A Complete List of Prep Companies for Amazon Sellers - Online Arbitrage - Sellerspaceship.com

In an online arbitrage business model, nothing can save you more time than utilizing a prep company to receive, prep, repackage and fulfill your inventory to Amazon FBA warehouses or buyers. They are also handy for receiving and repackaging private label and wholesale inventory.

How Amazon Prep Center Companies Work to Help Online Arbitrage Businesses

For online arbitrage sellers, prep companies generally work like this:

  • You ship products to the prep company that you purchase on retail websites. Each prep company will give you a shipping address when you create an account with them.
  • The prep companies receive your products.
  • An admin assistant (or you) works with the prep company to create shipment batches to send the received products to Amazon FBA warehouses.  Some prep companies help you create the shipments via Amazon’s website, and others you create the shipment yourself and forward the shipment information to the prep company.
  • The prep company inspects, repackages, and labels all products with a specific Amazon product barcode that is generated when you create the shipments via Amazon’s website or Inventory Lab.
  • The prep companies package all products into specific boxes based on warehouse locations dictated by Amazon and ships them to Amazon FBA warehouses.
  • You can track the shipments via Amazon’s Seller Central website under Inventory > Manage FBA shipments.

All prep companies vary, but most of them charge a set fee (usually $.75 to $2.00 per item they receive and prep for you. Some prep companies also charge extra for packaging materials, including boxes, bubble wrap, and more. Usually, the higher volume you send to the prep company, the cheaper the unit cost becomes.
