How to Import to Amazon Australia

How to Import to Amazon Australia

An easy guide to follow when looking into importing goods into Amazon’s Australia Warehouses of MEL1 & PER2.

About Amazon Australia: 

If you are a new seller on the Amazon Global Marketplaces and are barely getting into the groove of how to fulfill orders on Amazon’s FBA facilities, this guide will help you clarify how to do just that. 

As you consider expanding your selling opportunities into one of Australia’s two FBA warehouses (MEL1- Melbourne or PER2- Perth), you may stumble upon unexpected documental steps in the process. There are two ways in which you can import goods Australia:

  • Import as a foreign entity
  • Register for an Australian Business Number or ABN, along with a Goods and Services Tax or GST


To read this guideline,
please complete the form.

You must provide the following documentation: 

  • Commercial Invoice
  • Packing List
  • Packing Declaration (this identifies whether approved materials have been used for pallets, dunnage, and packaging)
  • Certificate of Origin (this indicates whether the goods are made and exported from a country of a Free Trade Agreement/FTA)

** You must also make sure that any wood packaging, pallet, or product complies with Australia’s wood products and packaging protocol and requirements. 


Once you have checked the aforementioned steps off from your list, you can proceed into shipping to Amazon FBA locations in Australia. 

Follow these steps: 

1. On the “Manage Inventory” page on Amazon’s Seller Central portal, select the product you plan on shipping 

**Put all SKUs you’d like to ship in one single shipment plan- these do not need to broken down according to each SKU. In the case that you do break it down by SKU, Amazon will break down your shipment and distribute it into more fulfillment centers. 

2. In the dropdown menu, select “Send/Replenish Inventory” 

3. Then select Create a New Shipping Plan 

4. Enter a “Ship From” address: 

** Normally this would be the Freight Right warehouse from which your product is to be shipped out. You can find this information while booking with Freight Right. 

5. Then select Continue to Shipping Plan

6. Complete the second part of the shipment creation process

During this process, you can always call to get help from Freight Right’s Amazon specialists, who will gladly walk you through any or all of the steps of this process.
