If you engage the services of a customs broker or a freight forwarder to help you move inventory from one country to another, you must engage them directly. You must also directly make the arrangements for establishing the importer or exporter of record. Amazon cannot act in that capacity or make these arrangements for you.
yes it is ok to make the invoice without the freight charge, if you must do lower amount the total cargo value amount must be reasonable, it can’t be too low that would cause customs clearance problem,I always suggest client declare the true amount. I hope it helps. You can PM me for any further shipping questions, i handle FBA shipping.
US FBA Export is a program available through Fulfillment by Amazon FBA that can help you grow your international business. When you opt into FBA Export, your eligible products become available for export. When international customers place orders, Amazon picks, packs, and ships the product straight to the customer. At no additional cost, Amazon handles the complexity of shipping products internationally. Customers visiting Amazon.com can search, browse, and find your products. At checkout, the customer pays for the order, which includes international shipping, an import fee deposit (Duty), and the product cost. If a customer has any questions regarding the order, the customer can contact Amazon Customer Service. If the customer has returns, the customer can go through the normal returns process for Amazon, and Amazon Customer Service provides the return instructions. No extra fees will be charged to sellers.
When you expand your business to an Amazon marketplace outside your home country and fulfill with Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) or a third-party fulfillment provider, you’ll need to understand your obligations in the import/export process. Although you may want to handle some or all of these import/export steps yourself, it can be easier to hire a logistics provider such as a customs broker or a freight forwarder to handle the process for you. These providers may have the expertise and the time to make sure your inventory moves from one place to another in a timely and secure manner.
