About Amazon Shipping

 

Amazon is a cloud-based technology company that focuses on cloud computing, artificial intelligence, e-commerce, digital streaming and online advertising. Amazon shipping provides shipping services to e-commerce retailers to send packages and parcels globally. Though this service is Amazon-owned, online sellers can use this service to sell products on other sales channels or marketplaces. Amazon shipping is highly reliable for next-day delivery services, makes the claims process easy and eliminates weekend delivery surcharges. 

Amazon is a US-based multinational company founded by Jeff Bezos in 1994. The company went public in 1997. In 2002, the company launched its Amazon Web Services (AWS), which provides APIs to web developers for web development. In 2006, Amazon initiated its Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) program, which enabled third-party merchants and individuals to sell and deliver products through its warehouse infrastructure. 

Amazon shipping services make the shipping journey easier for millions of consumers. These services provide an excellent post-purchase experience and help e-commerce companies to expand globally. The company's fulfilment services use state-of-the-art technology to support businesses of every size in processing orders. Amazon's aircraft fleet assists online sellers in delivering products fastly and safely. The company's shipping services also include express delivery services. The Prime Air shipping option sends parcels to customers in 30 minutes using drones. This service increases the efficiency and safety of the transportation system.

E-commerce businesses can ship items to consumers in the Amazon marketplace in two ways. These ways are Fulfilment By Amazon (FBA) and Fulfilment By Merchant (FBM). With FBA, Amazon picks, packs, stores, and delivers parcels to customers. This fulfilment option helps e-commerce stores to reach more people and scale their businesses. Using the FBM option, sellers can fulfil their orders when their items are sold on Amazon, either through a 3PL or self-fulfilment. ClickPost has a courier API integration with Amazon shipping.
