Thank you Kika for showing me this page. So looking for advise. About to set up my first listing and create a shipping plan. I live in NY and I’m getting shipment from China. Should I look for an Amazon distribution center in California to try and save on shipping cost or juts go with the NY center because it is close to me?
the decision should be based on a combination of cost-effectiveness, customer reach, and your business strategy. Amazon also provides tools and recommendations within the shipping plan creation process to help you choose the most suitable fulfillment center based on your products and location.
When shipping to USA Amazon, find the “Ship From” address field in Shipping plan: plz fill a US address on the west coast, there are higher chances that Amazon will assign a warehouse on the west coast. As the shipping price to West Coast is the cheapest, so it can save shipping costs.
