In this page, you will learn about the requirements for packaging and using sticky labels for packages to be shipped using Amazon Easy Ship.
The following are the mandatory requirements for packages to be shipped with Amazon Logistics (AMZL).
From June 30, 2019, you will be required to print labels for your Easy Ship orders on sticky paper. The labels should be stuck on the package on a flat surface and the invoice should be put inside the package. You should not cover the label with transparent tape or film. Labels and invoices should not be put in document pouch of polybags.
A sticky label sheet comes in A4 size each with four pre-cut labels. The sheet comes with self-adhesive. You can peel and paste it on your package. You can print 2 labels and 2 invoices on one sheet so you do not need to use four separate sheets. Label and invoice for one order will be printed adjacent to each other allowing you to process two orders in one sheet itself.
Using document pouches for inserting labels is not a secure way of shipping your orders. The invoice and label may slip out leading to loss of packages. Further, if the label is folded or covered, it becomes difficult to scan the barcode of your package leading to delays and losses. This is a poor experience for the buyer which in turn affects your sales. Sticky labels of good quality remain intact throughout the transportation ensuring that the order is delivered in a timely manner. Sticky labels also help you save time in processing orders as you do not need to spend time in cutting A4 sheets or use tapes and adhesives to stick the label.
The labels should be 4 X 6 inches in size, which is equivalent to one-fourth of an A4 sheet or A6 size.
You can buy sticky labels from Amazon recommended vendors Safe Seal and Success Technologies or from your local vendor. These may also be available in your local stationery shop. However, before buying please ensure that the gum is strong so that the label does not come off easily.
Yes, sticky labels can be printed using a regular inkjet or laser printer. Refer Q7 for printer settings.
If you are printing invoice and label only for one order, the pdf generated will already have the label in the correct size. You should print it on a sticky paper and paste the label on the package. Put the invoice inside the package.

Yes, sticky labels are mandatory for all sellers. In case you do not wish to buy the labels in bulk, you can buy from your local vendor or stationery shop. Please ensure that the gum quality is good so that the label does not come off.
From June 30, 2019, our associates will check the package at the time of pickup and your package might be rejected if the labelling guidelines are not adhered to.
Sticky labels will reduce your order processing and packing time, prevent your package from getting lost and prevent delays in transit. Each of these issues create a poor buyer experience which impacts your ratings and performance metrics. Using sticky labels will improve efficiency throughout the system. You may procure sticky labels through your local vendor or stationery store in quantity that is feasible for you. Please ensure that the labels have good gum quality to prevent labels from peeling off in transit.
