Amazon Fulfilment

Fulfilment for your Amazon sales channel – sell through Amazon while retaining control of your products.

Marketplace Optimisation Support

Whether Amazon is your only sales channel or part of a multi-channel sales strategy, Vdepot’s storage and fulfilment services can enhance your Amazon operations.

A decision that every Amazon seller has to make is how they’re going to fulfil their orders. Which Amazon fulfilment option is right for you depends on the type and size of your products, your sales channel mix, order volumes and overall business objectives.

Types of Amazon Fulfilment

Fulfilment - warehousing and storage service

With Fulfilled by Merchant (FBM), you list your products on Amazon and receive notification when an order has been placed. You – or your chosen fulfilment partner – are responsible for the storage, packing and shipping of all orders.

Order Shipping

With Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA), you ship your products to an Amazon warehouse and they manage the storage, fulfilment and returns process for your items. Your products & packaging must meet Amazon’s requirements before they will be accepted into their fulfilment centres.

Support with FBM

FBM is an ideal option when Amazon makes up a minority share of your online sales, you want to retain control of your inventory, or the economics of storing stock at an Amazon warehouse don’t make sense for your products.

By choosing FBM (Fulfilled by Merchant) and picking Vdepot as your fulfilment partner you still get the benefits of outsourcing your fulfilment, but this way you can retain more visibility and control of your products:

Inventory Management and fulfilment

Inventory Management Services

We can also carry out inventory management processes while your stock is in our warehouse, such as date rotation and batch control. This makes Vdepot an ideal alternative for food, beverage and health products.

Support with FBA

If you’ve already decided that you would like to use FBA, you may still want to consider working with another fulfilment house like Vdepot. By working with a professional fulfilment partner, you get to enjoy the benefits of being Prime-eligible while ensuring cost-effective storage and management of your inventory. 

Amazon FBA requirements

Preparing your products for Amazon

Amazon has a long list of requirements for how products should be packaged and labelled to be received into their warehouses. Products that don’t meet these requirements could trigger non-compliance fees, or your products being returned to you at your expense.

Vdepot can do this preparatory work for you, ensuring items are correctly packaged, compliant labelling to your products, and arranging the shipments with Amazon

STORAGE

You may want to consider storing excess inventory with Vdepot to avoid Amazon’s higher storage charges and long-term storage penalties. This could work out as more cost-effective for you if:
