Optional customisation - is FBA possible for non custom?


#1

I sell greetings cards with optional customisation. A lot of people don’t choose to customise their cards. Is it possible to sell the non-customised cards through FBA while still being able to offer customisation fulfilled by me, using the same listing for the two options?


#2

No, you can’t offer customisation on FBA.
If you wish, to do FBA, I suggest you create a new listing with the skus and make the 2 options as variations.

You cant have 2 listings with the same SKU


#5

You can - but I think it will have to be on a separate listing altogether (so different EAN/GTIN)
Keep your current one as its setup for customisation
Then create a 2nd listing (will need a different SKU - many people use same SKU but with FBA added to the end). This will be a copy of first listing but with customisation option removed and using a different EAN/GTIN. Send stock into FBA under the 2nd listing.
It MAY be possible to set it up as a variation of the first listing - but usually variations are for differences in size and/or colour and it may get confusing

Thanks, that’s very helpful

I think the best solution is probably what @Simply_NikNaks1 mentioned. It’s pretty much exactly what I did last year when I tried FBA for the first time, and it definitely worked for me! I was already selling fully-customised products fulfilled by me, but then copied the item (which automatically created a different SKU) so I could send popular variations to FBA for them to send out.

Good luck!

Thanks, good to know that it’s been done successfully :slightly_smiling_face:
