The importance of the 'Prime Badge'

To be successful on Prime Day, it is important to show the Amazon Prime Badge on as many of your products as possible. Using the Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) program, you can display a Prime Badge on those products and appeal to Prime members. Learn more below.

Use FBA to accelerate success

You sell it, we ship it. Amazon has one of the most advanced fulfillment networks in the world. With Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA), you store your products in Amazon's fulfillment centers, and we pick, pack, ship, and provide customer service for these products.

FBA can help you scale your business and reach more customers. When asked, 75.5% of sellers said their sales increased for products sold using FBA. (July 2018, Amazon research, excluding non-respondents).

You can start using FBA with just a single product, and right now we have a special promotion to help save you money for new ASINs registered on Amazon.co.jp (see details here). Why not try shipping your top selling items with FBA and see how it improves your business efficiency and sales?
