I do know what you’re considering, “Why do I have to convert my gadgets to FBA gadgets if I simply chosen them to be fulfilled by Amazon?”. This simply provides you the choice to make use of Amazon FBA. You don’t have to make use of FBA for each merchandise you promote. There are some gadgets that may’t be shipped by means of Amazon FBA both. Due to this fact, you want to go into your account and manually choose which gadgets you wish to fulfill by means of Amazon FBA.
To do that, go to the “Stock” tab in your Vendor Central homepage and click on “Handle Stock”. From right here you’ll wish to choose the “Actions” drop down for every produce and choose “Change to Fulfilled by Amazon”.
Please word: As soon as transformed, your listings shall be quickly faraway from Amazon.com till the stock has been acquired at Amazon’s success middle. So, you could end all the course of to checklist and promote your gadgets by means of Amazon FBA.
Choose “Change to Fulfilled by Amazon” the third choice from the highest.
As soon as you alter your stock to Fulfilled by Amazon, you’ll be requested about two preferences:
- FBA Label Service
- Stickerless, Commingled Stock
In case you’re promoting new gadgets, you need to use stickerless, commingled stock. Which means Amazon listing removals will commingle your stock with different sellers’ matching items. If somebody orders from you, Amazon may ship an identical unit that’s truly from a unique vendor, however in warehouse nearer to the shopper. This enables Amazon to ship gadgets sooner for higher customer support.
(In case you’re selecting commingled stock, please concentrate on the dangers. If one other vendor sells counterfeit merchandise, they may very well be shipped in lieu of your genuine merchandise earlier than Amazon notices.)
In my case, I accepted this as a result of I used to be not promoting something new.
Of the 2, FBA Label Service was far more essential to me. With their Label Service, Amazon places a label (assume white product sticker) in your gadgets for you, as an alternative of you doing it your self.
I accepted the label service as a result of I didn’t wish to print out my very own stickers. It was solely 20 cents per merchandise to have Amazon label my gadgets. That being mentioned, if you wish to preserve your margins excessive, chances are you’ll contemplate printing your individual stickers and labeling your merchandise.
As soon as you choose your choices, you’ll be prompted to both “Convert Solely” or “Convert & Ship Stock”. In case you’re solely promoting one merchandise, go forward and choose “Convert & Ship Stock”. If not, choose “Convert Solely” so we will add extra gadgets earlier than we arrange delivery.
Your merchandise ought to now seem in your “Amazon-Fulfilled Stock” underneath “Handle FBA Stock” after viewing most important “Stock” tab in Vendor Central.
