Preparing Product Units for Fulfilment by Amazon

Which options I have for labeling individual products?

The first time you convert your listings to Fulfilled by Amazon, you will be asked if you want to send us your inventory using existing UPC or EAN barcodes for "Stickerless, Commingled Inventory" or using Amazon labels you affix to the individual units for "Labeled Inventory". In the latter case, the label must cover the original barcode completely.

Commingling your inventory allows Amazon to combine your inventory to inventory belonging to Amazon or to other sellers which is of the same type and condition. When a customer purchases a product from your inventory, we do not physically distinguish your unit from that of other sellers. This enables us to process customer orders more efficiently.

Please note that the "Stickerless, Commingled Inventory" option refers to individual product units, not the shipment; all shipments sent to our fulfillment centers require shipping labels.

Are all products suitable for Stickerless, Commingled Inventory?

No. In order for a product to qualify for Stickerless Commingled Inventory, it must meet the following criteria:

  • It must be a non-media product: books, CD’s, VHS tapes or DVD’s require labels.
  • The product cannot belong to any of these categories:
    • Clothing,
    • Jewelry,
    • Computer components & accessories,
    • Software,
    • Shoes,
    • Sports memorabilia,
    • Watches,
    • Video games or
    • Grocery.
Note: Some items in other product categories might also be restricted from "Stickerless Commingled Inventory".
  • The condition of the product must be "new".
  • The product must have an EAN/UPC in barcode form for our fulfillment centers to scan when they receive the it.
  • Barcodes must be placed on the outside of the product packaging, in an accessible location.
  • The EAN/UPC must map to one single ASIN. If it maps to more than one ASIN, you must label the product, even if it previously qualified as Stickerless, Commingled Inventory.

To prevent delays in processing your inventory, certain other products may not be eligible for Stickerless Commingled Inventory.

Note: Non-EU sellers are not eligible to send Stickerless Commingled Inventory to our fulfillment centers.

For more information, see Stickerless, Commingled Inventory.

How do I print labels for my product units?

When you create a new shipping plan through the Send/Replenish Inventory option in your Manage Inventory page, or when you work on an existing shipping plan which has not yet been completed, you will be guided through each step in the preparation of your shipment to an Amazon fulfillment center. Whenever the inventory requires labeling, you will be able to print product labels. Product labels can also be printed through the Print Item Labels option on the Manage Inventory page. Labels will bear the product title to help you match the label to the correct product.

Blank adhesive labels can be purchased any office supply store or on the Amazon website.

What happens if I mislabel my product units?

If we encounter mislabeled products at our fulfillment centers, we will have to re-label the products correctly to make them available for sale or return them to you. We may charge an Unplanned Service Fee if we do the labeling for you.

Can Amazon label my product units for me?

Yes. When you create a new shipping plan through your Manage Inventory page or you work on an existing shipping plan which has not yet been completed, you will be guided through the preparation of your shipment to an Amazon fulfillment center, and you will be able to choose the Amazon Label Service for each product.

For further details concerning fees for this service, refer to our FBA Pricing page.

What else should I consider when preparing products fulfilled by Amazon?

Each unit you ship to us should be ready for us to pack and ship to your customers. For example, fragile products need to be individually packed with protective material, such as bubble wrap. Otherwise, Amazon will reserve the right to return those units to you.

Refer to the Prepare Products Help page for more information about preparation guidelines. Or if you want to use our Prep Service, see FBA Prep Service.
