What is Multi Channel Fulfillment MCF and what are the MCF shipping cost?
What is the Multi Channel Fulfillment program (MCF) and how much is shipping?
The Multi Channel Fulfillment program (MCF) is a Amazon program. Keep in mind that when you sell your FBA products on another channel like Shopify you are no longer using the traditional FBA program with Amazon. When you sell your FBA products on another channel Amazon no longer collects a referral fee from your sells!
This also means Amazon is not making as much money off of your Shopify orders so they will take away certain perks. For Example: Shopify customers will not receive ‘Prime’ Free shipping on your Shopify site! Also, with the MCF program Amazon will not ship your products outside of the country that the products are stored in. This is an Amazon rule, not ours.
For example, products that are stored in the US can only be shipped inside of the US. This is the same for Mexico, Canada, Australia, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The only location that is different is Europe. If you have products stored in either France, Spain, Italy, or Germany you actually are able to ship to the following locations. Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, and Swede.
