How important is it to include the item description on FNSKU labels? I've always done it, but what if I update my title? What if I just leave it off the label completely? Anyone ever use a modified version of what amazon provides?

Amazon actually tells you in help what type of code system to use if you’re not printing from SC. Alternative barcode generators typically only print the barcode and whatever numbers you enter.

I only have those two pieces of data on our product label.

It depends if you want to take a chance or not. Depending on your product packaging, in some cases like if you are just sticking a label on a poly bag it does really make that much difference, so leave it alone.

But if you have designed a really nice label for a box or bottle etc the description below the bar code looks really tacky and most of the time I remove it. It does create a much more professional looking product for sure.

However beware, if you get a super picky person who receives the shipment at Amazon FBA or maybe an Amazon audit check your label can be determined to be non compliant. In which case you will then have to pay $0.20 per unit to have a sticky label slapped on your product. Yes this does happen, I know people that it has happened to. But it does seem most of the time you get away with it.

“Printing barcodes directly on Units: If you would like to print barcodes directly on Units, use the UCC128 barcode. The UCC128 barcode standards are available on the Internet. Amazon uses the UCC128 barcode (font) to encode the FNSKU or the Shipment ID in the barcode. We don’t use any leading or trailing digits (application identifiers or checksum digits.) The full specification is UCC128 code set A (this is the code set that supports alphanumeric data). If you are building the barcode from scratch, you can review the standards or purchase software (there are many barcode applications available for free or at reasonable prices).”https://sellercentral.amazon.com/gp/help/200141490
