Amazon recently announced that Prime Day 2022 will be July 12th -13th. Being among the most popular shopping days of the year, Amazon Prime Day is like experiencing Christmas in July for Amazon retailers.
Here are some valuable tips to help product brands prepare for Prime Day 2022.
Look for a partner to handle all Amazon prep services
Amazon’s FBA prep services have extensive receiving requirements that increase your expenses before even sending products to the marketplace. Some examples include:
Apparel on a hanger must have the hanger removed and be placed in a transparent poly bag to protect from damage or dust.
Baby products must be placed in a transparent poly bag, have a suffocation warning, be in a secured bag (if not self-adhesive), and include a scannable barcode.
Fragile/glass items must be placed in bubble wrap or a bubble bag with the box secured or taped, pass a drop test on a hard surface without breaking, and include a scannable barcode.
Keeping up with a laundry list of prep to-do’s is time-consuming and expensive when done on your own. And ensuring products are properly prepared ahead of Prime Day to avoid rejected inventory due to non-compliance can feel overwhelming. Work with a provider like Taylor (cough, cough).
Taylor offers a wide variety of prep solutions, including FBA carton labeling, palletizing and pallet labeling, inventory, applying SKU labeling, and more.
