What is the advantage of using FBA Prep TX?
Be hands off. Stay home and focus on buying profitable items. You buy the product and with a little magic, the items end up at Amazon for you to sell. No need to touch any of the physical inventory. Make money by using your brain (and wallet) and not your hands.
How can I save money by paying for prep?
Yes, it is cheaper to do it yourself. You can get away with minimal equipment and lots of time. Focus your time on growing your business. You can run your business from anywhere in the world. You will save hours of physical work, money on shipping supplies and time wasted on dropoff/pickup. One of the biggest savings is time. Sitting at home for 1-2 days waiting for a pallet to be picked up is a waste of your time.
Do these prices include shipping?
Our prep services do not include shipping. Shipping will be billed directly to your Amazon account.
How do you access our account?
We access your seller central account through a “sub account” (a limited access account setup by you). We will only have access to make shipments. If you use Inventory Lab, you will also create a sub account there which we will have limited access to make shipments.
Is it safe to give someone access to my account?
We will guide you through setting up sub accounts. These accounts are jailed and will only have access to create shipments. We will not have any access to areas such as your financials, inventory, pricing, etc.
What is your turn around time?
We do our best to get items ready for shipment within 24 hours of you creating a shipment. We do work some weekends if needed due to high volume of shipments but these items will not be picked up until the next business day (Monday).
Each shipment will be invoiced after the shipment is double checked and ready for shipment. After we receive payment for services, we schedule the pickup via Amazon Seller Central.
How long does it take for Amazon to receive the shipment?
Being surrounded by Amazon warehouses and distribution warehouses, we often see next day delivery to Amazon when using UPS. Monday-Wednesday UPS shipments are often starting to get into inventory before the weekend. LTL (pallets) are often picked up the next business day and delivered same business day (using Amazon LTL as the carrier). We are lucky to have Amazon as a carrier in our area for LTL pickup. Please note, that delivery vs. checked in can vary. Pallet deliveries often take longer for Amazon to check them in and process them compared to SPD (UPS deliveries).
We currently do not ship any hazmat items. Also, we do not handle items over Amazon's category: small oversize.
