If you are a seller using Amazon FBA and you need to ship your products to a fulfillment center, here are some steps you can follow:

Follow the prompts to specify the details of your shipment, including the number of units, the destination fulfillment center, and the shipping method.

- Pack your products: Properly packing your products is important to ensure that they arrive at the fulfillment center in good condition. Use sturdy boxes and fill any empty space with packing materials to prevent damage during shipping.
- Print and attach shipping labels: Amazon will provide you with shipping labels that you will need to print and attach to your packages. Be sure to include any required documentation, such as commercial invoices or hazardous materials declarations, if applicable.
- Schedule a pickup or drop off your packages: Once your packages are ready to go, you can schedule a pickup by a carrier or drop them off at a shipping location. Be sure to keep track of your tracking numbers so you can monitor the progress of your shipment.
