What are the Amazon Models Available for Selling Products?

Amazon provides two primary options for selling your products: Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) and Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM).

Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)

How does it work?
You send your products to Amazon's fulfillment centers, and they handle storage, packaging, and shipping when a customer places an order. Amazon also manages customer service and returns.

✅ FBA products may qualify for Amazon Prime, enhancing their visibility.
✅ Additionally, Amazon manages packaging, shipping, and customer service, saving you time.

❌ This service incurs fees for storage, fulfillment, and other services.
❌ Moreover, you have less control over the shipping and handling process.

Fulfillment by Merchant (FBM)

How does it work?
You're responsible for storing, packaging, and shipping your products, as well as handling customer service and returns.

✅ You have greater control over your expenses by overseeing the shipping and fulfillment process.

❌ Your products might not be eligible for Amazon Prime, potentially impacting visibility.
❌ Additionally, the process can be time-consuming, restricting your business's scalability.
