Products that do not qualify for Stickerless, Commingled Inventory must have FBA labels in order to be received at Amazon's fulfilment centres. By selecting the Labelling required filter on the Label Products page, you can view the products in your shipping plan that require labels. For products that require labels, you must affix a label to each unit of the product, and the label must cover any existing barcodes.
The Labelling required tab displays a list of all of the products in your shipping plan that require Amazon barcodes. Click All products to see a list of all of the products in your shipment.
Important: Products with eligible UPC or EAN barcodes that may also require an Amazon barcode will not appear in this list. For example, if the UPC or EAN label is obscured by bubble wrap, then an Amazon barcode will still be required, but the product will not appear in this list.
The Who labels column displays information about who will affix Amazon barcodes to the products in your shipping plan.
If Amazon appears in the Who labels column, you are required to use the FBA Label Service, because you either signed up for the FBA Label Service or selected Amazon in the Who preps column of the Prepare Products page. The per-item label fee appears in the Label cost column.
Tip: To change your Who preps selection, return to the Prepare Products page and select Merchant for the products that you want to prep and label yourself.
If Merchant appears in the Who labels column, you are required to label your items yourself. To have Amazon to label your products, select Amazon in the Who preps drop-down list.
Tip: You cannot change your selection once you have approved your shipping plan. To change your selection for approved shipments, you must delete the current shipping plan and start again. To quickly re-create your shipping plan, go to your Shipping Queue and select Deleted/cancelled. Then click the shipping plan that you want to re-create and click Duplicate on the bottom left of the Send/Replenish Inventory page.
After you have reviewed the information on the Label Products page and confirmed that it is correct, create your barcodes by clicking Print labels for this page.
In order to print quality barcodes, make sure that you:
Use the correct label stock for your printer
Use a printer with a resolution of 300 DPI or greater
Test, clean, and replace your printer heads as needed
Periodically test the scannability of your printed barcodes
To create your barcodes:
Select the label stock that you want to use from the drop-down list.
Confirm the number of barcode labels that you want to print for each product or change the number shown in the # of labels to print column.
Click Print labels for this page. A PDF file will be generated that you can open to print your labels immediately or save to print the labels later.
You have several options for printing product labels:
You can print labels from the Label Products page by entering the desired label quantity in the # of labels to print column for each product in your shipping plan and selecting the Print Label button.
You can also print labels from the Amazon-Fulfilled Inventory page. The option is located under the drop-down menu for Apply to # Selected Item(s).
You can print labels from the Manage Inventory page by choosing your products and selecting Print Item Labels from the Actions drop-down menu.
If you have a barcode scanner, then you can use FBA Scan & Ship feature to create labels for your products. Learn more about Scan & Ship.
Tip: You can also print Amazon barcodes from the Manage Inventory page by selecting the products in the left column and then selecting Print Item Labels from the Action on Selected Item(s) drop-down menu.
When you are ready to affix barcodes to your products, make sure that:
You put the correct barcode on each item
You cover all other visible barcodes with the exception of any serial number barcodes
Watch this video demonstrating how to label your products (English only).
Tip: Before shipping products to an Amazon fulfilment centre, confirm that the product barcodes match the ASINs listed on your shipping plan. Amazon fulfilment centres will not receive products with barcodes that do not correlate to the ASINs listed on your shipping plan. If you frequently ship to multiple marketplaces, then make sure that the barcodes on your products are eligible for the marketplaces you are shipping to.
