Questions and Answers About Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)
 
Q: What exactly is FBA?
A: From the Amazon Services website, FBA is described as, “You sell it, we ship it.  Amazon has created one of the most advanced fulfillment networks in the world, and your business can now benefit from our expertise.  With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) you store your products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and we directly pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.” So, FBA is basically a third-party logistics/fulfillment service.
Q: Is it only for merchants who sell on the Amazon.com?
A: While FBA offers tremendous benefits to merchants who sell on Amazon, it can be used for “Multi-Channel Fulfillment” as well.  This includes fulfilling orders from web stores, other marketplaces such as eBay and Buy.com, or a catalog call-center.
Q: As an online merchant, what are the major benefits to using FBA?
A: Some key benefits include:
·         Lower operational costs: Amazon handles all aspects of fulfillment (including picking, packing, and shipping)
·         Reduction in staffing needs: In addition to fulfillment, Amazon deals with all aspects of customer service
·         Instant credibility: Buyers trust that FBA inventory will be delivered on time.
·         Listing advantage: FBA listings stand out with special logos and text on the Amazon.com
·         Leverage Amazon Prime: Inventory in FBA can use the Prime on Your Site to provide your shoppers who are also Amazon Prime members free 2-day shipping.
·         International exposure: FBA sellers can leverage Amazon’s advanced global fulfillment network to easily reach international customers 
Q: How do I know if FBA is right for me, what is the cost structure and associated fees?
A: One way to determine if FBA is right for you is to model your products with Amazon’s FBA Calculator.  The calculator allows you to compare costs between fulfilling on your own versus FBA.  You can also check out the FBA Pricing for specifics on the associated costs.
Q: What does Amazon Prime have to do with FBA?
A: All FBA inventory is eligible for the benefits of the Amazon Prime program.  This program offers buyers incentives and benefits, including FREE Super Saver Shipping and Prime shipping eligibility, gift wrapping, and 24/7 Amazon customer service.  Inventory in the FBA program is eligible for all of these benefits.
Q: Does Amazon handle all service-related aspects of the orders, including shipping and returns?
A: Yes, Amazon handles all service-related details. You simply ship your inventory to Amazon, and they take care of the rest.
Q: Is FBA inventory slated for the EU market stored in EU fulfillment centers?
A: FBA is available in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Japan. To use these services, a seller must create a seller account under separate terms in these countries and manage the account separately.  Amazon’s FBA exporthelp page further explores this topic.
Q: FBA Europe seems complex. Where do you start?
A: Check out Amazon’s help page to get started.
Q: Should the FBA orders be entered into an inventory management system to keep track of Amazon inventory? Or do sellers need to create POs for FBA inventory?
A:  This depends on your system.  For instance, Monsoon Pro, Edge, and Connectautomatically manage your inventory, re-order points, and PO generation.  If you are not using an order management system, you may want to create POs for FBA inventory.
Q: Do sellers need to manually enter inventory data (images, descriptions, etc.) or is this done by Amazon?
A: If the inventory data is already available on Amazon, and has been assigned an ASIN or UPC, sellers don’t need to create new listings. If the item is not already available for sale on Amazon, you must provide this content.
Q: What recourse does a company have for mis-shipments/mistakes Amazon makes during fulfillment?
A: Amazon reimburses sellers the Replacement Value should inventory be damaged or lost. See Amazon’s Lost and Damaged Inventory Reimbursement Policy for details.
Q: Where do we find more information on Multi-channel Fulfillment?  I am not interested in selling on Amazon but am interested in the fulfillment piece.
A: FBA can fulfill orders on your behalf, regardless of the channel. Check out the FBA page for more information.
Q: How can I avoid other vendors from using our product data and images on Amazon.com?
A: Although not a question specific to FBA, it is important for those selling on Amazon.  Amazon’s goal is to provide the best customer experience possible and one aspect of this is presenting like products in a consistent and complete manner.  Usually the creator of a product receives “ASIN authority” for that product and all other merchants selling that product must use the existing product information.
