What’s one of the best innovations for online shoppers in the past ten years?
The answer is Amazon Prime.
Amazon Prime is incredible.
If you ship your products to FBA, Amazon customers who have an Amazon Prime Membership can get your products with free, two-day shipping.
So, think about it. Your customer could wait 5-8 business days to get their order, or they could pay extra for shipping to get it there faster (I hate doing that). Don’t force your customers through the painful and expensive process of regular shipping.
Using FBA to Better Your Internet Business
Using Fulfillment by Amazon allows your items to qualify for Amazon Prime to the millions of shoppers on Amazon.
That means free, two-day shipping on the items you offer.
Amazon Prime can also work for you in another way.
If you order supplies for your business online (printers, toner, stationary, office supplies, etc.), Prime becomes very handy because you can let your fingers do the walking rather than spending time driving to one store, then another, and another.
Since your Prime account works for your household, you can also order personal items (with your personal credit card) and have the same benefit of the free, two-day shipping.
We ordered a some heavy equipment and got it with free shipping in two days. It weighed close to 90 pounds and shipped for free!
It also works out really well, when family member birthdays sneak up on you…
The Numbers are Staggering
The bottom line is that with over 60-80 Million Amazon prime subscribers, there’s a whole lot of customers that qualify for free, two-day shipping on items that ship from an Amazon warehouse.
Those customers want items fast and with free shipping.
Ease of ordering makes ordering easy.
Because so many Amazon customers qualify for free, two-day shipping, they’re looking for products that meet that criteria.
Imagine using Fulfillment by Amazon for your business and having your products offered with free, two-day shipping.
When customers are shopping other sites or looking at other sellers on Amazon that offer shipping times from 5-10 business days, it’s an easy choice given who to buy from: The merchants that offer free, and extremely fast shipping.
Setup isn’t complicated, and for pre-existing listings, it’s even easier.
With fulfillment centers all over the US, and now in multiple countries around the world, time has never been better to get started.
