Amazon is the perfect site for sellers of all sizes to sell their products. With so much competition, sellers have to be smart. Amazon’s fulfilled by Amazon (FBA) program was designed to handle the logistical process for sellers. Any product that is sold as a “Prime” item is an FBA item.

FBA involves sellers sending their products to an Amazon warehouse. When Amazon receives your products, they take the liberty of storing, packing, and shipping your products out, taking the workload off your shoulders. Plus, customers have peace of mind that their shipment is in good hands.

However, FBA does come with additional fees. FBA fees are complex and apply differently based on shipment size, weight, item type, storage duration, account type, and other factors. FBA also doesn’t guarantee sales, so solid business decisions when it comes to picking products and pricing are still vital.

If FBA sounds interesting to you, consider using an online market research tool to help you navigate the fees. Algopix has an Amazon fee calculator that provides you with a detailed breakdown of your estimated FBA fees, helping you identify profitable opportunities for your business.
