European Fulfilment Network

Can I sell my products on any (or all) of Amazon’s other European Marketplaces?

Yes. Amazon-fulfilled inventory can be listed for sale on any (or all) of Amazon’s European Marketplaces (UK, Germany, France, Italy and Spain) using Amazon’s European Marketplaces Account. When an order from these marketplaces arrives, Amazon will fulfill the order from your inventory stored in your home marketplace through our European Fulfillment Network.

Can I sell my products on Amazon’s International Marketplaces (US, Canada, Japan and China)?

Yes. However, Amazon’s European accounts do not allow sellers to sell on all Amazon’s international Marketplaces. To do this, you must create an Amazon selling account under separate terms in these countries and manage the account separately from your accounts in other geographical locations.

What is the European Fulfillment Network?

The European Fulfillment Network (EFN) allows sellers with an Amazon European Marketplaces Account who are also registered for Fulfillment by Amazon to store their inventory in their local fulfillment center and fulfill orders coming from other European marketplaces from the same local inventory pool, maximizing the control and flexibility you have over your inventory.

What is the difference between FBA Export and the European Fulfillment Network (EFN)?

When selling through EFN, sellers must localize their existing marketplace offers to other Amazon European marketplaces to allow local customers to purchase them. For example, a Germany-based customer can purchase an Italian seller’s offer listed on Amazon.de once the seller has registered its FBA Italian-based products on the German marketplace.

When selling with FBA Export, sellers make their Amazon marketplace offers available to EU and worldwide customers who can purchase them on the marketplace where the seller has listed their offers. For example, a Dutch-based customer can purchase a German seller’s offer on Amazon.de provided the seller has activated FBA Export on the German marketplace. Thus, if sellers sign up for FBA Export, their FBA products won’t be automatically listed for sale on other Amazon marketplaces.

Am I obligated to use EFN to fulfill my international European FBA orders?

No, you can continue selling locally, with a seller account opened directly on the local European marketplace and send your inventory to an Amazon fulfillment center in that marketplace from which your orders will be fulfilled. The advantage of doing this is that the orders will be available for local fast track delivery options.

How do I register for the European Fulfillment Network program?

There is no separate registration process. If you are using Fulfilment by Amazon in one European marketplace, you will automatically be able to use the European Fulfilment Network in all other Amazon European marketplaces via your Amazon European Marketplaces account when your listings are uploaded to each marketplace with the same SKU and converted to Fulfilled by Amazon on each marketplace.

If you do not hold an Amazon European Marketplaces Account, you will not be able to activate the European Fulfillment Network functionality; you have to open an Amazon European Marketplaces Account under separate terms for the marketplace(s) you wish to sell in and manage the account and inventory separately from accounts and inventory in other geographies.

How do I create offers for my Amazon-fulfilled inventory on other Amazon Marketplaces to be able to use the European Fulfillment Network?

Using your Amazon European Marketplaces account, you can create offers on any of Amazon’s European marketplaces using the same process you used to create offers on your home marketplace. When you provide the same SKU for the product that you have provided in your home marketplace, your offer will be linked to the same inventory pool.

Will my orders be eligible for Amazon Prime with EFN?

Yes, all orders will be eligible for Amazon Prime, regardless of the marketplace.

How much does European Fulfillment Network cost?

Can I sell my products on Amazon’s International Marketplaces (US, Canada, Japan and China)?

Yes. However, Amazon’s European seller accounts do not allow sellers to sell on Amazon’s International Marketplaces. To do this, you must create an Amazon Selling Account under separate terms in these countries and manage the account separately from accounts in other geographical location.

The European Fulfilment Network (EFN) allows sellers with an Amazon European Marketplaces Account who are also registered for Fulfilment by Amazon to store their inventory in their local Fulfilment Centre and fulfil orders coming from other European marketplaces from the same local inventory pool.

European Fulfilment Network simplifies your inventory management by keeping all your inventory in one local pool, i.e. one Fulfilment Centre, maximising the control and flexibility you have over your inventory.

What is the difference between FBA Export and the European Fulfilment Network (EFN)?

When selling through EFN, sellers must localise their existing marketplace offers to other Amazon European marketplaces to allow local customers to purchase them. For example, a Germany-based customer can purchase an Italian seller’s offer listed on Amazon.de once the seller has registered its FBA Italian-based products on the German marketplace.

When selling with FBA Export, sellers make their Amazon marketplace offers available to EU and worldwide customers who can purchase them on the marketplace where the seller has listed their offers.

How do I register for the European Fulfilment Network programme?

There is no separate registration process. If you are using Fulfilment by Amazon in one European marketplace, you will automatically be able to use the European Fulfilment Network in all other Amazon European marketplaces via your Amazon European Marketplaces account or Unified Selling Account when your listings are uploaded to each marketplace with the same SKU and converted to Fulfilled by Amazon on each Marketplace.

If you hold an Amazon Seller Account that is not (or cannot) be unified, you will not be able to activate the European Fulfilment Network functionality. The alternative is to open a new Amazon European Marketplaces Account under separate terms for the marketplace(s) you wish to sell in and manage the account and inventory separately from accounts and inventory in other geographies.

How do I create offers for my Amazon-fulfilled inventory on other Amazon Marketplaces in order to be able to use the European Fulfilment Network?

Using your Amazon European Marketplaces account or Unified Selling Account, you can create offers on any of Amazon’s European marketplaces using the same process you used to create offers on Amazon.co.uk. When you provide the same SKU for the item that you have provided in Great Britain, your offer will be linked to the same inventory pool.
