Selling 1P: 5 Things You Need to Know
How You Interact
First-party sellers manage their Amazon relationship via the Vendor Central portal or an e-commerce platform such as ChannelAdvisor. As a 1P seller, Vendor Central allows you to manage orders, generate sales reports and more.
Managing Your Inventory
1P sellers have little control over the SKUs that Amazon chooses to sell. You’re completely dependent on Amazon POs to send inventory, but you also enjoy little inventory risk.
Warehousing and Fulfillment
Amazon purchases and controls your inventory, meaning they’re completely responsible for warehousing products and shipping orders to customers.
Amazon’s standard payment term for 1P brands is net 90, which may cause a cash-flow problem for smaller companies.
Marketing Services and Analytics
Amazon offers a range of powerful marketing and analytics services for both 1P and 3P sellers, including: Amazon Advertising, Amazon Vine, A+ content pages, Early Reviewer Program and Vendor Powered Coupons
