When to fulfil orders yourself

Fulfilment by Seller may be best if your products are not suitable for Fulfilment by Amazon, such as hazardous goods that do not meet fulfilment centre requirements or seasonal products that could incur excessive storage costs. What's more, you may not need Fulfilment by Amazon if you already have a fulfilment network.

In cases like these, Fulfilment by Seller allows you to:
  • Keep your inventory on hand
  • Use your own packaging or labels
  • Stay profitable on products with tighter margins
  • Offer products that are eligible for sale on Amazon, but that are ineligible for Fulfilment by Amazon

Reap the benefits of the Prime badge even if you fulfil your own orders

Seller Fulfilled Prime allows you to ship Prime products directly from your own warehouse. You retain full control of your inventory while reaping the benefits of the Prime badge: a service guarantee that increases visibility and attracts repeat purchases. You just need to commit to fulfilling One-Day Delivery on orders at no additional cost to Prime customers, using Amazon-approved transportation solutions. As soon as you complete your Seller Fulfilled Prime trial period, your enrolled products will be displayed with a Prime badge.

Dropshipping policy

Dropshipping is when you use third parties to fulfil orders on your behalf. Amazon has very specific policies regarding this practice. If this is a method that you intend to use, make sure that you follow these requirements to avoid losing your selling privileges.
