Transferring from Seller Central to Vendor Central
Though not applicable to every vendor, we are also experts in transferring successful third party (Seller Central) businesses to a direct relationship with Amazon Vendor Central. While selling through Seller Central can be a great start for a brand, vendors are ultimately limited to certain programs. The transfer process required to move over to a direct relationship is filled with potential pitfalls including issues related to inventory, page rank and losing sales momentum. We are extremely experienced in avoiding these pitfalls and ensuring that the transfer goes smoothly.
However, while we typically recommend a direct relationship, there are instances where it makes sense for a client to consider maintaining a presence on the 3P platform. We will look at your business holistically and based on your goals we will recommend the best model for continuing to successfully grow your business within the Amazon platform.
Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)
Fulfillment by Amazon is our recommended way to sell product through the Amazon third-party marketplace. This part of the business is still managed through Seller Central, however with FBA, Amazon handles all customer service and returns, keeping your team free to focus on other areas of your business. With FBA, your third-party listings are displayed with the Prime logo, so customers know that Amazon handles packing, delivery and these products will ship within their 2-day prime window, encouraging sales and growth. Fulfillment is greatly simplified from a standard Seller Central account, and there is no minimum in the number of units that can be sent into inventory. Depending on your goals, we will help determine if incorporating FBA is a strategic addition for your business needs on Amazon.
