Amazon Fulfilled by Merchant

Amazon Fulfilled by Merchant is a method in which a business selling on Amazon manages its fulfillment processes. The seller is responsible for inventory storage, order fulfillment, returns, and customer service. Whereas, with FBA, companies have prime status, and Amazon handles fulfillment for you as well as customer service.

How does it work?

The Amazon fulfilled by a merchant is when a business fulfills their orders when they’re sold, either through self-fulfillment or by partnering with a third-party logistics provider. New start-ups choose this procedure due to FBA having an approval process and additional costs.

  2. Warehouse products in your fulfillment center
  3. Ship orders out on time
