From the site: "Amazon Fulfillment Web Service (Amazon FWS) allows merchants to access Amazon.com’s world-class fulfillment capabilities through a simple web services interface. Merchants can programmatically send order information to Amazon with instructions to physically fulfill customer orders on their behalf."

Answer to your second question: No. The fact that it is a fulfillment service means they are providing the warehouse as well as teh pick, pack, and ship service.

They do this to control shipping costs so they can have better free shpping offers as well as offer more products through amazon.com Prime accounts.
