Hi,

 

I ma interested in using Amazon MFC to cut the storage and high shipping costs that I'm currently paying in Germany. I wanted to ask if anyone has MFC experience in Germany and share with me some knowledge about the costs, such as how much does Amazon charge for the storage and the fulfilment costs per shipment my I sell snacks.. usually orders are about 1-3 kg and come in shoe box size

Here's a link to the info for Germany + fees: https://sell.amazon.de/en/versand-durch-amazon/multi-channel-versand

 

This might also help for fee calculation if you are already listing on Amazon: https://sellercentral.amazon.com/fba/profitabilitycalculator/index

 

I used to sell in Amazon Germany, UK, and USA. Was nice we were actually surprised by the Amazon Germany market success. We used inventory there to ship Shopify orders in Germany (I used to manage a Shopify store).

 

If you want to automatically fulfill your Shopify orders using your Amazon FBA inventory, Order Automator does that and can handle any marketplace + multiple marketplaces if you want to route orders to different Amazon countries.

Hi @JoesIdeas thanks a lot for your reply. So just to be sure, it is possible to use Amazon only for the fulfilment ? meaning that I will not have the products listed (I also sell items on AMZ, but different ones). 

 

I want to use Amazon only as a 3PL. Meaning that orders that will come from my store will be fulfilled by Amazon automatically, without having to register the product on Amazon.

I think so, I would double check with Amazon but it seems like you could just not have the products published on Amazon, and then still pull inventory from them.
