Did you know that 2020 witnessed nearly half of all Amazon sales coming from third-party sellers, out of which about 2/3 were using the FBA program? The Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA) program allows third-party sellers to automate their order fulfillment and shipping services. Under this service, Amazon handles many operations including order packaging, shipping, delivery, returns and refunds.

Today, he sheds some light on the perks of selling on Amazon through its FBA program to help you decide if it fits your business needs.
Excellent Logistics Support
Once you send your products to the Amazon warehouse, you don’t need to worry about the shipping, packaging and even storage. It’s fairly easy to use the platform and register your products on FBA. This allows you to save a lot of money as you don’t have to invest in a big warehouse. With FBA, you have unlimited storage access to store your products, no matter how big or small they’re in size and quantity.
Fast Shipping & Free Delivery
With the introduction to Amazon Prime, customers have the facility to get their orders within a day or two, along with free shipping. With fast/free delivery, you get more positive customer reviews, which ultimately benefits the business. This has only been possible because of the thousands of Amazon fulfillment centers spread around the world.
Outstanding Customer Support
From the moment your business is registered with Amazon, you no longer stay in charge of handling customer communication. Amazon’s 24/7 customer support handles it all for you, making the customer experience smooth and hassle-free.
More Time To Scale Your Business
With Amazon taking care of the inventory, the labeling, packing, shipping, tracking, and customer service, you get more time to focus on the other aspects of your business. You can pay more attention to sourcing new inventory, market research, partnerships with suppliers, etc.
More Online Visibility
When you sell through the FBA program, your product is more likely to appear higher in the search results of Amazon, as compared to other non-FBA sellers. You’ll have your product listed by price/shipping method. This provides you a competitive edge over your competitors on the platform that don’t have prime shipping, which is automatically applied as the shipping method when selling on FBA. More importantly, people from all over the world trust Amazon, which brings in huge credibility to your products as well.
