FBA Small and Light

FBA Small and Light helps reduce the cost of fulfilling orders for small and lightweight FBA inventory priced at 1,000 JPY or less. The program offers are Prime-eligible. The program is available with Free Shipping for Prime customers and Standard Shipping for non-Prime customers (Small and Light does not offer same day nor scheduled delivery). This program offers lower fulfillment fees versus standard FBA fulfillment fees on comparable products.

Product eligibility

The program is only open to Sellers/ASINs approved for this program by Amazon. ASINs must meet the following criteria at the minimum:

  • weigh 1 kg or less
  • have dimensions less than or equal to 3.3 x 30.0 x 35.0cm
  • are priced 1,000 JPY or less (after all discounts)
  • are not adult products
  • are not FBA prohibited products
  • are not dangerous goods (hazmat) (including lithium batteries and products that ship with lithium batteries)
  • are not alcohol products
  • are not temperature-sensitive (such as chocolates)
  • are not used condition products

In addition, Amazon will also determine Seller/ASIN eligibility based on other factors including sales performance and product quality metrics. Sellers may suggest qualified ASINs that they want to enroll in the program for approval by visiting the Small and Light product enrollment page.

Product enrollment

Enroll eligible products through the Small and Light product enrollment page. Here are some tips:

  • Make sure that package dimensions and weights have been entered in Seller Central before enrollment.
  • Remove extra spaces before and after your MSKUs to prevent upload errors.
  • Make sure that you have entered MSKUs, not ASINs, into the enrollment file.
  • Always review your Processing reports for errors (for Professional selling plans only).
