Preventing FBA Shipping Problems | What You Need to Know
If you are an Amazon Seller, then there is a very good chance that you use Fulfillment by Amazon, otherwise known as FBA, to ship your items to customers. While Fulfillment by Amazon is a fantastic and cost-effective way to ensure that your merchandise reaches your customers in a timely fashion, if you do not take certain steps, you may find that you encounter certain shipping problems. Some of the most common shipping problems that we hear Sellers complain about include deleting shipments, abandoning shipments, and deleting ASINs from shipment IDs when ASINS are simultaneously being shipped on other shipment or manifest IDs. Please continue reading and speak with AVASK Group to learn more about how to avoid some of the most common FBA shipping problems.
How Can I Avoid Common Shipping Problems?
Fortunately, there are several actions you can take to avoid some of the most common shipping problems. Some of those actions are as follows:
- Ensure that you train your employees regarding FBA’s shipping policies so all requirements are met without issue.
- Never create a shipping plan with Amazon before ensuring that your suppliers have sufficient inventory to cover the entirety of your shipping plan.
- Upon approval of your shipping plan, ensure that you add validation steps so your products are shipped to Amazon according to your plan.
