without doubt,Amazon FBAIs the majorityAmazon SellerBut if the seller sells small and cheap productsFBA feeIt is easy to erode the seller's profits. These sellers can considerFBA Small and LightPlan.
Blue Ocean Yiguan has learned that,FBA Small and Light（Amazon Light Commodities Program）Its key advantage is that it reduces the seller's cost of completing the order, as well as other benefits.
1、 Advantages of Amazon's light commodity program
oneCan save freight
Paying lower logistics costs is one of the biggest advantages of registering Small and Light.
Let's assume that the seller is selling a 2.32 ounce pop up card wallet. According to the above table, the seller will pay $2.50 per unitFBADelivery, but FBA Small and Light only costs $1.97.
Although it doesn't look like much, if the seller sells 1000 pieces a month, FBA Small and Light can help the seller save 530 dollars.
twoThis product will become Prime product
According to Amazon, products that join FBA Small and Light will havePrimeQualification, which means that the seller's goods will have a Prime member badge.
Amazon Prime members are mostly very active shoppers. However, the problem is that Prime customers will actually enjoy free delivery service within 3 to 5 working days, rather than 2 days (2-day guarantee), so this "advantage" may do more harm than good.
For non Prime customers, they will receive free standard delivery service within 6 to 8 working days.
threeNo minimum order quantity required
Another advantage is that customers do not need to meet any minimum purchase requirements. For example, standard FBA requires customers to order qualified products for $25 or more to obtain free delivery service.
Amazon also terminated the add on item function, so customers can now buy the seller's small and light products themselves, not just add ons (attachments) or afterthoughts (afterthoughts).
According to Ecomcrew, FBA's Multi Channel Fulfillment（MCF）Now available for Small and Light mini plans.
Therefore, if the seller is alsoWal-Mart、ShopifyOr other platforms, you no longer need to ship products from other places. Just pay attention to the corresponding costs.
