For shipments going from Canada to the United States, U.S. Customs waives the duties and taxes up to $800 USD per destination per day per person. We charge $2.99 – 11.99 CAD per box to bring shipments destined for Amazon US fulfillment centers across the border from Canada into the U.S. and drop them off at an UPS hub in the Niagara Falls, NY area.

Your shipping plan must be built in your Amazon U.S. seller account with a Ship From address being the U.S. address listed in Step #3 below. Therefore, the shipping charges to the Amazon fulfillment center would be calculated using the Amazon Partnered Carrier rates.

That is the current (very economical and efficient) method used to source items in Canada and sell on Amazon US!

The steps in the process are as follows:

1. When you arrange your shipment with your shipping company or you place your orders with your Canada-based supplier, please define the Ship To address as follows:

To the Toronto location:

Your Name/Company Name

c/o Pauline Prince

380 Alliance Ave Unit 101

Toronto, Ontario

M6N 2H8

Canada

To the Vancouver location:

Your Name/Company Name

c/o Brandon Banks

Unit #105-46197 Fourth Avenue

Chilliwack, BC

V2P 1N3

Canada

2. Log into your account on www.canadaprepandfulfillment.com and complete the Initiate Shipment steps. This will notify us of your order(s) or shipment. If applicable, specify the products and quantities that you wish to remain in storage in our facility.

3. For items to be sold on Amazon.com, create your Amazon Seller Central Shipping Plan in your Amazon U.S. seller account, specifying one of the following Canada Prep and Fulfillment addresses as the Ship From address:

From the Toronto location:

Your Name/Company Name

3105 Pine Ave #5988

Niagara Falls, NY 14301

United States

Canada

From the Vancouver location:

Your Name/Company Name

726 Cherry Street

Sumas, WA 98295-9649

United States

In your shipping plan, please be sure to log the quantity of each item you’re sending. Do not proceed beyond that step in the shipment creation process. Canada Prep will progress the shipping plan onwards to print your product (FNSKU) labels and have Amazon Seller Central decide the fulfillment center destinations, etc. This allows for easy adjustments to your Shipping Plan (if needed) after the prep team has reconciled the products we received versus what you have specified in your shipping plan.

If you need to learn how to create a Shipping Plan in Amazon Seller Central, here’s the Amazon Seller University tutorial series for that: https://canadaprepandfulfillment.com/creating-fba-shipments/

4. Once your entire shipment has been received at the Canada Prep and Fulfillment warehouse, we will reconcile the box contents against your Amazon Seller Central Shipping Plan (or FBA Shipment ID) to ensure we received all the items you intended to send. We will notify you of the outcome of the reconciliation.

5. If you haven’t already done so, grant us User Permissions to your Seller Central shipping functions. Our access would be limited to only those functions allowing us to complete your shipments for you (so we wouldn’t have to exchange the product labels, Amazon fulfillment center info, weight and dimensions or shipping labels via email).

Send a User Permission invitation to canada@canadaprepandfulfillment.com.

We will then accept your invitation. And, as the final step, we’ll ask you to grant us “View & Edit” permissions to the functions listed under the “Inventory” section of the User Permissions page.

If needed, here’s the Amazon Seller University tutorial on assigning user permissions: https://youtu.be/r5jZ1rOfw34.

6. Our team will prep and pack your items.

7. For Amazon U.S.-destined shipments, your boxes will be transported across the border into the United States and dropped off at an UPS location for delivery to the designated Amazon Fulfillment Center(s).
