Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)

Explore FBA with Us

Amazon's FBA program is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for small to mid-size businesses to increase both sales and exposure to a larger market. Choosing to sign up with FBA is a solid business decision for most. You can gain access to offer free shipping and would have the opportunity to sell to Amazon Prime customers.

There are, however, some negative sides to Amazon FBA program. There is a lack of flexibility and you would have to agree to have your customer order filled according to Amazon’s stringent guidelines rather than your own terms. If you do not agree to or violate their terms you risk being fined or having your products returned to you. You may even get barred from participating in the FBA program.

Boundless Features

Amazon Program Compliance

Compliance is non-negotiable with Fulfillment by Amazon. The rules are strictly enforced and, if not followed, can result in your products being refused or returned, even disposed of by Amazon. They may also assess additional charges and fines to your account. There is a real chance for this program to become cost-prohibitive if you let things go out of hand.

Fortwix can handle product preparation and listing before your inventory is sent to Amazon to guarantee compliance with FBA program.

Only Pay as You Use

Customers are only charged for the orders we process and send to Amazon on their behalf. If you don’t send anything in a given month, then there are no charges for that month. If you only ship 5 packages the next month, then you will only pay for 5 items. There are no hidden or extra fees involved – EVER!

Distributed Warehouses

Our warehouses are strategically located near Amazon fulfillment centers. What this means is if you need an item sent to the Amazon warehouse or you need a visual check on your Amazon inventory, we can take care of it effortlessly.

All items are processed at minimal cost. Remember, you can still split and consolidate your shipments to maximize your savings.

Software

FBA is where our AI really shines through. Don’t be put off by all the regulations that Amazon insists on. It can be complex, but the AI system makes it as simple as it can get. AI is user-friendly and highly efficient. The system is easy to learn and navigate.

Convenient Storage

If you need to hold an item for a while before forwarding to Amazon, we can hold it for you at one of our distributed warehouse facilities until you are ready to send it to Amazon. You pay for each day you store your product/inventory with us, but the rates are second to none.

Our facilities are secure with both physical and electronic measures in place to protect your assets from unauthorized access.
