Why sell with Pan-European FBA?

Having a single VAT identification number gives you the flexibility to sell with Pan-European FBA through call-off stock (COS)
COS is made possible due to an EU-wide simplification in the VAT legislation, which allows this type of transaction to occur, so long as certain legislative requirements are met. You only need to have one VAT registration number (VRN) in Germany, France, Italy or Spain to allow eligible ASINs to be stored locally in any of these countries.

What is Pan-European FBA?
Pan-European FBA is a service provided for Amazon selling partners to sell their products to customers across Europe in an easier and faster way. This can help selling partners save on fulfilment costs, offer fast delivery promises and reach a wider audience of customers.
How does Pan-European FBA work?
To sell your FBA products in Amazon's EU stores, you must have access to Seller Central accounts in the following EU stores: France, Germany, Italy and Spain. You must enable placement in at least two of these stores and send your inventory to an Amazon fulfilment centre. Additionally, you can also sell your products in Amazon's new EU stores available in the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and Belgium.

Once you send your products to an EU fulfilment centre, we will store your inventory across our EU fulfilment network in the countries that you have enabled for inventory placement. This is to ensure that your products are available to meet anticipated customer demand. We will distribute your inventory across these countries at no additional cost.

To enjoy domestic FBA fulfilment fees for orders in Sweden and the Netherlands, you must enable placement in Germany. For orders in Belgium, you must enable placement in either Germany or France.
