Amazon launches fulfilment service in Australia

Businesses registered to sell on Amazon’s Australian Marketplace are now able to access Amazon’s logistics service, Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA).

Through the service, businesses send products to Amazon’s fulfilment centre and, when a customer places an order, Amazon’s fulfilment staff picks, packs and ships the product on behalf of the business, and handles customer service and returns.

Sellers are charged for storage space and the orders Amazon fulfils, while the cost of shipping is included in fees.

“Size doesn’t matter in the digital economy and Amazon Marketplace helps to level the playing field when it comes to starting or growing a business,” said Amit Mahto, Head of Fulfilment by Amazon – Australia. “We are focused on helping Australian businesses of all sizes succeed by inventing on their behalf and making our technology available to them, and FBA is a fantastic example of this.”

Customers purchasing items sold on Amazon’s Marketplace now have access to Amazon’s delivery offers that were previously only available on order direct from Amazon’s own stock, for example free delivery on eligible orders above $49, and other one-day expedited delivery in select areas across Australia.

Amazon noted that all FBA orders will be eligible for Prime delivery features, once the Prime service launches in mid-2018.
