Amazon’s Remote Fulfillment program allows Sellers to display their U.S. FBA inventory across both country-specific Amazon sites for Canada and Mexico. Buyers on Amazon Mexico and Amazon Canada are shown the available inventory at your price, plus a premium to cover the import duties. If the buyer chooses to purchase, Amazon uses the Seller’s U.S. based FBA inventory to fulfil all American international orders.
