You sell it, we ship it. Amazon has one of the most advanced fulfillment networks in the world. With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you store your products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products. FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers.
As long as I have my tools and materials, I can depend on FBA to keep my income constant.

The benefits of FBA
Your products are eligible for Amazon Prime members to enjoy FREE One-Day Delivery on Domestic eligible items.
Prime members love FREE One-Day Delivery, and all Amazon.sg customers can get free shipping on eligible orders. When you list products for FBA, they are eligible for free shipping, too. Qualified FBA listings are displayed with the Prime logo, so customers know that Amazon handles packing, delivery, customer service, and returns.
Customers get Amazon's trusted customer service and returns.
When using FBA your business accesses the extraordinary value of Amazon's world-class customer service. FBA leverages the Amazon customer service network stretching around the globe, managing customer inquiries, refunds, and returns for your FBA orders.
Pay as you go—you are charged for storage space and the orders we fulfill. The cost of shipping is included in your fees, with no extra charge for Amazon Prime FREE Shipping on eligible orders. Fees for Selling on Amazon may apply.
FBA storage and fulfillment fees
Inventory storage fees
Charged for all items stored in an Amazon fulfillment center, and based on your daily average volume of inventory measured in cubic feet. See how to determine the product size tier for your items.
Long-term storage fees
Assessed monthly for all items stored in a fulfillment center for more than 365 days. Maintaining sound inventory health can help you avoid long-term storage fees.
Charged per unit for picking and packing your orders, shipping and handling, customer service, and product returns.
Unplanned services fees
Charged when inventory arrives at a fulfillment center without proper preparation or labeling, making unplanned services required.
Removal order fees
You can have Amazon return or dispose of your inventory in a fulfillment center for a per-item fee.
Returns processing fees
Charged on orders when Amazon provides a customer with free return shipping.
FBA inventory management
Use the tools in your seller account to list products, create shipping plans, send in shipments, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from Amazon fulfillment centers.
Your Inventory Performance Dashboard displays your Inventory Performance Index (IPI) score, along with key influencing factors. Be sure to check your IPI score regularly—a low score could lead to overage fees and limit your ability to send more inventory.
Manage excess inventory
Optimize your inventory levels by knowing when to mark down or remove your products. Monitor detailed information about storage fees, opportunities to drive sales, and suggestions to help improve returns on your inventory.
Keep your listings active by including necessary pricing and condition information and resolving errors. If your inventory is in fulfillment centers without an associated active listing, it’s not available for purchase.
Maintaining your FBA inventory at the right level is key to offering fast delivery to Prime customers. Amazon’s restock tools on Seller Central can help you:
Get more one day and same day orders
Protect your sales rank
Minimize excess inventory
The tools offer recommendations based on your sales history, demand forecast and seasonality, and your inputs to help you determine how much inventory to send and when to send it. They are free to use, and directly integrated into Seller Central’s shipment creation workflow.
