This article mainly explains how to ship products from China to Amazon FBA warehouse. If you have any questions, please leave a message below or send us an email.
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) is a service provided by Amazon that provides sellers with warehousing, packaging, and transportation assistance.
This reduces the burden on sellers and gives them more flexibility in their sales practices. The program allows sellers to ship their products to Amazon fulfillment centers, where the products are stored in warehouses until they are sold.
After the order is placed, Amazon employees personally prepare, package, and ship the products.
Usually there are 3 ways to ship goods from China to Amazon FBA
This is the easiest and fastest method.
The biggest (and possibly the most likely to harm your business) pitfall of shipping directly from Chinese suppliers to FBA warehouses is that you cannot perform proper quality control/inspection of your products.
Although many sellers seek the help of a third-party inspection company, when your product does not have a second set of inspections, an alarming number of errors will still occur.
This is the main reason why many buyers choose to ship to themselves first, and then ship to Amazon’s warehouse. The quality of products sold on Amazon is very important. Once a product has a bad review, it will affect the entire sales situation. It may even cause this listing to be invalidated.
These service companies can help you handle import customs clearance, deliver goods from your suppliers to Amazon warehouses, conduct product inspections, package and label your goods in accordance with Amazon’s specific requirements.
You only need to pay, and then you can solve all the troubles you have to transport to the Amazon warehouse. You can find similar companies through Google or social media.
Summary: Each method has advantages and disadvantages. Which method to choose depends on your actual situation.
