What is Fulfillment by Amazon?

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is an all-in-one solution to sell your products to Amazon customers. When you use FBA, all you need to do is send your products to Amazon Fulfillment Centers. The rest is on us. We store your products, and when a customer places an order, we take care of packing, shipping, and delivering the product to the customer’s doorstep. The FBA also gives your products the Prime Badge and offers same-day or next-day delivery for eligible customers. We also handle returns and customer support queries for you.

Customers Prefer Prime Products

Fulfillment by Amazon makes your offers more visible and competitive, giving you access to crores of our loyal Prime customers. Fulfillment by Amazon also increases your chance for winning the Buy Box, which appears with the “Add to Cart” option when customers click on a product they wish to buy.
