Hello to everyone,

I'm writing because I would like to know wich are the benefits of using FBA (fulfillment by Amazon) or dropship directly from the supplier. I mean wich of that options would be better and why?

Hi Luis,

FBA is a warehousing service, not a supplier as such. So you still need to purchase stock in bulk, then they will store it, pick and distribute your orders for you. So there really isn't a comparison to make between dropshipping and FBA. The comparison would be between wholesale (which you would use for FBA) and dropshipping, which of those two best suited you.

Cheers

I would like to buy a lot of a product from a wholesaler to get a better price and then send it to FBA. It will be expensive?, I mean to have the inventory in Amazon's warehouse.
