Did you know?

You can lower shipping and storage costs with AWD

When you use AGL or the Amazon Partnered Carrier Program (PCP) to send to AWD, you’ll save 25% on AWD storage and 15% on processing and transportation. Learn more

When you leave AWD’s auto-replenishment feature defaulted, you’ll get a waiver for FBA storage-utilization surcharges, low-inventory-level costs, and storage-overage costs. FBA inbound placement costs are also waived for all AWD shipments.

When you use AWD non-holiday storage for standard-size units, you save 38% compared to FBA—and you save 80% during the holiday season.*

Frequently Asked Questions

How does automated replenishment work?
Automated replenishment relies on a proprietary data-science model that monitors the inventory levels in Prime-ready fulfillment centers and triggers replenishments in order to maintain adequate inventory levels so that your products stay in stock. If you leave auto-replenishment enabled, your products are considered in stock and buyable when they're received by AWD, and we manage your replenishments so you don't have to worry about Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) capacity limits.
