Most of these services will add up on your cost around $1-2 depending on your product size and your needs. Even if it looks small amount at the beginning, it may turn out huge money especially for high volume sellers.

Pros: Piece of mind! Most of fba sellers don't trust suppliers especially when they get their products from China. It's because so many sellers suspended due to selling counterfeit item even though it was unintentional. On the other side some sellers got policy warnings, negative product and seller feedback.
