Jinsu Toy as a professional manufacturer of plush toys, we provide OEM and OEM and ODM for many Amazon merchants. In addition to plush toys, we are also good at producing plush toys and baby toys simulated by wild animals, such as saliva wet towels, baby toys in toys, and babies' front. For these products, if they enter the Amazon warehouse (FBA), Amazon will conduct many reviews.
If you only see some products on Alibaba and make it into a factory according to your requirements, but do not understand Amazon's product sales rules, then you will undoubtedly lose the entire goods.
For businessmen who want to sell on Amazon for the first time, the biggest problem is how to make your products go smoothly and sell safely on Amazon. If you are a businessman who is engaged in plush toys and baby products, then after reading this article, you will understand all the details of the product warehouse. Starting from the factory to buy products, you need to tell the factory how to produce products according to my requirements.
Notice 1: Product certification
Determine the countries and regions you sell on Amazon, because different countries have different tests for testing children's toys and baby products, and tell you as soon as possible to the plush toys manufacturing requirements, because these test requirements are closely related to raw materials and the production process of production processes And the corresponding product cost is also different.
Sales in US & Canada Certification:CPC
The Amazon website of the United States requires all children's toys and children's products to provide children's product certificates (referred to as CPC certificates). Supply, etc., will be required to issue a CPC certificate, otherwise it will not be sold. Although it is called a "certificate", the CPC certificate is not issued by any institution, nor does it need to be submitted to the department.
In essence, it is a "guarantee" drafted by manufacturers/importers and is responsible for itself, and pointed out that its products are in line with all local children's products and other laws and laws and regulations in the United States.

Note : Packing method
Size and weight requirements:
1. Amazon stipulates that a box of parcels cannot exceed 30 kg. This is the compulsory standard set by Amazon according to the efficiency of cargo processing.
The United States is 22 kg. If the weight of a part is exceeded, it is necessary to issue a "overweight" warning sign on the four sides of the carton. (Labels need to be printed in color, no less than 8 cm on each side)
2. The size of any side of the carton cannot exceed 63.5 cm, unless the size of the single cargo exceeds 63.5 cm.
3. Select the size of the carton to ensure the minimum space after putting in the goods. By using multiple software packages in a single case, you can also maximize the spatial utilization rate (as long as it does not damage the product).
4. Put a carton that weighs more than 30 kg on a single tray (a selling item corresponds to a tray), and needs to be placed on all four sides of the carton 9). Furniture) Sale. The warning label must be placed in the appropriate position of all four sides of the carton.
5. FBA requires paste the national standards on the outside box; in order to distinguish the goods. The international style and color shall be implemented in accordance with the requirements of the document "National Flag Patch 9.18 (CS4) transition (1)". The size of the British FBA Headway national standard is a square with a side length of 4 cm. The national standard is pasted on the upper right corner of the narrow side of each box of goods, two.
1. Amazon all over the world has a unified packaging standard for goods, and they all use standard six-sided cartons to package the goods.
2. Do not use damaged shipping boxes (partially or overall damaged) or polluted cartons (large areas painted on the periphery) to package goods.
3. Do not package products in biodegradable packaging.
4. Do not use soft and easily damaged cartons, the packaging must be hard enough to withstand any external pressure during the transportation of the goods.
5. The filling in the carton should not be filled with loose materials (such as foam or shredded paper), and the filling must be made of materials that can be accepted by Amazon. Use large size pads such as air pillows, whole sheets, foam paper or wrap.
6. When using reusable cartons, make sure the box flaps are intact.
7. The carton cannot be fixed or sealed with large staples or nylon fiber tape.
8. When transporting multiple cargo boxes, do not use packing tape, elastic band or other belts to bind the carton.
9. Do not add fillers, protective panels, cardboard, etc. to the periphery of the carton.
10. Unless the size of the carton of a single piece of goods exceeds the standard, the size of any side of the carton shall not exceed 63.5cm.
11. Do not send cartons with the same size as the pallet size.
The goods that are rejected in the warehouse need to be sent back to the original place and repackaged into the warehouse.
Therefore, before shipment, you need to carefully check whether the packaging of your own goods meets the requirements of the destination country, so as to avoid losses caused by rejection
1. Express delivery
The first transportation method of Amazon FBA is four major express delivery: USPS, UPS, FEDEX, DHL (here I recommend only the Express Exprace method to select the Express transportation method in the local overseas warehouse). This method is also delivered with our domestic express train The same, one is the logistics between the country, and the other is the logistics between the domestic location and the place. International Express can deliver goods to customers in the shortest time, and the cost is relatively expensive. If the product is not in a hurry, it is not recommended to use this method, but the clear transportation is still very suitable for certain documents and important samples, which can at least ensure the timeliness of delivery.
2. Air Freight
Air transportation is the first method of Amazon FBA transportation: domestic pickup -from domestic airport -aviation transportation to destination port -delivery to Amazon FBA warehouse is delivered. The timely air transport in the United States is very high, 6-12 working days. However, at the same time, the cost is also very high, mainly involving freight and customs costs, which is very suitable for reservation and supplementation at the peak season of e -commerce.
3. Sea Shipping
Overall, ocean shipping is the slowest mode of logistics at present, and it is also the mode of transportation with the lowest main first-way transportation. The delivery time is about 15-40 working days, and the logistics time is much slower than the other two first-way transportation methods. Therefore, sea freight is also a logistics method with lower tariffs. The shipping volume is large, and because it is a sea voyage, there is basically no need to consider the restrictions caused by the weight of the goods. And the transportation is safe, and the goods can be guaranteed to be stable and not damaged in good sea conditions. In addition, the wide waterway of the sea road extends in all directions, and there is no danger of collision and rollover like car transportation. The biggest feature of ocean shipping is low price, large volume, and safe cargo, which is suitable for non-emergency replenishment.
