Need help and step by step advise and guidance from someone who knows how to use AMAZON FBA - IMPORTING GOODS FROM CHINA TO AMAZON FBA - ADMINISTRATIVE AND LEGAL AND TAX aspects of selling on amazon FBA, clear guidance , such as what software to use, who to contact etc.. actionable guidance I mean. Also I will be primarily selling on my website, and all I need is convenient fulfilment of the orders. I am open to exploring Amazon alternatives. For example shopify-Amazon combo or some other combo. But here is the bottom line: I am not looking for 'creative' ways to increase my expenses or cloud the overall picture. I am looking for the least simple and straightforward and lowest overhead path. I have an unique product and I am not interested in Amazon's 'traffic potential' I am only interested in Fulfilment.
1) when setting up an amazon shipment, they ask for 'ship from' address, which I understand is the address of the forwarding agent in los Angeles. Now the factory in China does not have that address until the vessel is booked, only then will they have the California forwarder's address, from where the goods will be sent to FBA warehouse, they only have their factory address at the moment. How to address this?
2) I dont want to pay Amazon's per item commission or whatver it is called. Per month fee $40 I understand. Per item fulfilment fee I understand as what is charged to customer as 'S&H' cost., or is fulfilment fee something extra on top of the 'S&H' cost?
3) My item is 1.55LB, 13'x 13" x 1.18" and retail price is $25. I need to know what the overhead bites will be, I am zero interest in forking over $10 to amazon , since as my traffic will not come from amazon, but I need automated fulfilment whereby I dont have to run to the post office each time.
4) Taxes: I live in wisconsin, the company is in wisconsin, my legal address is in washington state.
If you can give me clear actionable guidance on all these matters, I would love to work with you (not a lecture on 'why online business is the new trend' , not 'how to make product videos' , not 'how to find great products on amazon'. :)
