Doing business with Amazon

Q: While doing wholesale business with Amazon, one buys the product from a seller in another country and then drops it off at Amazon. We shall be advertising the product and Amazon will be responsible for storing, packaging and shipping of the product and it will charge us fee for these services. Is this method of sale correct.

A: If you have instructed Amazon to store, pack and ship the items and they are in turn charging for the labour then it is permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
