To ensure that you are following Amazon FBA packaging and labeling requirements and avoid noncompliance fees, you can take the following steps:
Understand Amazon’s Requirements:
Familiarize yourself with Amazon’s packaging and labeling requirements to ensure that you are following them correctly. If it seems overwhelming, then consider utilizing a third-party prep service.
Use Proper Packaging Materials:
Use a secure, six-sided box with functional and intact flaps and wrap each item individually with at least two inches of cushioning between each item and the interior of the box.
Use Clear Labels:
Use clear labels with no ink or other smudges that are readable and scannable, and ensure that each label is readable and scannable for a two-year period.
Use Correct Labels:
Use the correct label, ensuring it matches the contents of the shipping box, and ensure that all items are labeled with a barcode, such as a UPC or EAN.
Print Labels Correctly:
Print labels in black and white, with a removable adhesive and non-reflective surface.
Consider Using FBA Prep Services:
Consider using Amazon’s FBA Prep Service or third-party prep centers to ensure that your items are properly prepped before being sent to Amazon’s warehouses.
By taking the necessary steps to follow Amazon’s requirements, sellers can ensure that their products arrive at Amazon’s warehouses promptly and efficiently, ready to be sold to customers.
