Getting the first order on Amazon can be very exciting for a new seller! That means your business is getting started. But have you figured out your delivery strategy? At Amazon, you get multiple delivery options and you should know which one is the right fit for you. Here are the order delivery options
a. Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA)
Sounds like too much work?
Don’t worry. Amazon has got all these covered for you. Join FBA at Fulfillment by Amazon
. It literally means getting your orders fulfilled by Amazon. All you’ve got to do is send your products to the nearest Fulfillment Center or schedule a pickup, and Amazon takes on from there. Your product will be packed, shipped, and delivered by Amazon, assuring high-quality service to your customers.
And what do you have to do? Forget about the operational hassles and focus on growing your business.
b. Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN)
If you’ve got resources and manpower to manage your operations, then you can opt for Self Ship or MFN. MFN is just the opposite of FBA, where you manage the business operations entirely by yourself. You can use your storage space for the inventory and save service fee.
c. Easy Ship
Want to enjoy the benefits of both FBA and MFN?
Go for Easy Ship.
As the name suggests, the program makes shipment easy for you. Under Easy Ship, you manage the packaging of your products
and get it ready to be shipped, while Amazon takes care of its delivery. Sellers benefit from low shipping rates, shipment pickup, fast delivery, and automated shipment tracking.
d. Seller Flex
Seller Flex is a fulfillment program for those who have got their own warehouse. Under this, you can keep your inventory in your warehouse while enjoying the benefits of FBA. It is an invite-only program, and you need to fulfill certain criteria to be eligible for Seller Flex, like maintaining minimum monthly sales, seller rating, and units sold monthly.
