Delivering to Amazon Fulfilment with Puckator
What is Amazon Fulfilment?
Amazon Fulfilment, or FBA, is a solution offered by Amazon that lets you access the benefits of their network such as easy selling and Prime Delivery, to help you reach more customers, increase sales and develop your product range. All your have to do is send them your products and they handle the rest including storage, delivery, returns and customer service.
Does Puckator Sell Directly on Amazon?
No. As a company, we do not sell directly on Amazon, however, we work with many customers who do. On Amazon, products are identified by barcodes, also known as an EAN. The barcodes on the products we sell are all 13 characters long, and the first 8 are unique to Puckator. That means our products are branded as Puckator when they are uploaded to Amazon.
Working with Puckator and Amazon Fulfilment is Easy
At Puckator, we make the process of ordering and delivering to an Amazon Fulfilment Centre quick and easy, here's how it works:
- Place your order - Place and pay for your order on our wholesale website. Enter your details for the invoice address and enter the Amazon warehouse address as the delivery address. If you don't know where the goods will be shipped when you place your order, don't worry, enter your details with a note that the delivery address will be confirmed later.
- Add a note - Add a note in the notes box during checkout to let our team know the goods are going to Amazon. Include any special instructions you need to make us aware of.
- Wait for us to send you packing information - When we receive your order our team will send it to our warehouse for processing, and once packed, we will send you packing information including box weight and dimensions so you can produce the final ASN and carton labels. Please wait until you receive this information before sending us your Amazon labels.
- Send us your Amazon labels - Once you have received the packing information from our team, complete the shipment process on your Amazon portal and send us your labels. Your order will then be dispatched to Amazon.
Delivering to Amazon
There are Amazon Fulfilment centres all around the UK and Europe, we can dispatch to any of these.
Amazon and DPD work closely together and with the volume of consignments going in and out of Amazon on a daily basis, DPD has regular delivery slots into each depot. DPD only deliver into Amazon on a weekday, Monday to Friday, and do not deliver on a Saturday.
Packaging and Labelling
To deliver to an FBA location special Amazon labels need to be applied to the outer cartons before dispatch. We will contact you once your order is packed with full details on the items packed in each box, along with the weight and dimensions of the box. When you have completed your shipment on the Amazon portal send us the labels as a PDF and we will print them and apply them to your boxes before dispatch.
If you are interested in creating bespoke product bundles for Amazon please get in touch with our customer service team to discuss the options.

Amazon & Bamboo Composite Food Contact Products
Amazon has taken the decision to remove any food contact products with a material composition of bamboo and melamine from their site, even though these products are fully tested. This means bamboo food products are currently not being accepted for resale by Amazon fulfilment and any listings you have for these products may be removed without warning by Amazon. If you purchase these products for Amazon fulfilment it will be at your own risk and any returns will have to be authorised by Puckator and if agreed returned at your own cost.
Why Not Try Dropshipping?
If you sell online, either on your own website, on Amazon or eBay, or even Facebook or Etsy, then take a look at our Dropshipping Website.
With dropshipping, you advertise and sell the products but don't have to hold the stock. When you make a sale you place the order on our dropshipping website and we dispatch direct to your customer. We can ship worldwide, there are standard and priority delivery options, and we have a huge selection of products to choose from. There are no subscription fees, it's quick, simple and easy and could expand your product range by just a few products, or by 1000's. Visit Puckator Dropship to find out more today.
