FBA Export

FBA Shipping Programmes and Export policy

The FBA Shipping Programmes and Export (“FBA Export”) allows you to fulfill orders of eligible products on Amazon.it to a mailing address that is not within Italy. Each seller account is automatically enabled for “EU” unless you disable this programme. FBA Shipping Programmes and Export currently offers three options:

  • EU: Customers with postal addresses in Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Sweden can order your FBA products on Amazon.it;
  • EU and Media Worldwide: In addition to ‘EU’ shipping options, customers with postal addresses in more than 100 countries can order your media FBA products on Amazon.it;
  • Domestic: Only customers with mailing addresses in Italy can order your FBA products on Amazon.it.

By listing products in FBA you agree that Amazon ships your FBA orders on Amazon.it to postal addresses in accordance with your FBA Export settings. You can, at any time, exclude a product from FBA Export [here] or change or disable your FBA Export settings by visiting the “Shipping programmes and Export settings” page. Your participation in FBA Export is subject to this programme policy, the terms of the Amazon Services Europe Business Solutions Agreement, including Amazon’s International Seller Rules and Amazon’s programme policies. You must exclude any Prohibited Products (click here) before you start selling with FBA Export.

ASIN eligibility in the Exportable Inventory Report only confirms that the product can be shipped outside the UK using Amazon’s European Fulfilment Network. This might change from time to time. It does not validate that your product complies with any laws applicable to its offer, sale, transportation and/or storage. You are solely responsible for and must ensure that your products comply with all applicable laws at all times.

Note: There are no additional fees for FBA Export orders on Amazon. For Multi-Channel Fulfilment orders to international addresses, refer to the rate card that can be downloaded from this page.
Important: Shipping products into an additional country to your home marketplace country might trigger additional VAT registration and reporting obligations for your business (as well as other reporting requirements such as Intrastat). You will be responsible for the collection and payment of your taxes together with the filing of all relevant returns and issuing VAT invoices/credit notes where required. To learn more about VAT see Europe Tax and Regulatory Considerations or get more information regarding External Tax Advisers here: https://services.amazon.com/solution-providers/#/search/IT/tax (English- and Chinese-language only). Please note that we will share information about your transactions and units where obligated, for example if justifiably requested by governmental entities or regulatory authorities that have jurisdiction over Amazon.

We can terminate your participation in FBA Export, remove ASINs or offers from FBA Export, discontinue this programme or modify the policy thereof at any time.

How to Edit your FBA Export settings

FBA export settings are marketplace specific. To edit your FBA Export settings, click Fulfilment by Amazon under the Settings drop-down menu in Seller Central. You can edit FBA Export for EU under the Shipping Programmes and Export Settings group. You can choose to discontinue exporting your FBA products at any time by changing your settings in that same page or exclude an ASIN from this programme by clicking here.

International Multi-Channel Fulfilment Orders

Multi-Channel Fulfilment orders can be exported to EU countries that are supported by FBA. World-wide export orders, including Media products, are not supported by Multi-Channel Fulfilment orders. For international Multi-Channel Fulfilment orders, you must identify the destination country when you submit the order. The online Multi-Channel Fulfilment Order form has a drop-down menu listing the countries available for FBA Export. If you are submitting orders using a flat file or an API, you will need to enter the two-letter ISO country code for the countries supported by Amazon.

At no extra charge, you can enrol in the EU FBA Shipping programme and expand your business to EU26 countries (media and non-media products) and worldwide (media products) without dealing with cross-border selling complexities.

  • International customers can visit your home marketplace and shop for products eligible for international shipping.
  • Amazon fulfils your international orders and ships your product to the international customer's address.
  • International customers pay international shipping. This is at no extra cost to you.
  • You can determine what products you want to exclude from the international shipping in addition to Amazon-provided eligibility check.

When processing customer returns for units fulfilled through EU FBA export, Amazon’s FBA Return Policy are used to determine whether a unit is eligible to be returned. The seller does not pay any shipping cost in FBA export customer returns.
