Online selling has enabled small businesses to reach out to more global customers than ever before. Selling to an Amazon customer in Australia isn’t difficult, even if your warehouse is halfway across the planet.

If you are interested in shipping to Amazon AU, you will need to follow the same steps for any FBA shipment. These include:

  • Providing a merchant SKU
  • All products need a scannable barcode (UPC/EAN/ISBN)
  • Product condition
  • Total quantity
  • Packing option (single, set, case, and other formats)
  • Packages must follow Amazon’s standards for FBA intake shipments

The Amazon FBA program is designed to standardize the logistics process across most of Amazon’s marketplaces. There are a few things you will need to consider when selling internationally instead of within your domestic borders. Sellers should expect to pay higher shipping expenses and additional taxes and import fees.

You will also want to understand how the market for the product differs in another country. Some products may have higher demand in a specific country and you have the opportunity to charge extra.

Studying differences in market dynamics is the key to making good business decisions regarding foreign sales. You should try an Amazon product research tool like Algopix to help you determine the viability of any products you are looking to sell within Australia.
