axis diplomat supports Amazon Pan-European FBA
We are pleased to announce the release of a new module that is available now for axis diplomat 2018 to provide support for Amazon's Pan-European FBA.
Fulfilled by Amazon ("FBA") is Amazon's scheme that allows you to sell items through the Amazon Marketplace but have Amazon hold the stock and ship the orders. One of the main advantages of FBA is that it ensures that all of your products appear with the "Prime" badge.
Pan-European FBA extends the scheme to give you access to the European market; Amazon will hold your stock in a variety of fulfillment centres across Europe and ship from whichever fulfillment centre is most convenient for their logistics.
Before you are able to join the Pan-European FBA scheme, you must be registered for VAT in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic. Fortunately, axis diplomat 2018 already has a module available to handle multiple VAT Registrations.
With Pan-European FBA, you ship your stock to your domestic Amazon fulfillment centre and Amazon then move the stock around Europe as they see fit. You do not need to manually keep track of which locations, in which country, Amazon are holding your stock - they simply provide this data electronically and this is imported directly into your axis diplomat system.
