What is Remote Fulfillment with FBA?

Remote Fulfillment with FBA lets you sell your products in Canada, Mexico, and Brazil without having to send inventory to those countries yourself.

When enrolled in the program, your listings will be available on Amazon.ca, Amazon.com.mx, and Amazon.com.br. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) will use your inventory in U.S. fulfillment centers to complete orders across the border directly to the customer.

What is Global Store?

Global Store is a program that helps you sell your products to customers around the world. Through the program, Amazon will automatically price, translate, and list your products in Amazon stores across the globe. Then, when a customer buys your FBA product, Amazon will purchase the product from you locally and handle shipment to the customer.
