FBA vs FBM:
The Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) program is very popular with sellers since it makes eCommerce selling extremely convenient. However, it also comes with a number of fees.
Let’s go over both of Amazon’s fulfillment options and review what type of seller they’re best suited for.
The FBA program saves you time and resources by allowing you to ship your inventory to Amazon. The company will store your items for you in one of their warehouses, and when someone buys one of your products they’ll pick, pack, and ship it.
Of course, this service doesn’t come free. You’ll be charged a monthly storage fee while your items sit on Amazon’s shelves, and you’ll also be charged a fulfillment fee when they ship your orders. These fees vary in price, with smaller/lighter products costing less and larger/heavier items costing more.
This is where the FBA estimator comes in handy. You can see exactly what your fees will be so you can decide if the cost is worth it.
Overall, if you’re a new seller, or you’re a solo entrepreneur, then the FBA program is probably right for you. With this system, you don’t have to find space for all your inventory and you don’t have to worry about keeping up with orders. Plus, the FBA program means your products are eligible for Prime shipping, which is a great selling feature.
If you don’t want to pay FBA fees then your other option is Fulfilled by Merchant (FBM). This means you’ll have to store your inventory and fulfill your orders yourself. So while there are fewer fees it’s a lot more work.
Generally, this option usually works best for larger businesses that have more than one employee and an established fulfillment system in place. For example, if you already sell on your own website and are used to fulfilling orders yourself, FBM could be a good fit for you.
Just remember that since Amazon gets a lot of traffic your orders might increase once you start selling on their marketplace, so be prepared for that.
Tips to Lower Your FBA Fees
If you’re going to use the FBA program you’ll want to keep your fees as low as possible. The less you pay in fees the more profit you’ll have left over.
Know the Different Pricing Tiers: As mentioned earlier, the fees vary depending on the size of your products. Storage fees are based on cubic feet while fulfillment fees are based on weight. Be sure to familiarize yourself with the different tiers and try to choose items that fall into the cheapest tiers.
Small and Light Program: If your product is 16 x 9 x 4 inches or less and under 10 oz. you’ll qualify for the small and light program. This means you’ll be eligible for extra-low fulfillment fees. If your product is under 4 oz. you’ll pay the lowest possible fulfillment fee of just $1.97.
Seller Fulfilled Prime: If your product is too heavy to sell through FBA, but you still want to qualify for Prime shipping, then you can apply for Seller Fulfilled Prime. This means you’ll fulfill your orders yourself while still offering Prime shipping to customers. Amazon has high standards for this program though, so you’ll have to meet their requirements.
If you’re curious about what exactly your FBA fees will be, just check the item with the FBA calculator widget. Products that are compact and lightweight will always have the lowest fees.
