Much less pressure on the carrier because the supplier is doing the first half of that work. This now applies only when you ship by c. So what happens when you take the plane? If it goes by air.

Now I'm on my computer and now the first thing you need to click on the like button, tap it right now for me and then we can continue, now we are on manage inventory, so we log in to Amazon Seller Central, go to manage inventory , so at this point you already have a product list created. Well, you need to create your product list to then create a shipping plan for that product. If you don't have a product list created, that's beyond the scope of this video, but keep watching so you know exactly when you're ready. How do you do this then, what are you going to do, you are going to click on your product.
I can't show you this product right now, but one day I will on this channel. It is a case study that I am going to show. Okay, now what we're going to do is click on Send Restock in this drop down menu, so now you're ordering individual products or in box packs, but before we get to that, we need to cover shipping from the address. I'm going to assume we are doing air ddp deliveries directly from the Chinese manufacturer to Amazon, so here you can see I have a Beijing address which is my supplier. Okay, so we'll click on box package products, individual package products, it means that you.
We are putting a lot of different items in this box, hammer, scissors, glasses, all in one box and shipped to Amazon. Obviously we're not going to do that. You're ordering several of the same product, the same product, all in one box, so now we can go. continue with the shipping plan, so now they ask you how many boxes and how many units per box. In this example, this is one case, two units per box, let's say 50 units per box and two boxes, that is, one hundred units in total. Make sure you don't. Don't put it backwards and say two units and 50 boxes.
Now that we're done, we'll go ahead and hit Continue. Now it will ask you who will prepare these products and select the merchants you are preparing. yourself, you will ask your supplier to prepare them for you, pack the boxes properly and add the fn skus. Amazon can do it for you, but it will be more expensive. You'll click choose category and for some reason my screen doesn't. I don't record these pop-ups, but there's a big drop-down menu here and I'm clicking on no preparation needed, so now you can go ahead and click continue now on this page.
Amazon is giving you your fn sku. The fnsku is the barcode that you are going to put your product on, so if I click on that I can open it and there is the barcode, the fn sku that goes on the box of your product, so now it allows you to review your shipment and then you can change the name of your shipment. which I would do, so I would go to product and then I would have like 200 units or whatever you want to call it, it's totally up to you, this is just for your own organization, so now I'm going to hit approve and continue. so it's product 200, it's a sku, it's two boxes and it's 100 units total and now they're telling you that you can ship this to jefferson, where is g.a? georgio has it all right georgia sorry guys no I'm Canadian so I don't know my states so now you can prepare your shipment properly so at this point you also have your shipment so this shipment is also the address you will give to your supplier.
Your supplier will ship the product to this address. now it is a small partial delivery, uh, less than a truck, this is for pallet shipping, which we are not doing, we are doing smaller quantities properly and since we ship directly from China, we cannot use Amazon's partner carrier, please what you are doing others. land ocean air carrier so air again if you can't see my drop down and it's just drop down and your carrier then your carrier is what you're going to discuss with your supplier so just put what you already discussed but I'll put DHL How will this shipment be packaged in multiple boxes?
And that's just a simple question: is it one box or do you have multiple boxes? We said we had several boxes, right? We said we had two boxes, so that's what I selected and this. it's a reconfirmation of what we said before so 50 per box with two boxes weighing 10 pounds and make sure you put random things in here but make sure you add the actual dimensions into the actual weight of the box when you do this. At this point, you will click confirm. I don't want to do this because it's not an actual shipping plan that I'm creating, but once you click confirm, what will happen is you'll have the option to print. your shipping labels, so you see, you can almost see it cool here, there's a button here, print the shipping label, then it will print that and it will look exactly like the fn sku page that we have here and then.
You are going to send that shipping label to your supplier and the deed is done now the supplier will put the shipping label on your box. Bam, they'll ship your box directly to Amazon. Amazon will receive it and then your page will be seen. so on Amazon it will say received and then closed, so your product is on Amazon and ready to sell now.
