Shipping Specifications

Two types of labels are required when shipping items to Amazon's fulfillment network:

  • Item label. The label that you place on each individual item that you send to Amazon's fulfillment network. You do not need to place labels on eligible stickerless, commingled inventory. For more information about product eligibility for stickerless, commingled inventory, see the Amazon Seller Central Help for your marketplace.
  • Shipping label. The label that you affix to the outside of each package that you ship to Amazon's fulfillment network.
Note: Amazon recommends that you implement pixel shaving to remove one pixel from each barcode combination. This will increase the readability of the barcode and will not affect its symbology.
