Amazon FBM in Ireland
When you sell products through Amazon, you have two options for order fulfillment. Do it yourself, also known as fulfilled by merchant (FBM). Or use fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), sending your stock to Amazon’s warehouses to be fulfilled on your behalf. The former is massively time-consuming, while the latter is both tricky and expensive. But what if there was another way? That’s where Autofulfil’s FBM services in Ireland can help. We provide Amazon FBM solutions in Ireland for Amazon sellers that can save you time, money, and a whole lot of hassle.
The pros and cons of Amazon FBM vs. FBA
FBA is a popular option for Amazon sellers who see it as the most straightforward option. But many don’t realise the myriad benefits of FBM as an alternative:
The problem with in-house FBM
Amazon FBM allows you to save money compared to FBA by fulfilling orders yourself – all while taking advantage of Amazon’s huge customer base and ready-made eCommerce selling platform. Unfortunately, the simplicity of setting up an Amazon store isn’t matched when it comes to picking, packing and shipping orders to your customers in-house. Demand will eventually increase, leaving you with a scalability problem on your hands.
How does Amazon FBM outsourcing work?
Amazon FBM outsourcing means choosing Amazon’s fulfilled by merchant order fulfillment model, but letting an experienced 3PL company do the fulfillment work on your behalf. That’s where Autofulfil comes into the equation.
All you need to do is send us your Amazon stock. We’ll then check items into our system, which immediately become available on your Amazon store. When orders come in through your Amazon store, we’ll pick, pack, and ship them to your customers. Because our warehouse management system can be integrated directly with your Amazon store, everything is done automatically.
Here’s what that means for you:
With our resources on your side, you don’t have to be afraid of more orders coming in. Quite the opposite. Spend all your time on marketing, sales, and product development to grow your business with the peace of mind of knowing that your dedicated FBM partner can take care of fulfillment.
We fulfill 99.7% of our orders on the same day they’re received. That means we can get products to your customers as soon as possible to improve their experience and increase the chances of repeat sales.
Working with Autofulfil, you benefit from our close relationships with shipping companies, plus serious buying power. The result is lower prices per shipment to save you money and maximise your profit margins.
Our state-of-the-art fulfillment centre can help you with multi-channel sales too. Make the most of your inventory by selling on Amazon, plus Shopify, WooCommerce, and other online sales platforms, with all orders fulfilled across all of your sales channels by the same dedicated fulfillment partner.
Outsourced FBM versus FBA
Outsourcing Amazon FBM doesn’t just sidestep the time and hassle of fulfilling orders yourself. It’s also a much better option than fulfillment by Amazon. With FBA, your stock has to meet strict receiving requirements with the right packaging and labelling for both specific items and full shipments.
Our Amazon FBA Prep services can make things easier when it comes to getting your goods into Amazon’s warehouse for FBA, by reworking and preparing your stock before forwarding it onto Amazon. In addition to polybagging, labelling and packaging products in line with Amazon’s requirements, we can help with kitting, bundling and custom wrapping.
Opting for Amazon fulfillment by merchant in Ireland through Autofulfil effectively cuts out the middleman. By shipping directly to your customers, we can pass several benefits onto you:
- Better pricing with Amazon continually increasing its FBA storage fees
- More flexibility when it comes to storage, shipping, and order volume scaling
- More customisation to improve the experience for your customers
- Better customer service – we’re rated 9.1 out of 10 for customer service
