"Sometimes the problem is not knowing there's a problem," it's sometimes said – and if they don't know, they definitely should.
Amazon sellers have enough on their plate without having to wade into vast and confusing programming environments, even if they exist to make their lives easier. That's why we've rounded up some of the least talked about, little known, and least understood Amazon seller programs – so Amazon sellers can see what programs are available. If you want to make your life easier, shouldn't it be done with minimal effort?
So here are six of the best Amazon FBA programs and other seller programs you may not have heard of but should definitely be familiar with!
1. FBA grading and resale
An Amazon selling program called FBA Grade and Resell allows sellers to relist and sell "used" inventory. Sellers must be invited to join the program, but once they do, it saves them from paying for returns or disposing of undelivered inventory. Better yet, you submit the item, but Amazon will create the listing for you after evaluating its condition.
There is a small handling fee of $1.50 for small standard size items and $4.10 for large/special oversized items. The program is only recommended for items worth more than $15, and according to the Amazon Seller Program webpage , the list of ineligible items includes expired inventory, bulky and oversized items, and items that "historically generate low feedback ratings . "
2. FBA liquidation
Returns are an inevitable part of the sales cycle. Even Amazon sellers have to deal with them. FBA Liquidations is an Amazon FBA program that allows sellers to recover some of their costs while avoiding other unavoidable fees associated with customer returns. FBA Liquidations hires a wholesale liquidator to sell your returned inventory in lieu of paying storage fees on your behalf.
Amazon refunds what they call a "net recovery value," which is based on your sales history , inventory price, and the sales history of each item. Note that Amazon charges a 15% referral fee for places over $1.90, plus a 25-cent processing fee, depending on the size and weight of the returned item. But it might be worth it to get those pesky returns off your plate.
3. Remote fulfillment with FBA
For an Amazon selling program that can expand your sales from the US to all of the great North American countries, FBA's remote fulfillment is unmatched. Customers pay most of the taxes, duties, and fees , while sellers pay higher fulfillment fees. But the program itself allows Prime customers in Mexico and Canada to get free shipping in 5 to 9 days and 7 to 12 days, respectively.
Products must be FBA enabled in Mexico and Canada and be trade-compliant while being compliant . Fees are based on product size and weight; they fluctuate between $7 and $13 for standard-sized items — at least in Canada — but can go up significantly for oversized items.
4. Amazon Business Seller
Open to businesses of all sizes, Amazon Business Seller is a targeted way to find businesses as your customers. This B2B Amazon seller program gives your company the opportunity to connect with businesses looking to buy what you sell .
Currently, participating as a commercial seller doesn’t cost more than what you would pay as a professional seller — a subscription fee of $39.99 per month. But you'll get the benefit of allowing you to feature bulk sales and commercial pricing. It's a numbers game, and the Amazon Business Seller Program is all about numbers.
5. FBA New Products Featured
FBA New Selection qualifies FBA sellers for a variety of Amazon discounts, freebies, and opportunities. Just make sure you sign up for all the other programs that offer discounts, freebies, and opportunities! Select eligible businesses can receive 90 days of free storage per month for the first 50 standard-sized units, and free storage for the first 30 oversized units, with no liquidation fees! They also get free promotional advertising campaigns and other benefits. According to Amazon, new sellers who publish their first purchasable ASINs and start using FBA in 2022 will automatically join the program.
The idea is to attract businesses in the hope that after you get so many benefits, you will stick around. To become an existing FBA seller, your Inventory Performance Index must be 400 or higher – so it's definitely easier to sign up as a newbie. After that, keep your score—if you fall below that magic number, Amazon can surprise you.
6. FBA Live
FBA Onsite is a program designed to allow FBA sellers to better manage their warehouses using a simplified cloud-based management system.
Onsite manages the shipment of Amazon sellers' inventory and charges a fee based on the size and weight of each shipment . It takes the FBA program one step further, so the entire process from order to order fulfillment is managed and executed with little fuss or even attention from sellers. For sellers who know what they are doing, FBA Onsite can be run like a business without the worry of running a business.
