The Amazon marketplace accounts for billions of dollars in sales every year, and is an important sales channel for many brands. Many of these brands rely on Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), which makes them eligible for Prime delivery and offers other benefits to those that sell on the marketplace.
Though often necessary, FBA can also be expensive, and subjects merchants to the limitations of the service, including capacity limits and expensive inventory and long term storage fees. Seasonal merchandise often doesn’t meet yearly capacity requirements, and FBA refuses all mentable inventory for more than half the year. These fees and limitations can often push ecommerce brands to seek out Amazon FBA alternatives.
