Amazon reintroduces European Fulfilment Network
Starting March 2022, Amazon have reintroduced the European Fulfilment Network between the UK and the EU, subject to European Fulfilment Network Fees. Eligible offers will become live in phases until May 2022.
The European Fulfilment Network allows FBA sellers with an EU account to store their inventory in local fulfilment centres and fulfil orders from other EU stores, maximising inventory control and flexibility.
To sell between the UK and the EU using the European Fulfilment Network, companies must have the following:
- Access to both the UK and the EU Seller Central accounts
- FBA offers for your products in both the UK and the EU
- Inventory for eligible offers stored in local fulfilment centres.
- Shipping programmes and export settings enabled.
- For EU to UK fulfilment, all EU stores must be enabled for export (Germany, Italy, France, Spain).
- If you have more than one EU account, each account must be managed separately.
Amazon explains on its website: “By using the European Fulfilment Network to fulfil your products across the UK-EU customs border, you authorise Amazon and its affiliates to export goods (including signing a commercial invoice) on your behalf, as required. This invoice itemises and describes the contents of your shipment and authorises brokers and other third parties to execute additional documents that are required for the export of your products.”
