How to calculate the cost of Amazon FBA head trip?Amazon's operations include two major models, namely Amazon (FBM) self-delivery model and Amazon (FBA) Amazon delivery model.
Self-delivery means that Amazon only serves as a sales platform and is the seller's own source of goods. After a customer places an order in the store, it will be delivered to foreign customers by international express package.
Advantages: low investment, you can wait until the order is issued before purchasing, packaging and distribution are operated by yourself, and it is directly facing customers, which makes it easier to build a good brand. The category is wider, and some categories and products do not support FBA logistics (large items), and only self-delivery can be done.
Disadvantages: The timeliness is slow, and the order volume is slightly less than that of the FBA model. FBM is similar to domestic Taobao stores. Sellers open a store on it, and when someone places an order, they can deliver the goods according to the address. Click here to consult Aotong Cross-border Logistics!
The Amazon (FBA) distribution mode refers to the delivery of goods to Amazon's FBA warehouse in advance, and then after someone places an order, the Amazon warehouse will deliver the goods to the buyer.
Advantages: Fast delivery. Amazon will have traffic support, which is much higher than the exposure of FBM. Returns and exchanges do not require the consent of the seller, and are handled directly by Amazon customer service, so most people prefer FBA products.
Disadvantages: The operating cost is much higher than that of FBM, and storage fees need to be paid every month (calculated according to the product volume). If the product cannot be sold, you will need to pay continuous storage fees.
The meaning of FBA header:
The Amazon FBA first journey refers to a transportation process of goods from the factory to the destination Amazon warehouse, including customs clearance and prepaid tariffs and other services. Because Amazon has FBA warehouses all over the world, through air, express, rail, sea and other transportation methods, the goods of cross-border sellers are transported from the local area to Amazon warehouses designated by Canada, Japan, Germany, the United States, France, the United Kingdom and other countries. , that is, the journey before the goods are delivered to the Amazon warehouse is collectively referred to as the Amazon first journey.
The specific cost is calculated as follows:
Actual weight (kg) = unit basic freight (TNE) x total gross weight (KGM) actual weight (kg) = total freight + (total weight KG x 2-1 first weight) x additional freight volume weight (kg) = goods Volume (CBM) X167 kg volume weight (kg) = length (CM) X width (CM) X height (CM) / 6000
Amazon FBA will charge the higher of the two fees, that is to say, if your volume weight shipping fee is higher, the volume weight shipping fee will be charged.
