Using a prep center for Amazon Business is a great way to free up your time and the space in your home, by outsourcing the storing of inventory and consolidation to a third party. In this video, we look at some of the hows and whys of using prep centers, and what you’ll need to think about.
Many FBA sellers use their own homes as their individual prep centers. They receive inventory from suppliers, remove any pricing labels, and store it all before it’s time to send it to Amazon’s warehouse. This works for some people, but not for everyone, and it definitely doesn’t scale.
FBA prep centers do the FBA prep management for you – at a price. They can manage your inventory for you, so you can travel or use the space in your home for something else. While this convenience does come with a cost, and includes a small bit of supervision and management, it could be what you need to scale your FBA business and get some of your time and energy back.
