FBA Donations program

The FBA Donations program makes it possible for you to automatically donate your unwanted inventory to selected charitable organizations.

How it works

When you request disposal of overstock, returned, or other unwanted FBA inventory, we make it available for donation to selected charities. Amazon makes the arrangements with the charities, helping to remove logistic, language, and cost barriers to donating your inventory. Donating your inventory may allow you to benefit from special VAT exemptions for donations. If a product is not eligible for donation, Amazon will dispose of it in accordance with relevant regulations and safety guidelines. Usual disposal fees apply.


Amazon has entered into partnership with the following charities, which will resell or donate any inventory donated by FBA sellers in France and use the proceeds for their charitable purposes.

You can track donated items in your Amazon VAT Transaction Report. Download the report and look for items marked Donation in the Transaction type field.

Receipts for donations made in the previous year will be available in your Donation certificates page. Receipts are generated based on your business information in Seller Central. To verify or update your account information, go to Business address. Note that we will not be able to reissue your donation receipts.

To ensure compliance with France’s circular-economy regulations, we’re disabling the opt-out functionality of the FBA Donations program for inventory stored in France.

Inventory that is designated for disposal in our French fulfillment centers will be routed for donation through the FBA Donations program. Unfulfillable inventory that you have elected not to have returned to you, and that we determine is eligible for donation, may be affected.

Note: The donation of goods to charities in France that are recognized as foundations or associations of public utility may qualify as zero-rated for VAT. For more information, go to the Bulletin Officiel des Finances Publiques-Impôts, Article BOI-TVA-DED-60-30-20120912: TVA – Droits à déduction – Remise en cause de la déduction: Régularisations - Régularisations de la TVA initialement déduite afférente aux biens autres que les immobilisations et aux services.

It is your responsibility to ensure that any tax reporting obligations for donations are met. Contact your tax advisor for further advice.
