How to deliver products internationally with Amazon?

Delivering global orders plays a crucial role for sellers to be successful and grow your business. Indian sellers can fulfill their global orders with ease by themselves or use Amazon's international shipping methods:

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. Amazon stores, packs and delivers products on your behalf. Amazon recommends FBA to sellers as this helps them focus on their business expansion while Amazon takes care of international shipping, delivery, returns and customer service. In 2019, the FBA global solution had:

Storage space

250 Million Sq. Feet

Units shipped

29 Million+

My products are available in the US, Canadian, and Mexican marketplaces. Before I knew it, I had 200 items on FBA, and 400+ designs overall.

Why choose FBA global solution?

With the Amazon India international shipping method, all products listed through FBA are eligible for Prime benefits i.e. the product will be delivered within two days after the customer places the order. All you've got to do is ship your products to Amazon’s international FBA (warehouses). Once a customer places the order, Amazon packs and ships it to the customer. In case a customer has any queries, Amazon’s customer care handles feedback/concerns on your behalf. If a customer returns the product, Amazon collects the product and brings it back to the fulfillment center. The benefits of opting for FBA global solution are:
