In July 2019, Amazon announced the launch of Amazon Prep Services – an effective way to get your FBA products prepared and packaged directly at the fulfilment centre. As part of their continuous endeavour to simplify selling on Amazon, this service allows you to focus on growing your business while they take care of the rest.
The prep services available as part of this program are taping, bubble-wrap, poly-bagging, opaque-bagging and product labelling. Starting July 1st 2019 you can opt-in for the Amazon Prep Service Program by following either of the below steps:
During the FBA shipment creation workflow, select “Amazon” under Who Preps’ and/or Who labels in the Prepare and Label Products sections.
On the Seller Central home page, click on Settings > Fulfilment by Amazon > Optional Services > Who Preps/Labels > Select “Amazon”
Its really important that you review the packaging and prep requirements before sending your products to Amazon. In the event you choose to prep the products yourself but the products are found to have missing / incomplete / damaged prep, Amazon may refuse your inventory at the fulfilment centre and/or block future deliveries.
For more information, and to make sure that your packaging and prep requirements meet the standards for FBA, please contact us here at Sell Global.
