I am going to start Amazon FBA. I have found a supplier for the selected product. If everything goes fine, items will be shipped to Amazon US next month. Now here comes the confusing part! I live outside of US, don’t have any LLC or US bank account. I also don’t own any company in my home country! I have a few questions regarding the shipment procedure.
- As a foreign individual, without owning a company, can I import products to US? As far I can understand, I’ll be the importer of record and consignee. In both cases, I’ll use my non-US resident address. I’ll also need US custom assigned importer number, right?
- I have read ultimate consignee must be an US company/ person with EIN number. Is it possible to assign Amazon warehouse address with their EIN number as the ultimate consignee?
- For freight forwarding, do you recommend Freightos? Do they handle all the custom works for the customers?
Please correct me if I’m wrong. I will be grateful to you.
I don’t live in the US either and I don’t have a US company either. However, since you are starting an Amazon business it’s probably smart to register a business in your country.
I also use the AMZ warehouse as the consignee. You don’t need an EIN number.
Yes I recommend Freightos, they will help you with all this kinda stuff.
