Dropship with Amazon

Drew sent in a question by email: I’ve been drop shipping from China to eBay, and it’s working great. Although I hear it’s not possible, I know someone dropshipping with Amazon, is it ok to do so?

Well, this doesn’t have a straight yes or no answer.

Drop shipping to Amazon is allowed but, not the traditional dropshipping we all know.

You need to be the seller of the product.

before I type any more, have a read below:

Amazon’s Drop Shipping Policy

“Drop shipping, or allowing a third party to fulfill orders to customers on your behalf, is generally acceptable. If you intend to fulfill orders using a drop shipper, you must always:

  • Be the seller of record of your products;
  • Identify yourself as the seller of your products on all packing slips and other information included or provided in connection with them;
  • Be responsible for accepting and processing customer returns of your products; and
  • Comply with all other terms of your seller agreement and applicable Amazon policies.

Examples of drop shipping that is not permitted:

  • Purchasing products from another online retailer and having that retailer ship directly to customers; or
  • Shipping orders with packing slips, invoices, or other information indicating a seller name or contact information other than your own.”
