Simple start with Amazon FBA! | 2021
Amazon has created something called Fulfillment By Amazon which works a lot like eBay, but in my opinion, much better.
For a while, eBay was the only place to sell things online. eBay is great, but it requires a lot of work on your part: sourcing, listing, shipping, customer support, etc.
If you are planning to sell online, you should highly consider the Fulfillment Program from Amazon called FBA. FBA stands for “Fulfillment By Amazon” which makes it a fulfillment company. Al-Wafa company provides storage and shipping services for its customers’ products. The FBA service is unique because Amazon is also a marketplace for those items, so they have an active interest in seeing which items are being sold. What makes FBA even more exceptional is that its items are also eligible for Amazon Prime Shipping promotions including Free Super Saver Shipping and Amazon Prime.
It is important to understand how FBA works and how other companies use the FBA service.
Buyers use Amazon Prime to get free shipping. They easily spend more on things like spices, coffee, tea, socks, toilet paper, towels, detergent, etc. They spend a lot more because they completely trust Amazon. This is beneficial for sellers because it means that you will earn more and sell more.
Amazon is a very good online commerce company that has set very high standards for its customers, sellers, and owners. Customer service is paramount to them and we take advantage of that with Fulfillment by Amazon. You as a product seller no longer have to deal with after sales customer service. You simply keep sending more products to Amazon and they will take care of the rest.
This article will only cover setting up your Amazon account for FBA. We’ll go further into sending your products to Amazon, storing and shipping your products on Amazon, and managing your FBA inventory in upcoming articles.
1. Open an Amazon account
If you’ve never bought or sold on Amazon and don’t have an account, simply go to the Amazon website and click the Sell on Amazon link at the bottom of any page.
2. Set up your Amazon account
Once you have an Amazon selling account, contact the Amazon customer service department to set up your account for FBA. Having an actual FBA representative on your account will help you resolve any issues in the future. The representative will guide you through your first shipment.
So, if you’ve made it this far, you’ve done your initial due diligence and you’ve got an FBA account.
