Pick, pack and ship products.
Businesses registered to sell on Amazon’s Australian Marketplace are now able to access Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) by sending products to Amazon’s warehouse in Melbourne’s South Dandenong. This means when a customer places an order, Amazon will pick, pack and ship the product on behalf of the business, as well as handle all customer returns.
Head of FBA, Amit Mahto (pictured) said, “Size doesn’t matter in the digital economy and Amazon Marketplace helps to level the playing field when it comes to starting or growing a business. We are focused on helping Australian businesses of all sizes succeed by inventing on their behalf and making our technology available to them and FBA is a fantastic example of this.
“Customers shopping on amazon.com.au will be able to access an ever growing and more unique range of products accompanied by the convenience of fast delivery and Amazon’s world-class customer service.”
FBA customers can enjoy free delivery on eligible orders above $49, and other shipping options including a one-day expedited delivery service available in select areas across Australia. With Prime set to launch in mid-2018 all FBA orders will also be eligible for the Prime shipping benefits.
Sellers are charged for the storage space and the orders Amazon fulfils. The cost of shipping is included in fees.
For a limited time, Amazon is running an introductory promotion giving sellers access to free storage and removals when enabled in March, until 31 August 2018 (volume limits and other conditions apply).
