How to Choose an Amazon FBA Prep Service

Wondering how to choose an Amazon or FBA prep service? Fulfillment by Amazon can provide many benefits to companies that are willing and able to comply with Amazon’s many stipulations. ShipWizard can prepare inventory for FBA, whether you require containers to be opened and SKUs to be repackaging en masse, or whether you need products to be labeled with barcodes. Our teams are equipped and trained to handle jobs of all sizes and ensure that you meet your Amazon prep requirements.

What is FBA Prep Service?

FBA stands for fulfillment by Amazon. Sellers across the United States, particularly online retailers, send their inventory to Amazon fulfillment centers to take advantage of the extraordinary reach and efficiency their operations permit. However, obtaining the benefits of Amazon’s fulfillment network is not as simple as boxing up your inventory and handing it over to a courier. Goods that are accepted at the Fulfillment Center must conform with a list of strict rules. Rather than muddle through the process themselves, many companies trust an FBA prep center to get their inventory ready for Amazon. Mainly, this process is focused on the packaging and labeling of items, but there are some categories of inventory that have specific requirements.
In particular, sellers that import goods must submit their inventory for inspection in order to be eligible for fulfillment by Amazon.

If companies botch their FBA prep it can be a costly process, as return of inventory to the sender is paid for by the sender. If inventory is damaged in transit to Amazon but mistakenly gets sent to customers, it is likely that they will complain and return the item. A sufficient quantity of complaints will not only harm your metrics, you may see the listing for that item suppressed on the Amazon marketplace, or in egregious cases your vendor account could be suspended. It is therefore important to choose an FBA prep and shipping service with experience in your field, to ensure that they can safely get your inventory to the Amazon warehouse and through their procedure first time.
