Merchants using Fulfillment by Amazon can reduce unforeseen costs and delays with FBA Prep services from Flowspace.

Certain products need additional prep before they can be packaged and shipped – fragile items, liquids, powders, sharps, even small items must be bagged, labeled and/or otherwise prepared for shipment. 

FBA fees do not cover the cost of preparation, and the price of using Amazon’s FBA Prep service can vary. Prep services are performed at Amazon’s sole discretion, resulting in unexpected charges and altered shipping windows, as unplanned preparation services can delay shipments by up to 48 hours.

FBA Prep with Flowspace ensures that your products are properly packaged and prepared for fulfillment, before they are inbound to Amazon. Correct packaging and prep helps to reduce delays in receiving time, protect your products while in Amazon fulfillment centers, and creates a better customer experience.

With the scale of the Flowspace Network, products can be prepared and stored at fulfillment centers across the country, speeding up replenishment and cutting down the amount of time goods need to be stored in expensive Amazon warehouses. 

Flowspace specializes in FBA Prep and can prepare products to any specification, including:

  • Loose products
  • Fragile products
  • Products sold as sets or bundles
  • Boxed units
  • Poly-bagged units
  • Bubble wrap
  • Case-packed products
  • ASIN or other labels
  • Much more
