Fulfillment by Amazon: Why ship globally with FBA

How to deliver products globally?

Logistics is one of the central tiles in the mosaic of e-commerce exports. Considering the cost of shipping, hassle-free exports and customer satisfaction stand on the shoulders of a robust and effective logistics network. Delivering orders globally plays a crucial role in the success of exporters as it directly impacts customer experience. When exporting from India, it is important for exporters like you to plan your inventory and international shipping to ensure products reach customers on time without an impact on quality.

Selecting the right shipping option

As an Amazon global seller, you have two options to ship your products: You can do it yourself, maintaining your own inventory and shipping products to customers directly (merchant-fulfillment or MFN), or let Amazon handle packaging, and shipping products through Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). Each method has its own set of benefits and you can choose the one that is right for your business.

Shipping your own orders

How does it work?

Amazon Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN) or Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM) is when you list products in Amazon stores, but you manage all storage, shipping, and customer support independently.

Sellers on the professional selling plan who choose MFN can set their own shipping rates. They can customize shipping templates for specific regions domestically or internationally including handling and transit times. Professional sellers can also customize shipping charges, by order, per item and/or per weight.

Don't worry about making the wrong choice — you can change plans at any time. Also keep in mind that, in both cases, additional selling fees apply.

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)

You sell it, we ship it. With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), all you have to do is ship your products to Amazon’s international fulfillment centers.
