Yes, we can print an Amazon barcode on labels, all you need to do is provide it to us. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) uses barcodes to identify and track inventory throughout the fulfillment process. Each item you send to an Amazon fulfillment center requires a barcode.
There are two kinds of barcodes that you can use to identify your products:
- Manufacturer barcodes (eligible barcodes include GCID, UPC, EAN, JAN, or ISBN)
- Amazon barcodes (ASIN or FNSKU)
By default, seller accounts are set by default to use the manufacturer barcode to track eligible inventory throughout the Amazon fulfillment process. Sellers can change this default barcode preference at any time. Sellers can change their barcode preference for each offer they create, as well as, their barcode preference for a product when they change a listing from Fulfilled by Merchant to Fulfilled by Amazon.
If you won’t be using manufacturer barcodes to track products, then you will be required to use Amazon barcodes. You can print the Amazon barcodes on your own with a thermal or laser printer or a label company like us can print them for you. The Amazon barcodes are available in your seller account. FBA also offers a label service that will print and apply the barcodes for a per-item fee. Visit Amazon’s Seller Central to learn how to use an Amazon barcode to track inventory.
Amazon Barcode Label Requirements
All barcodes must be printed in black ink on white, non-reflective labels with removable adhesive. The product name and condition must appear on the label. Dimensions must be between 1″ x 2″ and 2″ x 3″ (1″ x 3 inches or 2″ x 2″ inches, for example).
Using a manufacturer barcode to sell your products on Amazon
Amazon allows sellers to use their manufacturer barcode to identify and track products. Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) uses barcodes to identify and track inventory throughout the fulfillment process and each item you send to an Amazon fulfillment center requires a barcode.
Product eligibility for tracking with a manufacturer barcode
(If the manufacturer barcode maps to more than one ASIN, an Amazon barcode is required.)
Amazon will identify the products that are not eligible and require an Amazon barcode when you create your offer. Amazon will, at their sole discretion, determine which products meet the eligibility requirements for using manufacturer barcodes. They reserve the right to disqualify products from using manufacturer barcodes that otherwise meet the above requirements.
