When you enable Multi-Country Inventory (MCI), you will be able to send inventory into any of Amazon's European fulfilment centres. In the Shipment Creation Workflow you will be able to choose from the available countries to send inventory using the drop down selector in the “Create Plan” stage of the workflow.
Note: You will need to create one inbound shipment per country. This inventory will be considered a single pool of European Inventory so that when you run out-of-stock in one country you can secure customer sales by using inventory physically located in another European fulfilment centre.
We recommend adding a suffix to your product’s Merchant SKU to indicate in which marketplace the inventory physically resides. Using the Multi-Country Inventory Report will help you to determine your product balance per country.
Managing Listings using Multi-Country Inventory
When listing in Amazon’s other European Marketplaces, you must also list in your home marketplace. This is the marketplace where you first registered your account.

Note: Storing inventory in other countries may trigger additional VAT obligations for your business such as a registration need in the target country.
