FBA Donations program

The FBA Donations program makes it possible for you to automatically donate your unwanted inventory to selected charitable organizations in Japan.

How it works

When you request disposal of eligible overstock, returned, or other unwanted FBA inventory in fulfillment centers in Japan, it will become available to selected charities in Japan. The donating party will be sellers, not Amazon, and any eligible products will be sent by Amazon on behalf of sellers to the Amazon selected charities in Japan. Sellers who do not wish to join the program may opt-out from the program at any time. Note that all sellers will be enrolled to the program automatically by default and must choose to opt-out if they do not wish to take part in the program. For more information on opting-out, see the “Opting-out” section below.

Even if participating to our Donations Program, our usual disposal fees apply.

Eligible products

The eligibility of an ASIN for donation is subject to legal, safety, and regulatory guidelines, in addition to charity location, interest, and need.

If a product is not eligible for donation, Amazon will dispose of it in accordance with relevant regulations and safety guidelines.

Products not eligible for donation include the following:

  • Hazardous and dangerous goods
  • Prohibited and restricted products
  • Recalled products
  • Products with internal memory
  • Counterfeit products
  • Products with safety concerns and/or regulatory concerns
  • Any other products that may be defective or inappropriate for donation

Japan program partner

Amazon is partnering with charities to distribute donated FBA inventory across their diverse network of Japanese nonprofits, which support people in need. The donated inventory will be used by charities for different initiatives including direct distribution to people in need and reselling for fund raising.

The following table provides links to get more information on the charities we are partnering with. The charities listed in the table may change from time to time without prior notice. By agreeing to join the program, you will be deemed to have agreed to such term.

Opting-out

You are enrolled in the FBA Donations program by default. You can verify your enrollment status by going to Settings > Fulfillment by Amazon > FBA Donations program. When you're enrolled in the program, Amazon will evaluate all of your eligible product disposals for donation.

You can choose to opt out of the FBA Donations program at any time by disabling it in your FBA settings. Disposals made after you opt out will no longer be eligible for the donations program.

Note that you may only choose to opt out for all items subject to donation and may not opt out partially.

Reporting

You can track donated items in your Removal Shipment Detail report. Download the report and look for items marked Donation in the Carrier Name field.

Note that there will be a time lag by one day until the data is fully reflected on the system.
