If you’re selling products on any marketplace, you can use Amazon’s Fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) service to fulfill orders through Amazon. This saves time and can help grow your business by removing the burden of order logistics and fulfillment. The FBA service will handle the picking, packing, shipping, and customer service. Amazon stores your inventory in their warehouses so your products are ready to ship when the orders come in.

You’ll use an FBA inbound shipment to send stock to their fulfillment centers. Here’s the high-level FBA inbound shipment workflow:

  • Add items to FBA inbound shipment =>
    • Item quantity is reserved in the regular warehouse.
  • Mark shipment as shipped =>
    • Inventory moves into the interim warehouse.
  • Amazon fulfillment center receives shipment =>
    • Inventory automatically moves from interim warehouse to FBA warehouse.
