Seller Fulfilled Prime is an alternative to Fulfillment by Amazon that allows you to handle your own fulfillment while still selling under the Prime badge. With SFP, you can sell your products with the prime badge directly from your own warehouse. SFP has many incredible benefits for your business, including the ability to sell to Prime customers on Amazon. When you use SFP, you can reach Amazon’s most loyal customers, compete for the buy box, and display the guaranteed delivery date message on your product pages. SFP is ideal for multichannel eCommerce businesses because you can use the same warehouse and fulfillment process for all of your channels without hefty FBA fees. Listing Mirror makes it easy to set up and manage SFP. Here we explain more about how to get started with SFP through Listing Mirror.
Requirements for SFP
Not every seller can qualify for SFP. Just like with FBA, Amazon has certain requirements you must meet to qualify for SFP because they need to make sure you can meet the demands of Prime shoppers quickly and efficiently. In general, to qualify for SFP, you need to provide premium shipping options, ship orders on time, use Amazon Buy Shipping, and agree to Amazon’s policies. You can read Amazon’s full, detailed requirements on their SFP page. Once you qualify, you must then complete an SFP trial period where you demonstrate that you can meet the requirements for Prime fulfillment and customer satisfaction. During the trial period, you will not have the Prime badge. Upon completion of the trial period, you will automatically be enrolled in SFP and display the prime badge.
SFP is a fairly easy process. After you qualify and complete the trial period, you are part of the SFP program. You store inventory in your own warehouse or third-party warehouse. You process orders yourself and purchase the shipping labels from approved carries. Lastly, you pick, pack, and ship your orders the same day, and the carriers collect and deliver orders within two days to the customers.

SFP involves storing inventory and fulfilling orders on your own.
