How Amazon FBA works in 5 steps
1. When you publish what products select the option “Amazon logistics”
Logically you must already be an Amazon seller or at least have registered to be able to publish your products. If you have not started selling through Amazon yet, this is a good time to contact us.
Once inside your Amazon seller management panel, when you are going to publish a product, you will have to select the “Amazon logistics” option and you will be guided throughout the process of shipping to Amazon logistics centers.
2. Send your products to the Amazon logistics center
You will have to follow the shipping guidelines so that your items arrive in perfect condition at the logistics center assigned by Amazon.
In this step, you can select your own carrier to send your products or take advantage of the carrier program associated with what the shipment will be much more simplified, faster processing, and taking advantage of the advantages in the rates that Amazon has already negotiated with the transport companies.
And all this without any commitment to the transport company, you will not have to register or commit to anything.
