Amazon FBA Prep and FBM Strategies for Success

Amazon offers two primary platforms for businesses looking to sell on its marketplace: Vendor Central and Seller Central. Vendor Central is designed for manufacturers and distributors who want to sell their products directly to Amazon. On the other hand, Seller Central is geared towards individual sellers and small to medium-sized businesses, providing them with a platform to list and sell products directly to Amazon customers.

Within Seller Central, businesses have the option to utilize Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) or Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP). FBA allows sellers to store their inventory in Amazon’s fulfillment centers, and Amazon takes care of the picking, packing, and shipping of orders. This service not only enhances efficiency but also makes products eligible for Amazon Prime, providing customers with fast and reliable shipping.

Alternatively, Seller Fulfilled Prime enables sellers to fulfill orders from their own facilities while still offering the coveted Prime benefits. This option gives sellers more control over the fulfillment process, allowing them to maintain their brand identity and manage their inventory independently. Choosing between these options depends on a business’s scale, logistics capabilities, and desired level of control over the fulfillment process.
