Amazon MWS Documentation

Provide battery and dangerous goods information

Before you can convert a listing to Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) you need to provide additional information on any products that are batteries, contain or are sold with batteries, or may be considered dangerous goods (also called hazardous materials or Hazmat). Any attempt to convert a listing to FBA before providing battery and dangerous goods information will fail.

  • For batteries and products containing or sold with batteries. Provide descriptive characteristics such as battery composition (e.g., lithium ion, alkaline, etc.) and the number of batteries.
  • For products considered dangerous goods. Provide additional information to identify characteristics of the product such as flammability or corrosiveness that would indicate the transportation classification (UN Number).

For more information about this policy, see Dangerous goods identification guide.

For more information about creating listings for FBA inventory see Step 1 - Create a listing and convert it to FBA.
