Are you ready to send your first shipment to FBA warehouse in States? Then you need to read this post How Canadian FBA sellers can ship to USA warehouse cheaply?
STEP:1 – FIND A US BOUND LOCAL SHIPPING COMPANY
US bound local shipping companies are not big companies like UPS or FedEx. They are smaller companies who have register warehouse address in USA. You will use their USA provided address to create shipment from your seller central.
Best companies in Canada to ship USA warehouse are:
DYK post is based in Alberta and most of the ebay and Amazon sellers use them as a middle many to ship from Canada to US. Their rates are based on weight of shipment not on dimensions.
Stallion Express is commonly used by Toronto and GTA sellers. Chit Chat express is very popular in east and west coast both.
They are other companies as well who can help you ship but these three companies I recommend.
STEP:2 – CREATE AN ACCOUNT WITH THESE US BOUND COMPANIES
Create an account with any of this company depending on your location. Read their website and find out if there is anything else you need to do. They will provide you with their US shipping address. This address you can use in your seller central to create a shipping plan. Amazon partnered UPS cost will give a heavy discount.
STEP:3 – CREATE SHIPPING PLAN FROM SELLER CENTRAL AND DROP IT OFF AT LOCAL US BOUND SHIPPING COMPANY
Create a shipping plan from seller central and ship or drop off at their warehouse. You will need to submit a manifest which includes origin of product, quantity, weight and declared value. If declared value of your shipment exceeds $800 then you will have to pay duties. If it is more than $800 then they will ship only one box each day.
For example if your shipment has four boxes and value is $3200, they will ship one box per day and it will take extra four days to ship Looking at the price it’s definitely worth it.
Stick the shipping labels outside the box and they know the rest. These companies deal with hundreds of FBA sellers every day and know what they are doing.
