1)How will I know that whether what will be the best location for my house so that I could avail the FBA service?
>>>FBA centre that is near to your home will be better. You can select that one FC centre.
2)Does shipment from China come to my door or I need to pick up from somewhere in Mumbai?
>>>When you start business you start with small stock like 2-3 cartons. For that we suggest you to use international courier companies such as FedEx and DHL.
These companies will take complete responsibility to deliver your product to your doorstep. They will take product from manufacturer, pay customs duty, clear it from the customs and deliver it to you.
When they come to deliver you have to pay the customs duties whatever they have already paid. Also when your product lands in India these companies will ask for your KYC. As KYC you have to provide your personal PAN card if it is proprietorship otherwise provide company PAN card, GST number or GSTIN, Bank statement.
3)Do I need to arrange my own transportation to take my package to Amazon FCs or they pickup the shipment from my house?
FBA process ::
First, you need to create product listing convert it into an FBA. When you decided to convert into FBA then create a ticket in Amazon seller center and ask to convert. Immediately Amazon will start to follow you and guide you in every step.
Picking facility to warehouse ::
>>>Product picking facility for Amazon Fulfilment Centres or FC varies and depend how busy they are, if they asking to bring product then you have to send it to them and then they will store, pack and ship. In case if you want to keep stock at your location then you can keep and upon selling you have to pack it and schedule amazon pickup service to pick, where they will take responsibilities of shipping and delivery. Packing materials you can buy from amazon.in
Once you receive product then inspect it and convert it to FBA using seller central inventory panel. Then Amazon will start to follow you. You have to keep all the product in a carton and specify quality and other details, based on that Amazon will provide you a label that you need to put on carton box. I assume you already getting product with basic individual packing, rest Amazon will do corrugated or polybag based packing based on product type.
