Levels of prep

The level of prep that is required varies, based on characteristics of your product.

Reception with inspection

Reception with inspection is part of basic preparation services; your shipment is received, individual items are counted, and verified for damage, and your shipment is prepared for shipping to Amazon.  The service is based on a cost per carton received/shipped, and a cost per item inspected.  Applying of FNSKU labels is included in the cost of inspection of individual items.

This level of prep is desirable if your product needs labeling, can be damaged, or if you want to verify that all units were shipped.

Reception without inspection

Also part of basic preparation services, reception without inspection is a lower cost alternative. Your shipment is received, and prepared for shipping to Amazon.  The service is based on a cost per carton received/shipped.

This level of prep is desirable if your product does not need labeling, is unlikely to be damaged, and if you trust that all units were shipped.

Bagging or bundling

Bagging or bundling is part of our enhanced preparation services, and add to reception with inspection. The service is based on the dimensions, and level of work required by your product.

This level of prep is desirable if your product comes as individual components, need to be protected from dirt, or is a collectible.

Country of origin determination

If you are exporting products to another Amazon market, we also offer country of origin determination as part of our enhanced services. The service is based on the number of individual SKUs, not individual items.

This level of prep is desirable if your product transits to other Amazon markets (.com, .uk, etc.) but has not been in your possession before reaching us.
