This article explains the inventory transfer process to FBA from Reserve Storage
Inventory transfer to FBA
Now you can create transfer of your inventory from Deliverr reserve storage to any FBA location with simple steps from your Deliverr Seller Portal account. FBA transfers have 3 components:
- Creating an inbound on Amazon’s `Seller Central: You will still need to do this first step for now (more is coming!) as Deliverr will need:
- Amazon Labels in 4x6 format (download as “4x6 Thermal printing” only)
- Address of destination FBA warehouse
- FBA Shipment ID
- Creating a transfer on Seller Portal: This is our new and exciting product
- Booking Freight: You can use Deliverr Freight or choose your own and provide us information
You can leave the rest on us!
Step by Step flow
Create a transfer in Seller Portal here:
- Open your seller portal account
- On the left, choose “Inventory”
- Under Inventory, choose “Transfers”
- On Transfers page, click the “Create Transfer” button to start a transfer
On the next page, select Amazon FBA as the destination for FBA transfer
Provide the Amazon facility address that you got from Seller Central account while creating the inbound
Select and add SKUs you want to transfer in the search bar. Add all the SKUs before choosing the quantities
On the next screen, add number of boxes you would like to transfer per SKU. We will already populate number of items per box. You can only transfer whole boxes (cases)
Now you can select the shipping method as per your choice:
Choosing Deliverr Freight is simple. You can select it and we will handle the rest
If you choose your own carrier, you need to provide us information on how you want the items to be packed and provide BOL, carrier information and take an appointment later
Now you need to provide us information you got from Seller Central account while creating the inbound. We will prepare the cases and pallets with the provided labels
One last step, review all the information before confirming the transfer
Congrats! Your transfer is confirmed
