Below we outline the advantages of shipping direct.
Sending your product to Amazon Warehouses? a2b knows the strict requirements for prepping shipments for FBA. From packaging and labeling to routing and shipping, we make getting your product to Amazon simple. We can even manage your Amazon portal.
Shipping direct helps to promote your brand. Shipment touchpoints, including the shipping label, packing list and packaging ensure that the customer experiences your branding versus that of Amazon’s. This is especially important to building customer loyalty and building awareness of your brand.
Using Amazon FBA to fulfill Amazon orders requires stocking Amazon warehouses in advance. This inventory then becomes less flexible as it cannot easily be used for other sales channels, likely increasing the overall inventory needed for your business. By fulfilling from a2b, your inventory is highly available for any sales channel that you choose. And because you don’t have to first stock Amazon’s warehouses, you save the costs of preparing the inventory to meet Amazon’s requirements and the shipping costs to get them there.
Bundling or Kitting items together can create efficiencies. It’s also a way to provide a unique and impressive presentation for your customers. a2b has dedicated staff to support these, and many other Value-Add services, providing you with flexibility and cost savings.
Amazon’s facilities are very busy places where space is often sold at a premium. Historically, storage rates at Amazon also change with the seasons, becoming much more expensive during busier periods. At a2b, our space is designed to offer more flexibility and comes at a much more affordable and predictable cost.
When selling on Amazon and fulfilling with FBA, the customer essentially belongs to Amazon, not you. Customer data and contact information is restricted and/or incomplete resulting in the inability for you to create a relationship and engage with the customer. Fulfilling with a2b gives this power back to you, and through our extensive Business Intelligence (BI) technology, a2b Engage, you gain insight into who your customers are.
The brand experience can be further enhanced by enlisting a2b’s Customer Care services.
