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.

Fulfilment - warehousing and storage service

FBM

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.

Order Shipping

FBA

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.

Outsourcing 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 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 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

Storage
