eFulfillment Service announced new pricing for its Fulfillment by Amazon Prep Service today and opens the option to the marketplace, allowing clients and non-clients alike to use the service to replenish Amazon’s inventory as needed, meet Amazon’s labeling requirements and avoid Amazon’s penalty charges.
“Our new pricing is simple, predictable and designed to meet the needs of the marketplace,” says John Lindberg, owner and president of eFulfillment Service (EFS), a family-owned business, operating since 2001. “We’ve been providing Fulfillment by Amazon Prep Services to clients for several years, helping those clients with Amazon’s regulations for shipping, carton labels, and inventory labels. Our new pricing makes it even easier for our clients.”
EFS is now offering Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) Prep as a stand-alone service. Previously, FBA Prep services were bundled with other fulfillment services. All clients will pay per unit for FBA Prep services, and fair, straightforward pricing for storage. In addition, all EFS clients benefit from these EFS policies:
- No setup fees
- No long-term storage fees
- No hidden or tricky penalties or fees
- No minimum order volume requirements
- No long-term contracts
“FBA Prep by eFulfillment Service helped us keep our Amazon Prime status and reduce our escalating inventory costs. It’s the best of both worlds.” says Dr. Unoma Okorafor, Herbal Goodness, http://www.HerbalPapaya.com
EFS’s FBA Prep Services help sellers with slower-moving products, avoid up to $16+ per cu. ft. per month of penalty fees from Amazon. Sellers want to use FBA, because it’s the easiest way to qualify for Prime status, a preferred designation on the Amazon website. Products that are designated Prime get more visibility on the website, and higher sales from 101 million U.S. Prime members, who get two-day shipping at no additional cost.
By replenishing a seller’s Amazon inventory as needed, EFS helps the seller avoid these penalty fees:
- Excess Inventory Fees: Amazon requires sellers have just enough inventory stored at Amazon to respond to orders. Storage of inventory over Amazon’s limit can cost an additional $10 per cubic foot.
- Long-term Storage Fees: Any inventory that has been on Amazon shelves for 365 days can cost an additional $6.90 per cubic foot on top of its normal storage fees (and excess inventory fees).
Additionally, most EFS clients sell on other platforms, like eBay, Walmart or the clients’ websites, so EFS seamlessly packs and ships those orders directly to consumers, maintaining inventory control across every channel, including Amazon.
“Generally, any company with more than a pallet or two of inventory is going to save using eFulfillment Service’s FBA Prep Service,” says Lindberg. “And with our responsive Customer Care team, the whole process will be transparent and predictable when you work with us.”
