FBA program is a service that lets Amazon handle your shipping, that means, each time a customer makes a purchase, Amazon will take care of picking, packing, and sending the items to the customer(s). This program gives sellers the opportunity to grow their business and start making money on Amazon. As you know the fulfilment fees could cost you a fortune and eat into your profit. That is a pity, especially when you sell cheap products. That is why Amazon launched Small and Light program for sellers who sell small and low-cost products to enable them to make reasonable profit while they can save money on FBA fees.
This year Amazon has brought some changes to the Small and Light program and included a wider range of products you can enroll in and start to save more money!
