FBA features, services, fees, and resources

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) offers a variety of features and services to help you manage and grow your business. Resources include quick reference guides and video tutorials. FBA fees cover these costs:

  • Storing your products in Amazon fulfillment centers
  • Picking, packing, and shipping orders
  • Providing customer service for products that are sold

Inventory storage in the EU includes VAT obligations. For more information, visit Europe tax and regulatory considerations.

FBA features

Global selling: Expand your business globally through FBA Export and Amazon Global Selling.

Customer service for FBA orders: Amazon provides customer service on your behalf when you sell products through FBA.

Virtual product bundles: Brand owners can combine 2 to 5 related ASINs, which are then sold together from a single detail page. You can then offer the bundles without packaging items together or changing the inventory that you ship to Amazon.

Sales reports for virtual product bundles: Brand owners can easily manage this inventory without keeping track of new ASINs or SKUs.

Scan & Label: Scan & Label lets you scan your products with a barcode scanner. You can then print and apply labels one at a time, making it easier to label units properly.

FBA prep investigation: If you believe prep requirements don’t apply to your product, you can ask us to investigate.

Fulfillment program portals: This Help page provides portal links to popular FBA programs such as Subscribe & Save and Small and Light.
