FBA / Amazon
It’s easy to get lost in the Amazon… let Advantage be your guide!
Amazon’s influence in the skyrocketing world of e-commerce is undeniable. At Advantage, we work with Amazon every day on behalf of our clients, whether they are managing their inventory with Advantage and sending bulk orders for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), drop shipping via Merchant Fulfilled Network (MFN)/Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM), and now for orders under Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP). Advantage is now an established provider for this important sales channel.
For businesses that choose to sell through Amazon, we understand there are business decisions to be made on how best to manage fulfillment, and we stand ready to support whatever direction they choose to go.
Advantage brings flexibility and cost savings to the table for its clients, as Amazon often represents one sales channel but not the only sales channel. Businesses often sell the same inventory that goes to Amazon through traditional wholesale channels to brick and mortar retailers, or through their own shopping cart, or through other E-tailers such as Walmart.com, Kohls.com, Nordstrom.com… and many many more.At Advantage, we are highly adept at managing the routing and compliance complexities that go along with each one of these channels.
Advantage clients that wish to maintain the branding and premium “unboxing” experience for their customers no longer have to avoid FBA due to the brown box packaging and lack of ‘high-end’ package branding. At Advantage the brands we support, if they choose, can sell directly on Amazon, be fulfilled by Advantage, and maintain their customer branding and premium experience. As we have seen over the past few years, this branding experience continues to grow with our clients.
Advantage opens the door to cost savings as well for clients working with Amazon. Businesses that store their goods with Advantage can control the high impact storage costs that are associated with FBA, especially when product doesn’t sell in a timely manner. Additionally, Advantage has highly competitive shipping options available, including expedited methods that are often necessary to comply with SFP’s strict requirements. Advantage can open the door to storage and fulfillment from multiple facilities to reduce shipping cost by locating goods closer to your end customer. This is especially important for compliance with SFP’s 2-day delivery guarantee.
Amazon is enjoying huge growth, as is Amazon Prime, and Advantage is pleased to offer our complimentary services to businesses that choose to work with us. For businesses that open the door to the Amazon sales channel, Advantage is the right partner to make the most out of it!
