On the FBA delivery notes, I have described in the previous article, but because of the advent of holiday season, the number of these questions increased a lot, I will do a simple summary here.
1. FBA delivery with light weight
In order to avoid wasting money on shipping costs, the seller must consider the collaction of light and heavy products, (of course, if your product is not foam, this can be skipped), if your product is light, the goods must be considered to be combined with heavy goods and foam, in order to reduce the volume of unnecessary heavy freight costs.
2. No Product UPC Error
Because FBA shipped require a product bar code on each product, the seller must be verified when shipped, to avoid the wrong bar code. This situation may occur especially when multiple SKUs are shipped at the same time. Once the packagers are careless, there is a possibility that the UPC will be misplaced. If this happens, it will waste time and cause unnecessary costs. There may also be encountered bad reviews from customers later.
3. Do not mistake the number of boxes, single box do not overweight, the number of delivery need to be accurate.
The total number of shipping boxes in each FBA shipping plan can not to be wrong, neither more or less. Because the shipping label is already defined in the shipping plan, and once the shipping number is incorrect, it may result in a delay to ship to the warehouse; Amazon has strict requirements for single box weight and volume, the best single-box weight control within 22Kg, the unilateral length of the package can not exceed 25 ", is about 63.5CM. if it is shipped through the pallet , There are corresponding standards, you can verify in the background; the quantity of each shipment plan must be accurate. Although a small amount of error in the off-season has little effect, the current season, many sellers's wrong number problem have resulted in the products unable to enter the warehouse, and was asked to explain the reasons and write the rectification program, also has been suspended to create a new shipping plan features.
4. How to deal with FBA warehouse unsalable inventory?
Recently, many sellers suddenly discovered that FBA monthly storage charges increases up a lot. yes, for the annual peak season and off-season, Amazon will have two charges, warehouse intense season, FBA monthly storage charges has increase up a lot, for some sellers' unmarketable Inventory, it is recommended to deal with it as soon as possible. If the value is not high, do not intend to sell again, you can directly discard goods. but if your products are unmarketable because of the listing is deleted, it is recommended to find a reliable local warehouse to do for short positions, and then re-warehousing .
Of course, the withdrawal of the warehouse also need to be careful, if it is the normal sales of products, do not temporary withdraw the warehouse because of distressed of current monthly storage costs. According to the current policy, if a selling listing is withdrawaled, it will be suspended to re-create warehousing plan in December 31.
5. What to do if a new listing encountered a dangerous goods review?
In general, Amazon will investigate the goods with electricity, and will require the seller to provide the appropriate certificate. In the off-season, this is usually relatively simple, do not even need to provide any certificate, it passed about three days, but when the holiday season comes, Amazon will take much time to do such things. if you encounter this situation, then prepare and provide your certificate as early as possible.
The last point to remind you is that, during the peak season, logistics usually slower than ordinary season, the logistics cost must be high. So the seller must stocked enough products as possible, at the same time, by the way of a combination of a variety of shipping methods to reduce the logistics risk.
