What is Remote Fulfillment with FBA?

Remote Fulfillment with FBA lets you sell to customers in Canada, Mexico and Brazil without sending inventory to those countries.

When you enroll in the program and create offers on Amazon.ca, Amazon.com.mx and Amazon.com.br, Fulfillment by Amazon uses your inventory in US fulfillment centers to deliver customer orders across the border.

Did you know?

Any manual adjustments to ASIN prices directly in your target store or stores (Mexico, Canada or Brazil), will break the connection between that ASIN and its US price. When manually adjusting prices, please ensure that you account for the exchange rate difference between US, Canada, Mexico and Brazil to avoid unwanted pricing errors.
Remove seller-fulfilled offers sharing the same SKUs as FBA offers
While enrolled in the Remote Fulfillment with FBA, seller-fulfilled offers can not use the same SKUs as FBA offers.

Seller-fulfilled inventory sharing SKUs with FBA offers will be set to zero. To maintain seller-fulfilled offers for the same items, assign the seller-fulfilled offer with a different SKU.
Assign a bank account to each target country
Under Account Info, assign a deposit and charge method in each selected marketplace. Use your existing US options or use Amazon Currency Converter for Sellers (ACCS) and deposit into your US bank account.

Manage your Remote Fulfillment listings

Review your ASIN status report

In Seller Central, download your "ASIN status report" under Inventory > Remote Fulfillment with FBA page. Understand which products were already added into the program and those that still need to become active. Enroll and unenroll eligible offers on a country level using this report.

The file will show which of your ASINs:
  • Are eligible to be sold through Remote Fulfillment with FBA
  • Require an action in the source marketplace (US) before you can add them to the program
  • Require an action in the target marketplaces (Mexico, Canada or Brazil) before you can add them to the program
  • Have been removed from the program

How to enroll and unenroll ASINs

Learn how to use the ASIN status report to enroll or unenroll eligible ASINs in Canada, Mexico and Brazil:
  • Download your ASIN status report. Open Menu > Inventory > Remote Fulfillment with FBA > Generate report and download the most recent version of your eligible ASIN status report.
  • Select the ASINs you want to add or remove. Determine the specific country and product you want to add or remove from the program, type in “Yes/No” on the “Enable/Disable” column and save the file.
  • Upload the ASIN status report file. On the same Remote Fulfillment with FBA page, click “Choose file” then select your ASIN status report file with the changes and upload it. Once uploaded, it will activate or deactivate the modified ASINs on your report in the selected target country.

Understand the cost of Remote Fulfillment with FBA

Just like any FBA product sold in the US, products sold internationally through the program will generate two types of fees: the Remote Fulfillment with FBA fee (instead of the US FBA fee), and the category referral fee for the marketplace where the sell occurred (instead of the US referral fee).
  • Remote Fulfillment fees are determined by product size and shipping weight and the costs of cross-border fulfillment to Mexico or Canada.
  • Referral fees are based on the store where the product was bought.
  • Customers, not sellers, pay import duties on items bought through Remote Fulfillment with FBA.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to the frequently asked questions about Remote Fulfillment with FBA.
What is the difference between FBA Export and Remote Fulfillment with FBA?
With FBA Export, your offers become available to customers worldwide for purchase on Amazon.com. Remote Fulfillment with FBA means your products will become available directly in the Canadian, Mexican and Brazilian websites. Therefore, your orders will appear in your Canada, Mexico or Brazil seller account, based on where the customer bought your product.
What are the eligibility criteria for Remote Fulfillment with FBA?
To be eligible for Remote Fulfillment with FBA, you must have a Professional Selling Account, use FBA in the US, and have a North America and Brazil Unified Account with FBA Export enabled.
What if I want to do both local FBA (Canada, Mexico or Brazil) and Remote Fulfillment with FBA at the same time?
If you already have inventory of an ASIN located in Mexico, Canada or Brazil the ASIN will not be eligible for Remote Fulfillment with FBA until you have sold through that local inventory. If you have existing offers for Canada, Mexico or Brazil but you don't have in-country inventory, those offers will begin to sell through Remote Fulfillment with FBA at their existing price at the time you enroll in the program.

If you are enrolled in Remote Fulfillment with FBA and decide you want to sell an ASIN locally instead, you can remove the ASIN from the program using the ASIN Status report. You can't fulfill ASINs both locally and through Remote Fulfillment with FBA at the same time. You can use the report to add those offers back to Remote Fulfillment with FBA after your local inventory has sold out.
What is the process for customer returns?
Customer returns will be sent back to the US and are subject to the FBA Customer returns policy.
What fees will I be charged? What fees will customers be charged?
Just like any FBA product sold in the US, products sold internationally through the program will generate two types of fees: the Remote Fulfillment with FBA fee (instead of the US FBA fee), and the category referral fee for the marketplace where the sell occurred (instead of the US referral fee). Customer will pay: Product price; Import duties and taxes on items they order and non-Prime Customers will pay shipping fees. For details about program fees, visit Remote Fulfillment with FBA fees.
How do products qualify for Remote Fulfillment with FBA after I enroll in the program? Can I check ASIN eligibility for Remote Fulfillment with FBA prior to enrolling in the program?
Not all items are eligible to sell through Remote Fulfillment with FBA. To be eligible, a product must:
  • Be enabled for FBA in the US, and target marketplace(s)
  • Meet all trade compliance and in-country regulations
The following product types are not eligible: restricted products, prohibited products, dangerous goods.

We continually monitor factors that can affect an ASIN’s eligibility so that products are safe for customers to import. When an ASIN becomes ineligible, it is most likely because of a change in trade compliance regulations or Amazon’s risk assessment. In some cases, an ASIN is eligible for cross-border fulfillment under a different fulfillment method, such as local FBA fulfillment or Seller-fulfilled, but is not eligible for Remote Fulfillment with FBA. That could be because the regulatory risk is high or we have not yet assessed the risk, or because there are transportation constraints. Reasons for an item being high risk can include a requirement for extra documentation at the border and greater regulatory scrutiny or product restrictions in the customer’s country.

You can't check ASIN eligibility prior to enrolling in the program. However, once enrollment is complete, you will have access to the ASIN Product Status report on the Remote Fulfillment with FBA page to review which ASINs are eligible and manually enable/disable selection. The selection updates will be reflected within 24 hours.
What if an ASIN is ineligible for Remote Fulfillment with FBA but I still want to sell it in Canada, Mexico or Brazil?
If your ASIN is not eligible for Remote Fulfillment with FBA but you still want to sell it in Canada, Mexico or Brazil, you can list it as a seller-fulfilled offer. For Mexico and Canada, you can also send it directly to the country for sale through FBA.
Can selling through Remote Fulfillment with FBA impact my US account health?
No, account health in Mexico, Canada or Brazil will not affect your source marketplace.
What possibilities do I have to create offers?
You can create offers linked to your US inventory in the following ways:
The ASIN Status report says my offer isn’t valid. Why?
This can happen for a number of reasons. It could be that Amazon pulled the offer in the US because of counterfeit concerns, or because the item was out of stock or not approved for sale. Review the More details column in your ASIN Status report for information on how to fix the problem. Check the US listing to understand what could be wrong.
