In the FBA Export program, you use product listings in your Seller Central account to sell FBA Export-eligible products to international customers shopping on Amazon.de. Amazon does not charge an additional seller fee.
There are instances where products are indicated as restricted from international shipping on the above FBA Exportable Inventory report:
Amazon generates a report that helps you identify your products that are eligible for FBA Export, fulfill your international orders, handle import duty and customs clearance where applicable, and ship your product to the international buyer’s address.
If you have concerns that distribution agreements might limit where your products can be sold overseas, you can opt out of FBA Export, exclude certain products from the program or exclude country and destinations from export.
You may exclude specific ASINs from the FBA Export program from the FBA Export: Exclude countries/regions per product page.
You may exclude all of your products from being exportable to any country from the Countries/regions excluded from FBA Export page.
With FBA Export, international customers will be able to order your products that are eligible for the program. To see a sales report for your FBA exports, go to the Reports tab and click Fulfilment by Amazon. From the left panel under Sales, click Amazon Fulfilled Shipments.

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 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.
With FBA Export, Amazon provides fulfillment and customer service for your orders, including processing buyer returns. Amazon uses Amazon’s return policies to determine whether a unit is eligible to be returned. However, to ensure a good buyer experience, Amazon will make case-by-case exceptions and accept returns for units fulfilled through FBA that may be past the stated return time frame. You do not pay any shipping costs for FBA Export buyer 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, Amazon will determine who is at fault (Amazon or the buyer) and make 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. Amazon 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 buyer returns.
