Your responsibilities under Amazon FBA
Amazon FBA will do it all for you. Therefore, the following three primary obligations remain on your shoulders:
1. Selection of products for sale
You can sell almost anything. However, if you want to avoid long-term storage charges, select products that sell quickly.
2. Stock control
While Amazon FBA stores your products, it no longer checks if you have enough in stock. Therefore, you must have your stock level under your control.
3. Marketing and advertising
If you sell high-value branded products, you probably don't need to invest that much in marketing. But if you offer your products, you need to promote yourself to be found by buyers.
Army of loyal customers and other sales benefits through Amazon FBA
Amazon FBA is one of the best ways to make a difference. One of the main reasons is that shoppers love Amazon. This is due to the unique services that you, as a retailer, can easily access:
1. Transport and logistics effortlessly
If you've ever sold through Amazon FBM, you know it's quite time-consuming. The higher sales volume on Amazon goes hand in hand with higher "time costs" for logistics, possibly even financial ones if you hire someone.
Amazon FBA allows you to process the entire logistics process externally, without the need for any experience and spending time on the packaging, shipping, and complaints.
2. Profitable transport rates
Amazon has so many sales that it can afford to negotiate prices with carriers. That is why Amazon transfers transport discounts to shipping costs to sellers. Customers also benefit because some will also receive free shipping, which is another competitive advantage for you as a retailer.
3. Complaints without work
Nobody likes claims and bureaucracy associated with them. As part of the Amazon FBA program, claims as a seller may not bother you. Avoid dealing with agitated customers or extra administration.
Sure, Amazon FBA charges a fee for handling complaints. But it is worth the amount of work that will make it easier for you.
4. Excellent customer service
Amazon is preceded by a reputation for superior customer service: 24/7 support on the phone, chat, and email. It makes life easier not only for customers but also for sellers who can get some rest.
5. Almost unlimited storage space
With Amazon FBA, you don't have to worry about how much space you need for your products. You do not pay for a warehouse, you do not need to concern yourself about its size...
Amazon FBA does not limit you. You can send one product or a thousand. Successful, high-volume sellers get unlimited storage.
6. Fast delivery
Amazon has logistics centers around the world: No matter where your customers are, you can quickly meet their demand within a few days.
Amazon FBA makes it possible for anyone in the world to do business with first-class service and excellent brand reputation.
