Fulfilment By Amazon (FBA) with urBranch
What is FBA? You have two options for shipment on Amazon as a seller. FBM (fulfillment by Merchant) & FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon). FBM allows you to ship your merchandise yourself. You can pack the item and can send it to your customers through your own courier option. You would need to have a warehouse space to fulfil this job.
FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) allows you to pay Amazon and let it control all the shipment. You would need to determine the amount of inventory you want to store at Amazon Fulfillment Center. You will pack and send the items to Amazon fulfillment centers and they will repack them and will ship them to the customers through their own service and also will provide customer support on the product.
There is another option available, known as “Seller Fulfilled Prime” (SFP). SFP allows a seller to fulfil the shipment by self but they are awarded by the Amazon with “Prime Badge”. Isn’t it attractive? Sellers are the responsible to ship the order within two days and the shipment policies are strict. If the seller is successfully fulfilling this strict shipping deadline requirement then he is going to be awarded by this badge.
