Selling on Amazon.com.au? Well, the step toward the full Amazon offering has been…fulfilled.

Amazon sellers can now send their products to the Amazon fulfilment centre in Melbourne and pay the monolithic marketplace to pick, pack and ship all of their orders to the customer, as well as handle returns under Amazon FBA.

Wondering if you should sign up? Here are the benefits to and you and your consumers (according to Amazon);

The Benefit To Your Customer

  • Faster Delivery
  • Products shipped through Amazon FBA Australia are eligible for Amazon’s customer service
  • Free delivery on eligible orders over $49 and expedited one and two-day delivery (in selected locations)

What Can We Expect Next?

Logically, the next step for Amazon Australia will be the launch of Amazon Prime.

Amazon Prime provides a whole lot of benefits to consumers including FREE 2 day shipping, FREE same day delivery, FREE 2 hour delivery on thousands of products (in selected areas), Prime video, Prime music, loyalty member benefits…the list goes on.

Amazon Prime is definitely a huge contributing factor to the marketplace’s success all across the world.

So, if you think that the Australian launch has been underwhelming, the fight is far from over.
