Prior to sending goods to Amazon, you will first of all need to have a shipping plan. This means you need to have a list of the specific goods approved by the Amazon fulfillment centers so they can successfully process your order.
Sending goods to Amazon is not difficult at all and you will first of all need to log into your Amazon account to proceed. Once you’re logged in, navigate to the Tools menu. It’s here that you can customize your shipping method for the goods you want to send to Amazon’s warehouses, the products you want to ship, the quantity, etc. You can also check whether you want Amazon to prepare and label your goods. If not, then you can choose to label the goods yourself.
Preparing the products for shipping is also something you can do from your Amazon account. Go to the shipment creation tools and use them to create product labels and printable shipping labels. Once you managed creating your shipping plan, you can proceed to preparing and packing your goods so they can be safely delivered to the fulfillment center.
One thing you need to bear in mind is that if required, then it’s very much possible to split a shipping plan into as many shipments as you like that will then be delivered to various fulfillment centers. If you do so, then you’ll basically deliver the products closer to where your main customer base is. The faster your clients receive their order, the happier they’ll be.
If you think that shipping product to Amazon is rather difficult, then you can do this through a middle man. You should consider using a middle man if:
- This is the first time you ship from a supplier. The advantage here is that you will have a US company prepare and label your goods. You can also inspect the goods yourself.
- You can avoid making mistakes that may result in delays or having your goods rejected and sent back to China.
- Using a middle man can result in saving a lot of money since the shipment is consolidated.
- You need to receive your goods as soon as possible.
- Shipping your product from China to FBA takes a long time.
If this is the first time you try Amazon FBA, then you may want to have the first few shipments shipped directly to your home address. At some point, you will have to handle the products personally.
