Support How we can help
Our top priority during this difficult time is to offer solutions through our network of businesses and options we have available. Through free consultation, recomendations or using our serivces to help during these difficult times – we’re eager to help and your business is our top priority.
Fulfillment By Merchant on Amazon is when the seller is in control of his entire handling and shipping process. Instead of paying a service fee and shipping inventory to Amazon to handle, the seller uses his or her own resources and sends the items directly to the buyer.
We’re able to manage the entire fulfillment, similar to how Amazon will offer, from our own facility. We’ll prepare, pack and ship your products directly to customers across North America during these times when Amazon isn’t able too.
Along with this, we’re able to fulfill multi-channel for eBay, Walmart & Etsy too.
Currently, Amazon.ca is still allowing to send to their Canadian Fulfillment Channels. This means businesses who had stock for Amazon.com, we’ll be able to send this to Canada and sell in their fulfillment warehouse under Prime.
If you’re selling on Amazon.com, this is a great time to expand into the Canadian market while it’s still available.
We’ll receive it, prep & pack accordingly to Amazon’s guidelines and send it to Amazons Fulfillment Warehouses here in Canada.
We’ll be offering free consultation and advice sessions on what you’re options are as a small business on quick 15-30 minute phone calls with one of our Amazon experts. Hopefully, we’ll be able to help you make prompt decisions and refer you in the direction through our partnered channels for solutions and services your team needs immediately.
We’ll be hosting several Facebook lives & webinars over the next week to offer support and what we’re seeing in the space from a higher level, we will be announcing this via email so your business can listen in.
