Manage your Amazon FBA Shipping and Receiving Easily

Amazon MWS Receiving

Automation services (custom-programming) can integrate your Inventory Management System with your FBA Inventory at Amazon. You can track your Inventory in Seller Central, or we can bring the information to your desktop through custom programming using Amazon’s MWS Services.

Shipping Inventory to Amazon's Fulfillment Network

There are several steps as defined by Amazon to ship inventory to their fulfillment network. Once in the fulfillment network, a seller’s items can be used to fulfill orders on Amazon’s retail website or through other sales channels.  Here are the recommended steps – which is a tedious process. Custom software, using the Amazon MWS APIs, can streamline and automate these tasks.

  • Create a listing and convert it to FBA
  • Create an Inbound Shipment Plan
  • Prepare your items for shipping
  • Create an Inbound Shipment in the Amazon FBA system
  • Work with your Amazon-partnered carrier for shipment (optional)
  • Send tracking info to Amazon
  • Submit packing lists and carton content information
  • Request shipping labels for your inbound shipment
  • Request pallet labels or bills of lading
  • Physically send the items to the Amazon Fulfillment Network
  • Mark your shipments as “Shipped”

We can use the functions described below for Products and Inventory Control, in programs for you, to provide all of the functionality you need to run your business.
