How To Ship Private Label Products to Amazon

Shipping to Amazon seems to be a constant source of confusion for many new Amazon sellers. I created this walk through to show you how to create a shipping plan to get your private label products to the Amazon warehouse.

Due to the fact that I’m using my live listing, I have blurred out large portions of the screen, but everything you need to know is visible. Thanks for understanding.

that you’re sending your stuff in so

19
00:00:38,760 –> 00:00:44,010
they’re on the lookout for it first

20
00:00:42,570 –> 00:00:46,200
thing you’re going to do is go to seller

21
00:00:44,010 –> 00:00:47,969
central and log into your account and

22
00:00:46,200 –> 00:00:49,350
again guys don’t let your inventory go

23
00:00:47,969 –> 00:00:51,360
out of stock once you start selling it

24
00:00:49,350 –> 00:00:53,579
is a bear to get that sales velocity

25
00:00:51,360 –> 00:00:55,379
back what we’re going to do though to

26
00:00:53,579 –> 00:00:56,789
set up our shipping plan to send in more

27
00:00:55,379 –> 00:00:59,730
inventory is we’re going to go to

28
00:00:56,789 –> 00:01:02,640
inventory and then come down to manage

29
00:00:59,730 –> 00:01:04,350
FBA inventory I’m going to click here to

30
00:01:02,640 –> 00:01:06,810
indicate the product I want and then

31
00:01:04,350 –> 00:01:13,170
from action on one selected i am going

32
00:01:06,810 –> 00:01:14,670
to sis a sin replenish inventory now

33
00:01:13,170 –> 00:01:17,009
because I’ve done this before I’ve got

34
00:01:14,670 –> 00:01:19,530
some information already in here like my

35
00:01:17,009 –> 00:01:21,750
ship from address that is just my home

36
00:01:19,530 –> 00:01:24,630
address because i have my inventory ship

37
00:01:21,750 –> 00:01:27,689
from china here to my house and and just

38
00:01:24,630 –> 00:01:31,320
sending in five boxes at a time 10 units

39
00:01:27,689 –> 00:01:34,229
50 units at a time as my inventory gets

40
00:01:31,320 –> 00:01:36,450
low and so because i am doing private

41
00:01:34,229 –> 00:01:39,689
label and all my units are the same i’m

42
00:01:36,450 –> 00:01:41,400
going to choose case packed products so

43
00:01:39,689 –> 00:01:43,350
that means everything that’s in the box

44
00:01:41,400 –> 00:01:45,930
that means everything that’s in the box

45
00:01:43,350 –> 00:01:47,640
is the same thing if I was doing retail

46
00:01:45,930 –> 00:01:49,860
arbitrage and I was sending you know

47
00:01:47,640 –> 00:01:51,930
five units of a book and like five pairs

48
00:01:49,860 –> 00:01:54,180
of shoes and then three toys and

49
00:01:51,930 –> 00:01:55,590
whatever then you would do individual

50
00:01:54,180 –> 00:01:57,299
products and that’s a whole different

51
00:01:55,590 –> 00:01:59,070
ball of wax set I’m not going to cover

52
00:01:57,299 –> 00:02:00,570
here today never done it so i wouldn’t

53
00:01:59,070 –> 00:02:02,369
want to steer you wrong wit k spy

54
00:02:00,570 –> 00:02:04,140
products mean everything is the same if

55
00:02:02,369 –> 00:02:05,610
you have questions of course you can

56
00:02:04,140 –> 00:02:07,049
always click on the links are pretty

57
00:02:05,610 –> 00:02:10,110
helpful and they do a good job walking

58
00:02:07,049 –> 00:02:11,730
you through what you need to do for the

59
00:02:10,110 –> 00:02:14,010
different types of product packaging

60
00:02:11,730 –> 00:02:16,230
