add FBA to your account. You can get detailed assistance for FBA from our Amazon Seller University training vids. Fulfillment by Amazon works on a pay-as-you-go model, which gives you the elasticity of scaling your business as required and you’re only charged for what you use. There are no hidden costs, no additional subscription fees, no minimum units, and no start-up fees.
So go ahead and try FBA for your business, it could veritably well help you get to the next level.
