Each carton in an Amazon shipment must have the proper Amazon label attached. This makes sure that it arrives safely and quickly to the correct Amazon fulfillment center.
You can print shipment labels from within the Amazon Shipment Creation Workflow or, if you already created the shipment, from your Amazon shipping queue.
Be sure to read the Amazon specifications about label placement - for example, the entire label must be visible, and no other bar codes should be visible on the carton. Also, labels should only be put on a flat surface of the box, like the side or top- avoid the seams or corners so that the barcode is clear.
If you’re shipping boxes, each box needs its own label. If you’ve got enough boxes to ship a pallet, you need four additional labels, one in the center of each pallet side.
Who Labels the Boxes?
Alternatively, if you aren't sure whether your supplier can properly handle the labeling, our freight forwarders can label your boxes for a fee before sending them to Amazon’s warehouses. In this case the freight forwarder will need to palletize your shipment after its labeled, also for an additional fee. Palletization fees do not apply if you ship via small parcel delivery (i.e., UPS).
