Today, I will share with you the 10 differences between Amazon FBA warehouse and third-party overseas warehouse delivery, so that you can use it as a reference when choosing services in the future. Amazon warehouse is also a kind of overseas warehouse, but this is the official Amazon Warehouses should be more formal and strict in terms of management and operation. In terms of functions, Amazon FBA warehouses and third-party overseas warehouses are very close. Basically, some Amazon FBA warehouses serve third-party overseas warehouses, but it depends on the specific differences between third-party overseas warehouse service providers. ,for reference only.
1. The difference between warehousing
FBA warehouses are much stricter, for example, they will be very strict in terms of outer box requirements, labels, size, and weight. Maybe if you are not careful, you will not be able to enter the FBA warehouse because some details are not done well. The requirements for warehousing in overseas warehouses are much looser, except for some dangerous goods, still explosive and other contraband, which are not allowed to enter. For example: if the outer packaging is damaged or the sealing tape is colored, the FBA warehouse cannot enter, but the overseas warehouse can receive it, and provide certain value-added services, change the carton packaging, and replace it with the sealing box that meets the requirements of the FBA warehouse Tape, and label it before sending it to the FBA warehouse.
2. The difference in the speed of listing
Overseas warehouses are put on the shelves faster than FBA warehouses, especially during peak season, when popular FBA warehouses are sold out, they will encounter goods that have already entered the warehouse. But it has been slow to see the shelves, especially those delivered by UPS and Fedex are obviously slower than those delivered by trucks.
Flying Bird International's 2021 KPI in warehouse operations, from October to December, the delivery accuracy rate is 99.77%, the order completion rate is 99.77%, and the delivery timeliness rate is 99.68%.
3. The difference in fees
Warehouse fees are a top concern for sellers. Amazon warehouses have relatively higher storage fees, shelf fees, and out-of-stock fees for large products and heavy-weight products, so these types of products are suitable for overseas warehouses. For small products, fast turnover, and high-quality products, you can choose to store them in the FBA warehouse.
4. Differences in user experience recognition
Buyers and users generally recognize Amazon warehouses and think that Amazon can provide better service quality. So buyers will be more inclined to Amazon shipping.
5. The difference between head-haul logistics services
Amazon FBA warehouse does not provide first-way logistics services. All the first-way services (first-way transportation, customs clearance, tax payment, pickup, delivery, etc.) before entering the warehouse need to be solved by the sellers themselves.
Overseas warehouses can generally provide headway services, from domestic headway, to the United States, and one-stop freight services such as delivery services for overseas warehouses, which are very convenient.
6. Differences in Inventory Limits
Amazon has strict inventory limits during the off-season. The inventory capacity limitation caused by the recent IPI failure to meet the standards, the total inventory quantity limitation of the store, etc., prevent the seller from stocking a lot of goods in the FBA warehouse. Once the peak season inventory can not keep up with sales, there will be a risk of out-of-stock. Here, another part can be transferred to the overseas warehouse, and if the inventory is insufficient, it can be transferred from the overseas warehouse to the FBA warehouse.
Overseas warehouses generally do not have this restriction, as long as there is room, they can be placed.
7. Differences in value-added services
If you need special value-added services, overseas warehouses are more flexible than FBA. Many overseas warehouses are opened by Chinese. For example, operations such as taking photos, unpacking function testing, returning and changing labels, etc., are due to FBA warehouses in terms of communication and service.
Other expenses such as inventory inventory and destruction processing are also less than those of FBA official.
8. Differences in return processing
Amazon supports buyers to return products without reason, and the returned products will not be put on sale again even if there is no problem.
Overseas warehouses can check the returned products, and the functions are simple to detect, such as whether it is powered on. Change the packaging again, and it can be sold again after labeling.
9.Listing ranking recommendation difference
Using the FBA warehouse, it is possible to provide Listing rankings and get more exposure. There are also some special offers. The use of overseas warehouses is a slight disadvantage, and you need to do off-site drainage or independent stations to increase sales.
10. Differences in product storage risks
If the product is placed in the FBA warehouse, if there is a violation of the Amazon account, such as infringement. Amazon will withhold the managed inventory. There is no such risk of being withheld if stored in an overseas warehouse.
