Sell through Amazon while retaining control of your products. 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.
Types of Amazon Fulfilment
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.
With Fulfilled by Merchant (FBM), you list your products on Amazon and receive a notification when an order has been placed. You - or your chosen fulfilment partner - are responsible for the storage, packing and shipping of all orders.
With Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA), you ship your products to an Amazon warehouse and they manage the storage & fulfilment. Your products must meet Amazon’s requirements before they will be accepted into their fulfilment centres.
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:
Amazon 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.
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.
Preparing your products for FBA
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, adding compliant labelling to your products, and arranging the shipments with Amazon.
