FBA stands for Fulfillment By Amazon. Moreover, this means that you can pick products you want to sell on Amazon and partner with a fulfillment center that will do all of the heavy lifting by taking care of picking, packing, shipping, returns, and even customer service. The majority of these products are manufactured and held in Chinese fulfillment centers. This way of operating allows many entrepreneurs to start an online business. It takes away all the worry of inventory and logistics and lets you focus on developing your brand. While there are many benefits to following this popular business model, it comes with a certain amount of risk, just like any other business type.
So what does an FBA inspection cover anyway? Different inspection areas are depending on what part of the production and shipping process you want to analyze. Here are some things that quality inspectors look for when conducting their inspections. Assembly If your FBA-based business sells items that require assembly, you want to make sure your customers are getting all the pieces they need. Even if your products don’t need the customer to assemble them, you will want to verify that the actual manufacturing process is safe and compliant. Packaging You want to get your packaging inspected to ensure your products can safely travel around the globe without getting damaged. This process includes conducting drop tests, checking for retail packaging, and checking durability for liquid and fragile items. Labeling and Barcodes Quality assurance guarantees your packages are all labeled correctly. Without properly labeled and barcoded packages, your entire shipping process will come to a screeching halt. Failure to comply with this step can prevent your customers from even getting their order, and an FBA inspection can ensure everything is correct.