that you get now this is an important

61
00:02:14,010 –> 00:02:17,970
part of the process because you’ve got

62
00:02:16,230 –> 00:02:20,489
to make sure that you’ve got the right

63
00:02:17,970 –> 00:02:22,890
information over here you need to make

64
00:02:20,489 –> 00:02:24,780
sure that each unit per case is the same

65
00:02:22,890 –> 00:02:26,099
otherwise I don’t know how you do it

66
00:02:24,780 –> 00:02:28,260
this isn’t going to work but if you have

67
00:02:26,099 –> 00:02:30,599
for some reason like I have one box that

68
00:02:28,260 –> 00:02:32,790
i took a unit out of so it only has nine

69
00:02:30,599 –> 00:02:34,440
because I send that off to get pictures

70
00:02:32,790 –> 00:02:36,120
taken obviously the guys torn out of the

71
00:02:34,440 –> 00:02:37,980
package it’s not going to go back in

72
00:02:36,120 –> 00:02:41,790
well so i’m just going to write those

73
00:02:37,980 –> 00:02:43,829
off that when i would send i would just

74
00:02:41,790 –> 00:02:45,689
send it on its own shipment so that i

75
00:02:43,829 –> 00:02:48,450
was just sending one case with nine

76
00:02:45,689 –> 00:02:50,250
units instead of four cases with ten

77
00:02:48,450 –> 00:02:51,840
units and one of nine does that make

78
00:02:50,250 –> 00:02:54,480
does that make sense just try and keep

79
00:02:51,840 –> 00:02:57,870
all of your units per case the same so

80
00:02:54,480 –> 00:02:59,430
in this example for my product I have 10

81
00:02:57,870 –> 00:03:01,980
units per case and I’m going to send

82
00:02:59,430 –> 00:03:05,430
five so we’re going to send a total of

83
00:03:01,980 –> 00:03:07,349
fifty units we’re going to hit continue

84
00:03:05,430 –> 00:03:09,720
because that is correct now you’re going

85
00:03:07,349 –> 00:03:12,090
to be asked for prep guidance anything

86
00:03:09,720 –> 00:03:13,650
that you can prep yourself obviously is

87
00:03:12,090 –> 00:03:15,269
going to save you money but you do have

88
00:03:13,650 –> 00:03:18,030
the option of if you have a unit that

89
00:03:15,269 –> 00:03:22,069
needs something specific done to an

90
00:03:18,030 –> 00:03:22,069
Amazon will do it but for a fee

91
00:03:26,450 –> 00:03:30,920
the next page is about labeling now if

92
00:03:29,180 –> 00:03:33,410
you guys remember back to a previous

93
00:03:30,920 –> 00:03:35,510
video I did about mistakes I made on

94
00:03:33,410 –> 00:03:37,970
getting started selling on Amazon then

95
00:03:35,510 –> 00:03:40,519
you recall that I did not have my FN sku

96
00:03:37,970 –> 00:03:43,160
added to my product labeling which was a

97
00:03:40,519 –> 00:03:45,230
bad idea but that is why you will see

98
00:03:43,160 –> 00:03:47,450
that i have four under labeling required

99
00:03:45,230 –> 00:03:50,540
and who labels amazon and so i’m getting

100
00:03:47,450 –> 00:03:53,480
charged ten dollars for amazon to apply

101
00:03:50,540 –> 00:03:55,849
those FNS k use for me if I could do it

102
00:03:53,480 –> 00:03:57,530
myself the chance I could do it myself

103
00:03:55,849 –> 00:03:59,090
and I don’t think I have the right

104
00:03:57,530 –> 00:04:00,590
equipment to do it then I would do it

105
00:03:59,090 –> 00:04:02,420
save that ten dollars but that’s why

106
00:04:00,590 –> 00:04:05,720
you’ll see here amazon if you have your

107
00:04:02,420 –> 00:04:07,459
SN sku on the product then you don’t

108
00:04:05,720 –> 00:04:09,920
have to have it set up this way which is

