Hi, I’m preparing my 1st PL product to sell on Amazon. Since I’m based outside of US, I have advised my Chinese supplier to ship it to Amazon through UPS service.

I understand that UPS is clearing the shipment by themselves but am I supposed to deal with any customs/import taxes? If so how am I going to do this as the shipment will be arranged by the manufacturer in China.

Have you ever come across this situation?

Don’t ship direct to Amazon! So many reasons not to. First of all though you’re telling your supplier where you sell, how many you sell, what listing you sell under the seller name you sell under, etc. so now what is stopping them from cutting you out once they see you’re a success selling that item on Amazon!? NOTHING! Now they’ll stop selling to you or even worse report you to Amazon for selling stuff without their approval and cut you out and then start selling that same item themselves ON the listing you made and became successful with! You never share your private label listings with people who will be in a position to eliminate you! They’ll never honor an NDA. Beyond the fact that you’re putting it in their hands and trusting not them fully to get product to Amazon in proper condition for selling. Have you ever seen how they ship stuff!? Have you ever seen the bags they call “poly bags!?” They use the cheapest packaging materials possible, leaving your products vulnerable and exposed and ready to fall out of the bags they put them in and you left with tons of returns or even WORSE Amazon will turn down your shipment and send it back at YOUR expense!!

I repeat, do NOT ship direct to Amazon! If you want a less expensive alternative than FBAforward then contact my company as we have began to offer fulfillment services and FBA prep services for this very reason (for air shipments only at this point). So email me at amonfet@gmail.com to discuss and get rate information. We are less expensive than other services out there though and can ensure your products get to Amazon professionally and without the direct competition from Chinese suppliers. It has become so bad of an issue that I’m now recommending you do all your labeling stateside now as well!
