You could be an eBay seller, but you can still rely on Amazon to fulfill your orders successfully. While it is true that eBay as one of the top marketplaces has its own means of order completion with its own set of benefits, choosing eBay FBA has its unique advantages that can often supersede the former. Quick, effective and effortless order completion has always been possible with FBA. This is followed by the advantage of being completely relieved of the hassles associated with storage, picking, packing, shipping etc. In short, scoring high reviews and ratings with FBA is a massive possibility.

On the flip side though, there are certain factors that may compel you to question the applicability of this format of fulfillment to your business. Here are some factors that you need to consider before choosing eBay FBA…

  • To begin with, FBA for eBay products can cause some significant drainage to your investments if especially of you are clueless about FBA fee calculations. Considering the fact that fees for different products are different based on factors like size, weight, delivery area etc. you need to enlighten yourself with the profitability of FBA in favor of your business before you go for the same.
  • Secondly, as far as your clients are concerned, there may be some confusion about them ordering from eBay but receiving an Amazon parcel instead. This is mainly because buyers are usually unaware of the intricacies of order completion in different marketplaces and are also rightfully justified in their lack of knowledge. This again can intrigue the buyers to check similar products in Amazon listing rather than approaching eBay for the same.
  • Thirdly, succeeding completely and all-inclusively in FBA for eBay calls for proper integration of the two platforms. Poor integration may lead eBay sellers to lose track of their products in Amazon warehouses which again can cause significant increase in storage bills especially for slow moving products. It is true that the layout of FBA is such that most sellers experience loss of control on their inventory on subscribing for the same. However, with proper integration, you can retain maximum control of your inventory eve over cross platform performance.
  • Besides this, while subscribing to FBA, eBay sellers must be very careful about coding every individual product flawlessly as well as fulfilling all other requirements that FBA may call for without errors. The rest is assured to fall in place by itself giving way to a hassle-free and productive route to order completion.
