Questions & Answers

Q: How can I create a shipping plan for my Amazon FBA products?

To create a shipping plan, log into your Amazon Seller Central account and navigate to "Inventory > Manage FBA Shipments > Send to Amazon." Enter the supplier's address, choose the marketplace, select the listing, and decide on packaging details like individual units or case packed.

Q: Can I label the units myself or should I let Amazon or my supplier do it?

You have the option to choose between labeling the units yourself or having Amazon do it. While Amazon charges a fee for labeling, it may be less expensive to have your supplier or freight forwarder label the boxes for you.

Q: Where can I find the Amazon product barcodes for my FBA products?

After creating the shipping plan, click on "Print All SKU Labels" to download a file with all your barcodes. These are the barcodes that need to be put on each unit of your product before sending them to the Amazon warehouse.

Q: What is the difference between UPC and FNSKU barcodes?

The UPC barcode is obtained from gs1.org and is needed to create your Amazon listing. However, once your listing is created, the only barcode required is the FNSKU barcode, which is the Amazon-specific barcode generated during the shipping plan process.

Q: How do I select the shipping carrier and warehouse for my FBA products?

When creating the shipping plan, select either Amazon's partnered carrier or choose "Other" to use your freight forwarder. The shipment details will display the Amazon warehouse(s) where you need to send your products.

Q: Can I adjust the ship date after creating the shipping plan?

Yes, if you don't know the exact date yet, you can select any date that makes sense initially and later update it. Simply revisit the shipping plan to adjust the ship date as needed.

Q: How can I get the necessary dimensions and weight of the boxes for the shipping plan?

Obtain the dimensions and weight from your supplier, ensuring that they are in the correct units (inches and pounds) as required by Amazon.