109
00:04:07,459 –> 00:04:11,420
good news so we’re just going to hit

110
00:04:09,920 –> 00:04:13,430
continue we’re going to review our

111
00:04:11,420 –> 00:04:16,340
shipment now i think i’m getting a

112
00:04:13,430 –> 00:04:18,650
little bit lucky here because they’re

113
00:04:16,340 –> 00:04:21,799
actually sending all five cases to the

114
00:04:18,650 –> 00:04:23,510
same location and Charlotte a lot of

115
00:04:21,799 –> 00:04:26,030
times what happens is that you have to

116
00:04:23,510 –> 00:04:28,220
individually send your units two

117
00:04:26,030 –> 00:04:29,840
different fulfillment center so you

118
00:04:28,220 –> 00:04:33,590
might be sending to Pennsylvania and

119
00:04:29,840 –> 00:04:35,900
Charlotte and Texas and California all

120
00:04:33,590 –> 00:04:38,479
out of the same batch of products you

121
00:04:35,900 –> 00:04:41,150
want to ship of it but I can’t make

122
00:04:38,479 –> 00:04:44,510
heads or tails of which way it goes and

123
00:04:41,150 –> 00:04:46,190
why I it’s kind of a weird thing but

124
00:04:44,510 –> 00:04:47,960
when I get where i can ship everything

125
00:04:46,190 –> 00:04:50,180
to the same place and that makes me

126
00:04:47,960 –> 00:04:52,280
actually pretty happy so i’m going to go

127
00:04:50,180 –> 00:04:54,950
ahead and approve the shipment and then

128
00:04:52,280 –> 00:04:57,680
we’ll see how much it’s going to cost so

129
00:04:54,950 –> 00:05:01,970
here we have got our shipment created

130
00:04:57,680 –> 00:05:03,590
and we are going to work on shipment now

131
00:05:01,970 –> 00:05:05,570
here are me s to review my shipment

132
00:05:03,590 –> 00:05:07,580
contents so as you can see here there’s

133
00:05:05,570 –> 00:05:09,380
a couple of different options here small

134
00:05:07,580 –> 00:05:12,950
parcel delivery less-than-truckload

135
00:05:09,380 –> 00:05:14,150
which i’m going to do small parcel

136
00:05:12,950 –> 00:05:17,330
delivery because i am shipping

137
00:05:14,150 –> 00:05:20,780
individual boxes i understand that if

138
00:05:17,330 –> 00:05:22,610
you can ship in pallets that that will

139
00:05:20,780 –> 00:05:24,139
save you quite a bit of money but i’m

140
00:05:22,610 –> 00:05:28,130
just not there i don’t know if my whole

141
00:05:24,139 –> 00:05:29,599
shipment that i have is 150 pounds now i

142
00:05:28,130 –> 00:05:31,460
understand if you can do this

143
00:05:29,599 –> 00:05:32,960
less-than-truckload that it can save you

144
00:05:31,460 –> 00:05:34,669
quite a bit of money if you’re shipping

145
00:05:32,960 –> 00:05:36,919
enough to make up a palette but i’m not

146
00:05:34,669 –> 00:05:38,000
so that’s not even an option for me not

147
00:05:36,919 –> 00:05:40,040
going to worry about it just going to

148
00:05:38,000 –> 00:05:43,220
stick with individual boxes

149
00:05:40,040 –> 00:05:45,590
I understand UPS is the most deeply

150
00:05:43,220 –> 00:05:47,330
discounted carrier so we’re going to go

151
00:05:45,590 –> 00:05:49,850
with them also how will this shouldn’t

152
00:05:47,330 –> 00:05:51,620
it be packed everything is in one box or

153
00:05:49,850 –> 00:05:53,660
multiple boxes in this case for shipping

154
00:05:51,620 –> 00:05:55,190
five now this is kind of funny to me

155
00:05:53,660 –> 00:05:57,050
because it’s like you know what I

156
00:05:55,190 –> 00:05:59,240
already told you that in a previous

157
