Amazon systems are barcode-driven. Each product you send to a fulfillment center requires a barcode so that it can be tracked throughout the fulfillment process.

Label Products is the third step in the six-step shipment creation process:


  1. Set quantity for shipment to Amazon
  2. Prepare your products for FBA shipping
  3. Label products
  4. Review shipments to Amazon
  5. Prepare shipment to Amazon
  6. Summary of shipment process

Label products

Products that do not qualify for Stickerless, Commingled Inventory must have FBA labels in order to be received at Amazon's fulfillment centers. By selecting the Labeling 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.

Print labels

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 Inventory Amazon Fulfills page. The option is located under the drop-down menu for Action on # Selected.
  • 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, you can use FBA Scan & Ship feature to create labels for your products. Learn more about Scan & Ship.

If you have selected Amazon in the Who prepares? column of the Prepare Products page for a given product, then you will be required to use the FBA Label Service, and "Amazon" will be automatically applied to the Who labels? column. If you are prepping a product yourself, then you may still use Amazon Labeling by selecting "Amazon" in the Who labels? column on the Label Products page. Labeling fees will apply to all units that Amazon labels.

Amazon can only label products that have an product identifier (UPC, EAN or JAN) on the product itself. See FBA Label Service for additional information and fees.

Tip: Before shipping products to a fulfillment center, confirm that the product barcodes match the ASINs listed on your shipping plan. Fulfillment centers 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, make sure that the barcodes on your products are eligible for the marketplaces you are shipping to.
