Bezos Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not based in the UK, can I work with Bezos?
Absolutely! We work with e-Commerce sellers around the world to fulfil orders from our UK and European fulfilment centres. We offer worldwide delivery for your customers too.
What makes you different to traditional 3PLs?
We build technology to take care of your fulfilment headaches. We focus on the end-to-end fulfilment process, from the moment the order is placed to being delivered to your customer. Unlike traditional 3PLs that just get your orders marked as despatched. Our tech-driven service is scalable due to our network of fulfilment centres and logistic partners so we will always have space to support you as you grow.

There are no hidden fees, we do not charge any integration or setup fees. Bezos has only two fees: a monthly subscription fee for the use of our technology and fulfilment charges for what you use.
