What is Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and why should I use it?

Created: - Updated:

Millions of sellers trust Amazon.com to do their order fulfillment through Amazon’s third-party logistics service called Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA).

With Fulfillment by Amazon, instead of shipping orders to customers yourself, you can ship your new and used products to Amazon, and Amazon will handle the order fulfillment for you.

You store your products in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and as orders are placed Amazon directly picks, packs and ships these products. They even manage post-order customer service and manage customer returns on your behalf.

This can save you a significant amount of time every day, and can also save you quite a bit of money in shipping fees, depending on the size and weight of your products — many sellers save more than 50% on their shipping costs.

Fulfillment by Amazon can also fulfill orders from other sales channels from your inventory stored at an Amazon fulfillment center. If you don’t already do so, you can sell the items you have sent to Amazon on other marketplaces or in your online store and let Amazon fulfill those orders for you. And with the help of Sellbrite, that process is completely automated.
