The information on this page that relates to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) applies to those who sell in Germany. To list and sell your products in any of our other stores, go to Amazon Global Selling.
FBA Shipping Programs and Export (“FBA Export”) allows you to fulfill orders of eligible products on Amazon.de to a mailing address that is not within Germany. With this program, you can expand your business to more than 80 countries without dealing with the complexities of selling internationally, at no additional cost or effort for you.
By participating in FBA Export, you agree to the program’s terms and conditions.

Your seller account is automatically enrolled in Worldwide, unless you disable this program.

This commercial invoice will itemize and describe the contents of the shipment and authorize brokers and other third parties to execute additional documents necessary for the export of your products.
Certain items are controlled for export under the laws of the US, the UK, the European Union and Individual European Union Member States, and cannot be listed for FBA Export.
Items typically cannot be listed for FBA Export for the following reasons:

Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders can be exported to European countries that are supported by FBA. Worldwide export orders, including Media products, are not supported by Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders. For international Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders, you must identify the destination country when you submit the order.
The online Multi-Channel Fulfillment Order form has a drop-down menu listing the countries available for FBA Export. For a list of countries supported by Amazon, see Which country/countries can I ship my products to?
When processing customer returns for units fulfilled via FBA export, Amazon’s FBA Return Policy is used to determine whether a unit is eligible to be returned. You do not pay any shipping cost for FBA Export customer returns.
With FBA Export, Amazon provides fulfillment and customer service for your orders, including processing buyer returns. We use Amazon’s return policies to determine whether a unit is eligible to be returned. However, to ensure a good buyer experience, we'll make case-by-case exceptions and accept returns for units fulfilled through FBA that may be past the stated return timeframe. You do not pay any shipping costs for FBA Export customer returns.
When a buyer returns a product, the standard Amazon returns policy will be followed. If the returned product is received in sellable condition, it will be returned to the original seller’s inventory. If the returned product is not in sellable condition, we'll determine who is at fault (Amazon or the buyer) and provide reimbursement according to the FBA lost and damaged inventory reimbursement policy.
The buyer must pay the return shipping costs if there is no product defect. If there is a product defect, the buyer pays and ships the product back to Amazon's warehouse. We will compensate the buyer for the actual return shipping cost when the parcel is received. You do not pay any shipping costs for FBA Export customer returns.
