What is Amazon FBA ?
FBA stands for Fullfillment by Amazon, a solution which allows you, as an online seller, to utilize Amazon’s numerous huge warehouses to store and ship the products you sell through the Amazon website.
How Amazon FBA works is a very simple, yet powerful process which can help your online business grow without the need for you to invest thousands of pounds in storage facilities and staff.
To give you an idea of how Amazon FBA can help you, consider this scenario. You’ve conducted your research, sourced your products and have two or three hot items, all selling well on Amazon. Your business is gathering momentum and moving forward.
As an entrepreneurial, motivated and enthusiastic seller, at this point, you are likely to begin thinking about purchasing more stock, but the issue is that you simply lack the room to store it and worry about the extra time it will take you to dispatch more orders.
Does this mean your dreams of expanding your business are dashed? No, not at all. This is where Amazon FBA can help you.
So streamlined is the Amazon Fulfillment service that when customers purchase from Amazon, they will usually be totally unaware that they are purchasing from a third-party seller using Amazon FBA!
They will see almost no difference between purchasing from Amazon directly and from a seller using Amazon FBA. They will see the same delivery options, the same return and refund policy and the same level of service.
So, for an Amazon seller, as you might imagine, this solution can be very profitable, and can certainly take a lot of time-consuming tasks away. It is not a magic bullet however and just like any business strategy, it will take effort to get started.
What you need to do
- Choose your products: Amazon deals with the back end so to speak, but you’ll still need to research and source what to sell.
- Ensure your inventory is always up to date: Amazon lets you know when your stock levels are low, but you must make sure you replenish stocks when necessary.
- Create your product listings and market your products effectively: Amazon is huge but you’ll still need to write effective product listings and titles and market your products so that people can actually find them.
