You sell it, we ship it

Amazon’s Multi-Channel Fulfillment (MCF) helps you grow your business by giving you access to Amazon’s world-class fulfillment network, operational expertise, and trusted shipping options for all of your orders, from wherever they’re placed—both on Amazon.com and on other sales channels.


With MCF, you improve customer experience with faster delivery and simplified operations. Store your inventory in our warehouses, and lower your fulfillment costs with Amazon’s competitive rates and scalable capacity.

Fast delivery

Leverage the efficiency and accuracy that powers Amazon Prime. You can offer 1-day, 2-day, or standard (3-5 business day) delivery options.

Simplify operations

Manage your online business from a single inventory source. Let Amazon take care of inventory placement across the U.S., shipping carriers, and fulfillment—all while you focus on your business. 

Instant scalability

Grow your business without increasing your fixed costs. With MCF, you can manage seasonal spikes without additional resources. 

How MCF works

Send all or some of your inventory directly to an Amazon fulfillment center. When customers purchase products on your website or another third-party sales channel, we receive your orders and pick, pack, and ship them directly to your customers.

MCF is available with or without Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). If you do use FBA to sell on Amazon, your existing inventory will serve both Amazon customers and customers from your other sales channels.

“Multi-Channel Fulfillment has simplified our operations and allowed us to grow across multiple direct sales channels without adding supply chain complexity. Amazon’s fast and reliable delivery allows all of our customers to have a best-in-class experience regardless of the site they find us on.”

How is weight calculated?

For Multi-Channel Fulfillment orders, the total shipment weight is used to determine the Outbound Shipping Weight.

  1. Start with either the Unit Weight or the Dimensional Weight*, whichever is greater.
  2. Add the weight for all units in the shipment.
  3. Add a dunnage** factor of 10% for the total shipment weight.
  4. Round the total shipment weight up to the nearest pound for the Outbound Shipping Weight.

* The Dimensional Weight is the Unit volume (based on length x width x height in inches) divided by 194.

** Dunnage covers the packing materials and is calculated as 10% of either the Dimensional Weight or the Unit Weight depending on which is used.

1 Length + Girth Limitations: Units that have a length + girth that exceeds 128" are not eligible for Expedited or Priority shipping methods.
Girth = (2 x Width) + (2 x Height)

2 Multi-Channel Fulfillment Order Handling: Each Oversize Unit is generally sent as a single shipment in its own package; therefore Amazon does not aggregate the fees for multiple Unit orders that include both Standard-Size and Oversize Units. When calculating the fulfillment fees for orders that include Oversize Units, each Oversize Unit in the order is assessed the applicable per unit Order Handling fee.

3 Multi-Channel Fulfillment Weight Handling: Outbound Shipping Weight is calculated by adding a dunnage factor of 10 percent to the combined total of the individual Unit Weight of each Unit in the shipment, then rounding up to the nearest pound. If multiple items are combined into a single package, the Product Size Tier used for the Weight Handling Fee is determined using the dimensions of the Outbound Shipping Package and the Outbound Shipping Weight.

4 Large-screen televisions: Refers to TVs with screens 42" or larger. However, smaller televisions could qualify for the Special Handling fee based on other factors such as weight and how delicate the TV is.
