Amazon marketplace is currently the best platform for sellers. With its flexible plans, user-friendly interface, and easy to navigate the platform, you can quickly get started and start making sales almost instantly.

Amazon has over 2 million sellers worldwide, and the list of buyers is way beyond. Thus, currently, it is an excellent platform to showcase and sell your products without spending much on marketing and acquiring customers.

For sellers already selling on Amazon, you are aware of their seamless services. The only dilemma you face is which shipping and fulfillment model to chose to make sure your store doesn’t fall back.

Amazon offers the following shipping and fulfillment models

1) Fulfilled by Amazon(FBA)

You can stock your entire inventory at an Amazon fulfillment center or warehouse and ship with Amazon using FBA. Amazon packs, labels, and ships your orders directly to the customer.

2) Amazon Easy Ship

Using the Amazon Easy Ship service you can opt for shipping with Amazon. Ship via Amazon’s shipping network and manage your inventory yourself. This way, you handle orders, packaging, and labeling while Amazon assists you with shipping!

3) Amazon Self Ship

In this service, you are the master of your shipping. You only procure orders from Amazon, and the rest is your work! Pack, label and ship it your way with courier partner(s) of your choice.

As an independent seller who has not opted for FBA, your dilemma lies in choosing between Easy Ship and Self Ship.
