It allows us to ship from our Canadian warehouse to any US FBA Fulfillment Center. All processes are the same as if you were shipping to a Canadian FBA Fulfillment Center.
USA Shipments are subject to a per-box forwarding fee based on weight, and are limited to an $800/box/address/day under Section 321 to avoid paying any duties or customs.
If you're shipping a high volume order to the USA (1,000+ units) - get in touch with your account rep as there are some options that may benefit you when doing high volume.
To Setup Your USA Account
If you have an existing Canadian account, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a request to open a US account.
You will need to provide a different email in this request than the one you currently use to login to your Canadian account.
Your Canadian account and US account will have the same company name on the web app, and they are followed by either (CA) or (US) respective of the account region you've set it up as.
If you only want a US account, and don't have an existing account, simply pick Amazon.com as your only sales channel during your registration form.
How To Setup Inbounds for US Accounts
1 Supplier - Same Products Sold On USA and Canada Marketplaces = 1 Inbound
If the products are identical, please only make 1 inbound on your Canadian account. All inventory will be tracked and stored on your Canadian account. When you make a USA shipment on your USA account, your inventory will be subtracted and reflected in your Canadian account.
1 Supplier - Some Products Sold On USA, Some Are For Canada = 2 Inbounds
If you're getting mixed inventory in one order from your supplier where some products are only for the USA and some are only for Canada - please make 2 inbound plans.
One inbound plan will be for the Canadian inventory on the Canadian account
Another inbound plan will be for the USA inventory on the USA account.
In the notes for both of the inbounds, please write down that this inbound is split between your CA & US accounts.
1 Supplier - Only USA Products = 1 Inbound
If your products from an order are only for your USA account, you can simply make the inbound on the USA account only as normal and the inventory will be tracked and monitored from the USA account.
How is the $800 retail value calculated?
Our box content software will automatically calculate the lowest average 30 day selling price on Amazon.com for your SKUs and use this value to check what your boxes are valued. The $800 limit is based on retail value in the USA, not the cost you paid your supplier.
Can we adjust prices?
The CBSA agents at the border that look at your products find the retail price from doing a quick Google search or searching it on Amazon - so there's not much room for modification. If we noticed the price is currently a bit inflated, or there's room for reasonable modifications, it may be done to allow for more units to be send over per day only within reason.
