FBA Small and Light helps reduce the cost of fulfilling orders for small and lightweight FBA inventory priced under €10 (including VAT).
When you join this program, your participating offers will be available to Prime members with free delivery, and standard delivery for non-Prime customers with free delivery on orders over €25.
Small and Light is subject to the FBA Small and Light Terms and Conditions.
FBA Small and Light is only open to Amazon-approved ASINs that are in new condition, have dimensions less than 33.4 cm x 23.4 cm x 2.5 cm, weigh less than 219 g, and are priced at €10 (including VAT) or less.
The product types listed below are not eligible (crushable products such as potato chips and glass, are eligible as long as they are properly packaged).
Enrol eligible products through the Small and Light product enrolment page. Here are some tips:
FBA Small and Light has its own prep-and-packing requirements and uses specific fulfillment centers. See our Prep and packaging guide and ship your products to the fulfillment center specified by Amazon. A minimum of 24 units per ASIN must be sent in each shipment.
All Small and Light units must have an FBA label in order to be received at fulfillment centers. Failure to follow the Small and Light packaging and prep policies can result in your stock being moved to unfulfillable status. Unfulfillable or unsellable inventory will require a removal order where standard FBA removal fees apply. If you do not remove this inventory after 30 days of being identified as unfulfillable or unsellable, Amazon may dispose of it. For more information, see required removals.
Through the FBA Label Service, we'll apply an Amazon barcode to your Small and Light products for a per-unit fee. Additionally, you can use the FBA Prep Service to have us package and prep your Small and Light products for fulfillment.
For products labeled by Amazon, you must ensure that each unit has a single, scannable barcode that uniquely identifies the product prior to sending your inventory, such as an EAN, UPC, ISBN, GCID or JAN. For more information, visit FBA Label Service.
For products that you label yourself, you must affix a label to each unit, and the label must cover any existing barcodes. For more information, visit Label products.

Yes. You can have an FBA Small and Light offer and an offer in the standard FBA Program on the same product; however, please ensure that your Program offer is priced competitively, relative to your MFN offer. Customers trust that they will find low prices on Amazon. Consistent with maintaining that trust, higher priced FBA Small and Light offers may not win the Buy Box. For more information, please see General Pricing Rule and The Buy Box.
To use an MSKU for Small and Light, you must have one that is based on an offer in FBA. Enrol your seller-fulfilled offer in Small and Light and then convert it to FBA.
If you want both Small and Light and seller-fulfilled offers, we recommend creating a separate offer for each so that you have two MSKUs: one for Small and Light and one seller-fulfilled. Update or create multiple offers at once using the Inventory Loader tool.
If you have offers that use manufacturer barcodes for tracking, create a new seller-fulfilled MSKU and enroll the MSKU into Small and Light using the enrollment page. For help creating a new offer – See Start selling: List and manage inventory.
Once the MSKU is enrolled, our system will automatically convert your MSKU into a Small and Light offer. Each unit must be individually sitckered with an Amazon barcode - See our Small and Light prep and packaging guide.
Yes, Small and Light accepts expiration-dated products, but temperature-sensitive products (like chocolates) are not accepted. Small and Light follows the standard FBA requirements for expiration-dated inventory.
Products sent to Amazon must have a remaining shelf life greater than 105 days from the time of receipt by Amazon. Units that are within 50 days of the expiration date will be removed for disposal by Amazon. Units subject to disposal will not be available for return.
When shipping expiration-dated products to Amazon, make sure that each box has only one expiration date per product. Multiple units of the same product can be shipped together if all units have the same expiration date and are bagged or bundled together.
You can create a removal order in Seller Central to remove your Small and Light inventory, just as you would for standard FBA inventory. Small and Light has a minimum removal fee of €0.25 a unit. Normally, removals (returns and disposals) can take 10 to 14 business days to pick, pack, and process. However, removal times may increase to 30 days or more during peak removal periods, which occur in February, March, August, and September. For more information, visit Remove inventory from a fulfillment center.
