Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) is a fulfilment service where Amazon take care of storing, packing and shipping your products as well as handling customer support and returns.
To avoid Amazon’s sky-high handling and storage fees, you can store your goods with Complete Packaging and call it off from our fulfilment centre when needed.
Our inventory management system connects to all Amazon Seller & Vendor Central portals, meaning we can receive and action orders directly from Amazon. These will then be prepared and shipped within 24 hours meaning you never have to worry about chargebacks.
How is FBA different from FBM?
FBM (Fulfilled by Merchant) is where you store, ship and process your returns through a 3rd party location such as Complete Packaging’s Fulfilment Centre.
As well as dodging Amazon’s storage & handling fees, you’ll also maintain complete control of your stock and base level costs.
As well as FBA, this is also a service that Complete Packaging offer.
What Is A Chargeback?
A chargeback is a penalty that Amazon Vendors receive for not adhering to Amazon's rules and regulations.
It is crucial for vendors to ensure compliance with Amazon's guidelines to avoid these charges and maintain profitability, we help ensure that you are complaint to avoid uneccessary chargebacks.

Bespoke packaging for Amazon
Being an FBA seller can be a minefield, and whist it has the ability to give your brand excellent exposure and dramatically increase your sales, it can become very expensive for the sellers if Amazon begin to impose additional fees.
Complete Packaging help to minimise this as much as possible – receiving orders directly from Amazon, we help to keep Amazon stocked up at all times meaning less reasons to receive chargebacks.
The stock we send into Amazon can be pre prepped with us too, meaning what Amazon receive is ready to sell straight away.
