What are the advantages of using FBA Export with Amazon?
There are lot but the main benefit is being able to sell items internationally without the headaches of…..selling items internationally. 😂
Specifically, Amazon helps you identify which of your products are eligible, fulfills your international orders, handles import duty and customs clearance, and ships your product to the international buyer’s address all without you having to lift a finger.
So why not take the sale when you can?
What about international returns?
Amazon’s return policies are used to determine whether a unit is eligible to be returned.
Are there any product restrictions?
There are a few, but if you’re selling normal products you picked up doing retail arbitrage then most of those items should be eligible such as books, DVDs, CDs, toys, etc.
- Weapons and imitation weapons
- Plants, plant products, seeds, and soil
- Animals and certain animal products
- Surveillance equipment
- Laser pointers and related products
The nice thing is that Amazon will select which of your items are eligible for FBA Export and thus the outgoing and country specific incoming restrictions of products is not something you have to ever worry about.
