I received below call for assistance from Claire based in UK regarding Amazon FBA shipments that she wants to make from China to USA..
Since I have no idea about the processes and procedures involved with shipments to Amazon, I thought to post the question(s) here, so someone who probably has some info can assist..
We’ve in the process of setting up an Amazon seller account and are looking to import low-weight kitchen items, initially 500 units or pieces.
Our company would like to run an initial launch to test market response to our product/brand, hence the initial smaller consignment.
We’re struggling to keep up with all the costs, acronyms and process to send 500 units via a Chinese manufacturer to Ningbo, then Ningbo via Air Freight to Amazon FBA inspection site, in Fort Bragg, California.
There are also certain criteria Amazon require for products to pass inspection and then process onto Amazon’s warehouse/s for resale.
Do you have any advice or guidance you can offer for Chinese Manufacturers through to Amazon inspection and subsequent resale?
