Amazon created the supply chain connect feature to allow you to provide access to your FBA shipments. This allows you to simply log in to Amazon seller central, create an FBA shipment and click on ‘share shipment’ instead of constant back-and-forth emails with suppliers about shipment sizes, delivery dates, weights, etc.

Once your FBA shipment is ready, click on ‘share shipment,’ and commit a supplier, after which they’ll access their own portal to check destinations and create shipping labels (once the labels are created, sellers can check up the status of the shipment in the Seller Central.)  In addition, the supplier will be able to see details such as shipping methods & guidelines, ASIN inventory, seller notes, FBA shipment processing tips and more. Once your shipments are ready, your supplier will receive an email alert.   Of course, it’s your responsibility to make sure the suppliers are reliable, know how to complete the rest of the shipping details on their own and follow the Amazon guidelines: in the end, you will be responsible for any errors in the shipment, once it arrives at its warehouse.
