When sellers send their inventory to FBA, it is not simply a case of throwing everything into a box and handing it over to a courier. There are in fact a number of strict rules that your stock must meet in order to be accepted at the Fulfillment Centre. Some of these rules apply to all inventory and others are category specific.
FBA prep is the process of getting your inventory ready to send into Amazon. It mainly focuses on the packaging and labelling of items but some sellers, especially those importing goods, also include an inspection of their inventory.
Getting your FBA prep right is hugely important. If you get it wrong, Amazon won’t accept your stock and you’ll have to pay to have it all returned. Worse still, if you send damaged stock into Amazon and it gets mistakenly sent to a customer, they are likely to complain and return the item. If these complaints start to stack up, it’s going to affect your metrics and see your listing suppressed, or even your account suspended.
