Amazon offers sellers a lot of different packaging options, and it all depends on the means that they choose when it comes to order fulfillment. This means that if you are a seller and selling on Amazon via Fulfillment By Amazon (FBA), that you will have to follow all of the general requirements for shipping inventory to different fulfillment centers. If you are dealing with FBA by yourself as the seller, you will have to meet a lot of exacting standards and deal with many different issues. As the seller, you need to be informed about the fact that Amazon has the right to refuse, return, or repackage any product that does not meet all of the packaging requirements.
The seller may also end up being subject to certain noncompliance fees. This is why so many sellers depend on i Logistics USA for the most efficient order fulfillment services.

Read on to learn more about Fulfillment By Amazon, or FBA, and how i Logistics USA may best fit your needs.
What Is (SFP) Amazon Seller Fulfilled Prime?
Firstly, let’s discuss what SFP is and how i Logistics USA assists sellers with this process. Rather than directly sending inventory to Amazon FBA, here i Logistics USA will ship your orders directly out to the final customers rather than an Amazon Fulfillment Center. When it comes to the Amazon Prep Services necessitated so that Amazon FBA accepts the packages, i Logistics USA will also re-pack and label your product based on your instructions and send it to Amazon exactly as the Amazon guidelines delineate. Here are some of the general packaging rules that the Amazon guidelines dictate (which you would have to handle yourself if you didn’t have i Logistics USA)!
FNSKU (Fulfillment Network Stock Keeping Unit). An FNSKU identifies a product as a Fulfillment by Amazon product and by an SKU. FNSKUs need to be unique, and correspond only to one product. Sellers who market similar items, where the only distinguishes between the products are size, shape, or color, need to give every product variation a new FNSKU.
Tracking-Every package needs to have an exterior barcode of label, which is scanned for easy tracking. The label has to be accessible and readable.
