Zumasys recently helped a customer navigate through the Amazon direct fulfillment process, leveraging the power of open APIs and IMACS.
Also known as Dropship, the Direct Fulfillment program is available to select Vendors. A Direct Fulfillment connection allows Vendors to provide real-time inventory via EDI (electronic data interchange) feed for an entire catalog.
Selling through Amazon FBA (Fulfillment by Amazon) opens up access to 150 million paid Prime members around the world and can help business scale by leaving the shipping, returns, and customer service to Amazon.
With the new APIs, the opportunities are endless. You can connect to anything you want within Amazon services. The details and Amazon signatures are all handled behind the scenes so that anybody can do it.
While Amazon has its own website for customers to purchase from, they also integrate with other marketplaces like Walmart, Target, eBay, etc. Using API integration, you can start accepting orders from any of these marketplaces. It only takes about 15 minutes to set up a new marketplace.
Before, you might have had to draw people to mycompany.com; everybody already goes to Walmart, Amazon, Target, etc. Your products are listed in these stores without a customer having to find your website directly.
This is huge for SEO and a big competitive advantage over companies that only sell through their own sites or brick-and-mortar stores.
“Zumasys has spent the last decade building the most experienced, capable bench of MultiValue professionals in the industry. We are here to help,” said Elvin Wytko, senior software developer at Zumasys.
