Hi,

The service of fulfillment amazon is the same as Dropshipping. It is good service? It is cost effective?

Thanks

Hi Malva.

Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) is not drop shipping. You purchase product, take pics, put Amazon labels over the UPC codes, pack boxes, print shipping labels, and send it on it's way.

Amazon then processes it for you and stores it in their warehouses until it sells and they ship it. 14 days later you get paid.

There are some Salehoo Suppliers that will sell you product and ship it to Amazon for you. Mountain View Movies for instance.

There a many many videos about FBA on Link hidden: Login to view

Hi Dale;
Do you have personal experience using the FBA? If so, what has been your experience?
Is this something you recommend?

Thanks,
Sierra

Hi Sierra.
I am just beginning with FBA. They have my first shipment and I am working on my second. Nothing sold yet but like all online selling you need to promote.
Yes I would HIGHLY recommend FBA. If you can find a supplier who will sell to you and ship your product directly to FBA for you, you will have hit the jack pot. There is one such Salehoo supplier I know of Mountain View Movies. I have no connection with them but I may place an order in the future.

You maybe able to negotiate with other suppliers to do the same for you.

I have found this situation to be the best business model I have ever run across. Simple outsourcing.

Don't forget to watch youtube.com videos. Just type in FBA.

I wish you well with your endeavors Sierra.

Perhaps Salehoo can create a new category of suppliers that supply FBA?

Try looking up Amazon in your own country. They are an international company. My experience is very new. You may also want to try eBay. Tell me what country is your home and I will research what may be a good site for your selling.

Hi I am new here and I am interested in getting canvass suppliers to work with. I have a set of my own designs I want them to print for me on a canvass and I can sell on eBay or Amazon. Does anyone know about this stuff? I would really appreciate any help I can get, thanks.

Amazon does not seem to have a presence in Puerto Rico. Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) will process your stuff if you ship it them. There are some restricted categories such as apparel you simply cannot sell on except to get permission from Amazon which is a difficult task.

Explore Link hidden: Login to view and you should be able to find your answers. This is Amazon for Spain. It is the only site in Spanish.
