Amazon FBA

Amazon's FBA services can be the best solution for your business if you sell goods online. If you register as a seller with Amazon, you send your products to one of Amazon's warehouses, and they will handle the rest.

If you are sending your first order to Amazon, and you are not aware of their packing requirements, the information below may be useful to you. Ensuring proper packaging will not only protect your goods in transit but will also avoid any potential delays. Please be advised that Amazon will often reject consignments which are not packed according to their requirements.
