As a new Amazon seller, finding yourself buried in pallets, stacks of cardboard boxes, and tape is pretty common. You may have lost your garage to inventory and might be spending all your time processing stock instead of running your business. A prep center may be the solution, but fear, worry, or anxiety could be stopping you from contacting the prep center. You know things need to change, and you are aware that your home could not handle the doubling of your business.


Today, we share the advantages of adding a prep center for Amazon FBA sellers. We reveal why communication with your prep center is essential and describe the tasks that a prep center can do. We highlight the questions that you should ask a prep center before committing to one and how a prep center will help you to earn more money per hour. We also explain everything you need to know about packing sizes and product images when you no longer handle inventory.
