Top 10 FAQ About Amazon FBA

1.Q: Does anyone have a checklist for everything your shipment needs to have? Ex: UPC, Box Barcodes, etc. I just want to make sure I don’t have any huge problems so If you have a checklist let me know. Thanks.

A: Box label, product label, packing list if u have more than 1 box.

2.Q: Can I print the UPC on my package sample order and take pictures with it for the listing (with the UPC on the back). But for the bulk order I’ll print the FNSKU on the back package and send to my customers?

A: Whether your images have UPC or FNSKU, it doesn’t matter. And should preferably not show none. What you should rather worry is about showing your LOGO.

4.Q: What other fees Amazon charge per unit except fba and sales commission? Amazon is charging me promotional rebate. Whats that? Anyone please?

A: Amazon don’t charge you any promotional rebate. Rebate means this is a rebate payment back to you. Amazon give some special discount to buyer like 50% off out of good will. Not you are not the one who offered this discount to buyer. Amazon did. So amazon will refund this 50% discount value back in form of promotional rebate since it was amazon’s liability that they decided to give it for 50% off and you not the one who decided to give this discount.

5.Q: What is the way to pay border duty Tax when creating a shipment plan on FBA Seller central?

A: Ask your supplier to give you a quote including all customs expenses.

6.Q: What is the return limit % to keep from being banned from FBA? So far I am getting returns and it’s %10. Any ideas? Any Amazon rule to be considered?

A: You don’t get banned your listing gets closed down but you can just relist it and tell Amazon how you’re fixing the problem.

7.Q: Hi, everyone! What do you think is the best and cheapest way to send 8 – 50lb boxes with oversized items to a fulfillment center?

A: Pallet is the cheapest way to move oversized, heavy items. You will need to get a pallet that fits amazons standards as well as be able to shrink wrap. You can get shrink wrap rollers on U-line if you think it’s worth the investment or even use Saran Wrap.

8.Q: When sending directly from China to FBA, do you change the “ship from” address to your supplier’s address for FBA label?

A:1. Either do you write your supplier, or address on the ‘ship from’, would be OK; 2. For fnsku sticker, you can label on any place of your sale unit, but advise to cover other barcode if any printing there.

9.Q: Is anyone located in the USA and sell in multiple marketplaces (different countries)? What is the best practice to handle imports, duties, customs clearance, etc when shipping your goods to FBA in other countries?

A: If you are importing in from China and selling to FBA in other countries like USA (best market), UK (2nd) and Canada, you want to ship from China directly to those countries so you don’t have to deal with double import tax. For example, import to USA, pay for its duty and send to Canada to get hit with import tax again. However, there are some cases that it doesn’t make sure to send to the USA and after that to Canada but very rare.

10.Q: Which packaging is better my supplier offers PE bags and OPP bags?

A: Have them send you a picture or sample with it wrapped in one and a spare of the other type in the box.
