Getting shoppers their stuff

When an Amazon customer buys your product, either we can ship the order for you with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) or you can ship it yourself. Many Amazon sellers use a mix of Amazon fulfillment and shipping their own orders.

Aim for fast, free shipping with Prime

Many Amazon customers look for products with the Prime badge because it represents fast, free shipping. Using FBA to ship your products is the easiest way to get the Prime badge for most offers.

How Fulfillment by Amazon works

When you sign up to sell on Amazon, you’re automatically enrolled in FBA for free. If you decide to go that route, you’ll send inventory to Amazon fulfillment centers, and we’ll handle shipping, customer service, refunds, and returns for those products. You can track your FBA inventory in Seller Central.

Benefits of Fulfillment by Amazon

  • Eliminate your fulfillment headaches and get help scaling your business.
  • Outsource storage, customer service, and returns.
  • Offer free one- or two-day shipping to Prime members.

  • Improve your chance of winning the featured offer spot on detail pages.
There’s no minimum number of units and no obligation to use FBA for all your products. You have the freedom to customize your strategy to meet your ecommerce business’ needs.

Tour a fulfillment center

Amazon has 175 fulfillment centers around the world ready to store and ship your products with FBA.

When to handle orders yourself

Fulfillment by seller might be right if your products aren’t ideal for FBA—for instance, hazardous goods that don’t meet fulfillment center requirements or seasonal products that would incur excessive storage fees. Also, you may not need FBA if you already have a logistics network in place.

In cases like these, fulfillment by seller allows you to:
  • Keep your inventory on hand
  • Use your own packaging or labels
  • Stay profitable on products with tighter margins
  • Offer products that are eligible for sale on Amazon, but ineligible for FBA

Amazon's drop shipping policy

Drop-shipping is when you enlist a third-party to fulfill orders on your behalf. Amazon has very specific policies around this practice. If it’s a method you intend to use, make sure to follow these requirements to avoid losing your selling privileges.
