The key to understand is that everything about your customer’s e-commerce experience on your site is still handled by WooCommerce. NS FBA doesn’t duplicate or replace any functionality from payment gateways to coupons to checkout to even shipping methods (see more on mapping Amazon shipping speeds to WooCommerce shipping methods here: https://neversettle.it/documentation/ns-fba-woocommerce/how-to-use-shipping-speeds-woocommerce-fba/ ). Because of this, NS FBA is compatible with any WooCommerce extension including payment methods.
The way NS FBA works is that it silently monitors WooCommerce in the background and detects when an order has been completed and paid for. Then, it takes that order information and looks for products that you have set to fulfill with Amazon. It will send the data for those products by SKU along with the order information like shipping address to Amazon Fulfillment where FBA then takes over and ships the items. NS FBA will detect any errors with the FBA shipping request like if a SKU is out of stock in Amazon, create an Order Note about the issue, and send you an email about the problem.
Amazon Fulfillment only offers 3 different shipping speeds categories to external sites through the FBA / MWS API: Normal, Expedited, and Priority. These are general shipping categories and do not necessarily equate to a specific shipping method traditional provided by the actual carriers. Each one might have different fees associated with them, so be sure to check Amazon’s definitions and terms for FBA shipping speed categories for multi-channel fulfillment.
Our NS FBA plugin allows you to define mappings for WooCommerce shipping methods to those Amazon shipping speed categories. The following article goes more detail, but the bottom line is that NS FBA makes it easy and simple to link any shipping methods you have set up in WooCommerce to Amazon’s pre-defined shipping speeds:
The products that are set to fulfill by Amazon will get sent to Amazon, and the rest will need to be fulfilled manually. The overall order status will still be Partial to FBA (assuming the FBA items were successfully accepted by Amazon for fulfillment), which lets you know that you need to take action on the manual items. The order notes will contain updates including a link to the order log. See our NS FBA documentation for additional details.
YES! NS FBA supports ALL Amazon Regions where FBA is available. Fulfillment by Amazon is organized worldwide by region. NS FBA can connect to any of Amazon’s regional servers. You configure this in the plugin settings along with your Amazon MWS credentials for your region, seller ID, and marketplace ID.

Best customer support ever! Really works!
I use NS FBA for my WooCommerce site and I highly recommend it.
When I signed up last year, it was the only synch option I could find for WooCommerce. I think Stitch Labs may have one now as well.
But this was a godsend for me. The inventory synch works without issue, and the transmission of orders from WooCommerce to Amazon FBA works seamlessly. Also, Andrew (who created it I believe) is very helpful and fast with support.
Great plugin and great support, when you have questions!
Amazing plugin at such a great price! The plugin is easy to use and they provide a great video if you have any questions. Not only did they provide an amazing product, but their support is amazing as well. They’re very personable and easy to work with.
I have been waiting for one year to find such a plugin, and there it is.
Not only the plugin works very well (and I had other experiences on other platforms, trying to sync inventories with FBA that were not conclusive at all), and is very easy to set up. My 1800+ SKUs inventory across 4 websites and 3 FBA warehouses is always synced.
The best part is, customer service is outstanding, and tech support very reactive – and pro-active.
Can not wait till these guys release other tools for e-merchants!
We were a long-time FBA merchant and desired an “off Amazon” prescence with a lot more control of our brand. WooCommerce was the preferred cart but we had no idea how to automatically get orders to FBA. Several days of searching led us to NS FBA and at first we thought someone was playing a cruel joke – could it really be as simple as installing a plugin? YES, it is! And it’s truly seamless – orders come into Woo, get sent to FBA, inventory #’s get updated, customers are happy, we are happy. What’s even more incredible, the NS team was so proactive in adding features, it’s almost like we had our own dev team. These guys are beyond helpful/talented and it shows up in their work. Our business has grown substantially thanks to NS FBA and we are exteremly grateful. -The team at HealthNaturally.me
This plugin is EXACTLY what I needed for my website! Amazon FBA is a no-brainer for companies with products to ship, but logistics and shipping discounts to be desired, and WooCommerce lacks any integration with FBA out of the box. After scouring the internet, NSFBA is the only solution I have found that lets me select which products I want fulfilled though FBA, and map corresponding FBA shipping methods to the WooCommerce shipping options. Nice and simple, and it works flawlessly. The thoughtful responses and quick updates I received from Andrew are icing on the cake!
