These days, Amazon seller and Amazon FBA have been a heated trend. Under the epidemic of COVID-19, more and more people choose to be an Amazon seller. And FBA stands for “Fulfillment by Amazon”, which means Amazon looks after all of the seller’s stock. In this way, sellers just have to source profitable products and ship them to FBA warehouse. Then Amazon would take care of the rest, like product delivery to customers and other customer services.
In this article, we are not telling you how to start being an Amazon FBA seller, but how agent companies help with Amazon FBA sellers. And we will talk about the following tips with a real case study, more vivid. Let’s get it started.
This is what most agents will do for customers—-to help to source profitable products. Once the seller send us their requirements, such as dimensions, material, packing and labeling and so on, our agents will help to source the products for sellers. After our agents sourcing the products, they will send photography and details of products to sellers for further confirmation if they need samples shipping to them.
Here comes the real story. Jackson is one of our customer who deals with chair mats. This time, he is going to order some PVC chair mats. This routine is simple. Our agents find a suitable factory for him and inspect the sample quality on his behalf. And then after his confirmation, ship the sample to him.

Confirming the quality of samples, we are moving on the next step—-mass production. And the most essential and unique service we will offer is Quality Inspection. This process should be done after the mass production but before the shipment. You don’t want your products to be fount out bad in your FBA warehouse, which just waste your time and money. Therefore, a full quality inspection before shipment is rather essential. And MySourcify here offer Piece-by-Piece Quality Inspection, which guarantees that no defective products would be contained in it.
Here is the quality report we made for Jackson.
The packing and labeling is done after quality inspection is done. Something important for FBA sellers is that Amazon FBA warehouse only accept products with its own shipping labels. It will need the sellers to apply for this label on Amazon. Only in this way can your products be directly shipped to a FBA warehouse. Here is a guide article for your reference on how to apply for a shipping label of Amazon FBA: Step By Step Guide to Shipping To An Amazon Warehouse.
The shipping label needs to be labeled on the package, while another important label called barcode needs to be labeled on your products. Common mistakes you need to avoid when shipping are:
- No label: Amazon are fairly strict with label. Lack of label may lead to package rejecting.
- Mislabel: This means you need to ensure that the product content matches every detail of the product label. Otherwise, your package can be rejected.
- Unreadable label: This means when labeling your package, make sure that all the labels are displayed on a flat edge of the box, with no wrinkles.
