How to Start a Fulfillment by Amazon Business

Fulfillment by Amazon is similar to other eCommerce websites with a slight variation. There are different types of eCommerce sites such as affiliate sites, drop ship and fulfillment by Amazon.
The FBA Business model involves serious logistics done on your behalf by Amazon. They store your product, package and deliver when an order is made.
They warehouse, provide packaging material and courier service. It is unlike regular eCommerce websites where the store owner sources the products and contends with logistics.

They offer store owners good distribution network and customer base. You can increase your product offering and improve sellers rank. Try to expand your scope by building a dedicated website.
