Prepare products for shipping with FBA Small and Light

Packaging checklist

  • All ASINs meet program eligibility requirements and have been successfully added (go to your Small & Light Inventory report).
  • Each individual unit must have an Amazon barcode. Products cannot be bundled and they must comply with standard FBA packaging and prep requirements. To be eligible for Amazon to apply an Amazon barcode for you through the FBA Label service, each individual unit must have a single scannable barcode that uniquely identifies the product, such as an EAN, UPC, ISBN, GCID, or JAN.
  • All barcodes must be placed on the outside of the unit in a flat, easily accessible and scannable location. For example, barcodes must not be placed on a corner, curve or seam of the package.
  • Glass and sharp objects are safely packaged to prevent breakage or injury. For more information, go to Packaging glass, ceramic, breakable, and fragile units.
  • Crushable items such as crisps and glass must be properly prepared and packaged so that they are not crushed or broken when shipped. Crushed or broken items will not be received at the fulfillment center. They will be removed or disposed of at your expense.

Shipment checklist

  • Each shipment contains a minimum of 24 units per SKU.
  • Shipment contents match the shipping plan.
  • Shipment does not contain dangerous goods (hazmat) or items that are temperature-sensitive, meltable, or crushable.
  • Each individual sellable unit has an Amazon barcode. Items not properly prepped must be removed or disposed of at your expense. For more information, go to Remove inventory (overview).
  • Items being shipped through FBA Small & Light should not be bundled and must comply with the standard FBA packaging and prep requirements.
  • The shipping box does not weigh more than 23 kg.

Tips for success

  • Do not send shipments with excess inventory. For more information, go to Manage Excess Inventory.
  • Only send shipments to the fulfillment center that are specified on the shipping label.
Note: Through the FBA Label Service, we will apply an Amazon barcode to your Small and Light products. Additionally, you can use the FBA Prep Service to have us package and prep your Small and Light products for fulfillment for a per unit fee. To be eligible for the FBA Label Service, note that each individual unit must have a single scannable barcode (GCID, UPC, EAN, JAN, or ISBN) that uniquely identifies the product.
