Amazon Fulfilment

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

The two types of Amazon fulfilment

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.

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 to Vdepot