00:05:57,050 –> 00:06:01,490
screen but they asked for it again so

158
00:05:59,240 –> 00:06:04,280
we’re just going to give them the

159
00:06:01,490 –> 00:06:06,860
information they want shipment quantity

160
00:06:04,280 –> 00:06:08,360
is 50 units per box configuration this

161
00:06:06,860 –> 00:06:09,710
is what i’m telling you we already did

162
00:06:08,360 –> 00:06:12,920
this but we’re just going to do it again

163
00:06:09,710 –> 00:06:14,420
total box weight is 19 pounds and my box

164
00:06:12,920 –> 00:06:15,830
dimensions are hold on I’ve got this

165
00:06:14,420 –> 00:06:17,870
written down somewhere let me go find it

166
00:06:15,830 –> 00:06:19,910
in my box dimensions are 15 and a half

167
00:06:17,870 –> 00:06:22,880
inches by 15 and a half inches by 9

168
00:06:19,910 –> 00:06:25,370
inches so once I verified that that’s

169
00:06:22,880 –> 00:06:27,380
all right I’m going to hit confirm so as

170
00:06:25,370 –> 00:06:32,360
my box information has been successfully

171
00:06:27,380 –> 00:06:33,740
submitted next step you’re responsible

172
00:06:32,360 –> 00:06:35,540
for writing accurate shipment

173
00:06:33,740 –> 00:06:37,880
information in the accurate call so guys

174
00:06:35,540 –> 00:06:39,770
do not try and find your numbers just

175
00:06:37,880 –> 00:06:41,030
tell them what it is we’re going to go

176
00:06:39,770 –> 00:06:43,130
ahead and calculate our shipping cost

177
00:06:41,030 –> 00:06:46,100
twenty nine dollars and seventeen cents

178
00:06:43,130 –> 00:06:48,950
so as you can imagine that is showing

179
00:06:46,100 –> 00:06:51,410
that that’s pretty cheap for sending

180
00:06:48,950 –> 00:06:53,600
almost 100 pounds of product it’s not

181
00:06:51,410 –> 00:06:55,490
bad it’s not bad at all and a good thing

182
00:06:53,600 –> 00:06:56,900
here is you do have a day to change your

183
00:06:55,490 –> 00:07:00,230
mind if you want but I’m just going to

184
00:06:56,900 –> 00:07:01,760
go ahead and go ahead and shoot these in

185
00:07:00,230 –> 00:07:03,980
get them out of the house that’ll be

186
00:07:01,760 –> 00:07:06,050
just fine going to print box labels now

187
00:07:03,980 –> 00:07:08,330
and an important thing to remember when

188
00:07:06,050 –> 00:07:10,220
you’re printing these box labels is like

189
00:07:08,330 –> 00:07:12,020
in this case I have five boxes it’s

190
00:07:10,220 –> 00:07:15,350
going to give me five labels and I need

191
00:07:12,020 –> 00:07:16,820
to ship 5 or I need to rather print five

192
00:07:15,350 –> 00:07:20,450
labels because each one is different

193
00:07:16,820 –> 00:07:21,830
print it out those five shipping labels

194
00:07:20,450 –> 00:07:23,540
and now we’re just going to go to

195
00:07:21,830 –> 00:07:26,000
complete shipment so now you can see I

196
00:07:23,540 –> 00:07:28,280
have five ship boxes yours and I wait my

197
00:07:26,000 –> 00:07:30,440
dimensions on all the boxes tracking

198
00:07:28,280 –> 00:07:32,990
numbers all that good stuff so we will

199
00:07:30,440 –> 00:07:34,670

200
00:07:32,990 –> 00:07:37,610

207
00:07:47,480 –> 00:07:51,200
how you create a shipping plan if you

208
00:07:49,550 –> 00:07:53,200

209
00:07:51,200 –> 00:07:55,270
everything in the box is

210
00:07:53,200 –> 00:07:57,970
same obviously there’s some variations

211
00:07:55,270 –> 00:07:59,890
there but Amazon I think on this item at

212
00:07:57,970 –> 00:08:02,830
