Amazon’s power within the supplement industry is impacting the rate of growth for the market. At a 40% increase in sales (a 12% faster rate than the general eCommerce market), the vitamin and supplement category is outpacing other categories in the eCommerce landscape, according to the most recent report from Slice Intelligence. This same report also revealed that Amazon accounted for 77% of all U.S. vitamins and supplements sold online in 2017.
With the large amount of influence Amazon has on the vitamin and supplement online market, Paragon Laboratories has become an Amazon-friendly contract manufacturer to ensure your product is ready for eCommerce.
We work directly with you to ensure your product follows Amazon’s FBA guidelines, which includes logging:
Additionally, we will prep the shipment for safe traveling from our facility to the Amazon warehouses, label each product/package with its own barcode, and pack each product/package to Amazon’s specific standards.
After we determine the quantity of units, cases, and pallets, Amazon logs this into the Amazon Seller Central and will send over Amazon Case Labels and Pallet Labels to apply to each case for receipt in its warehouses.
When your product arrives at the warehouse, Amazon will sort your inventory and send it to different distribution centers based on the geographical demand.
And, the best part is this step requires nothing from you. You can also decide if Amazon is able to change and/or commingle your product.
As soon as it arrives to the warehouse, your product will be entered into Amazon’s database. This will allow you to activate your listing so you can start advertising.
When an order is placed on Amazon, each item in the order is immediately processed and prepared for shipping.
If you are selling your products on a third party website (such as your own website), you will need to automatically or manually route each order through Multi-Channel Fulfillment.
Each order is handled by the closest fulfillment center. At this point in the process, you and your customers can track the product’s shipping status using information provided by Amazon.
We want to help you get your product ready for the online marketplace. Please remember that we do have minimum order quantity requirements:
