What is Send To Amazon? – New Amazon FBA Shipping Feature

What is Send To Amazon? – New Amazon FBA Shipping Feature Amazon has recently released a new method of sending FBA inventory to Amazon. Benefits
  • FBA Inventory Selection  – All of the listings that are FBA are listed in this new feature and sellers will be able to choose which product they will be adding to the shipment. Previously, the seller would have to scroll through there catalog and manually check each box before selecting “Send/Replenish Inventory”. This slow process made shipment creation tidious. With this new UI sellers can select and deselect product on the fly.
  • Packing Templates – This new feature allows sellers to create packing templates for case-packed products. Sellers will be able to save box unit count, dimensions, and prep type for quick and easy shipment creation.
Beta Phase Limitations Since this new feature is still in beta phase, there are some limitations.
  • Shipping Method – Currently, the only shipping method available is small parcel delivery – no pallets or LTL shipments with this tool.
  • Carrier – Amazon is not allowing Amazon Partnered Carriers with this tool at this time, meaning you will not be able to purchase shipping labels directly from Amazon. All shipping will need to be purchased off of Amazon.

I was fortunate to be part of MAG's first batch of its Advertising Internship Program. The timing was perfect for me as I was looking for an opportunity to learn more about Amazon PPC and at the same time to have hands-on training to work on accounts.Β Β 


When I started my internship, I listed down the things I wanted to learn. And I am happy to say that I've ticked all the boxes! My most favorite was "Optimization Using Bulk Files”. Bulk files and I, we did not get along at first, it was so scary seeing all those data! But I had a great mentor who guided me along the way. He patiently taught me step by step on how to process the data. He was very enthusiastic in answering all of my questions. He supported me until I gained the confidence in uploading my first, second, third (and so on) bulk uploads.Β 


The biggest advantage in working with MAG (and I must say one thing that I always look forward to every week) is its Weekly Ads Training. Every week, we discuss various topics about PPC. Interns/Ads Specialists/Ads Managers, we all share knowledge, information, and updates about PPC. During our discussions, we exchange ideas and feedback. It became an avenue not just to learn a skill, but also to clear any vague or ambiguous PPC topics.Β 


For me, the biggest disadvantage is the work schedule. As an Intern, I have to follow EST timing. The time difference from my location was only 8 hours, but being a morning person, I really struggled to keep myself awake. But if you are a night owl, then this will not be a problem for you.


So if you are considering joining the MAG Advertising Internship Program, my advice to you is to take action - APPLY NOW! The knowledge that you will gain and the skill that you will develop from this program will be invaluable. And who knows? From being an Intern, you might be the next one to be promoted as Jr. Ads Specialist!Β
