Have been selling on FBA for a couple of months and sent 15 packages and several hundred items to FBA without any problem. I sell clothing and simply send the products to FBA without doing anything to them (ie put new labels on) as they are all listed on Amazon.
However recently had an issue with labels, where Amazon re-labelled a box of all my products. Want to ensure that this doesn’t happen again and all is as smooth as possible.
Should I therefore be printing my own labels and putting new labels on ? I have just tried printing the ‘Print your own labels’ and the bar codes are different from the original ones from the suppliers.
I know this is probably a stupid question, but I’m starting to ramp up selling and want to ensure that I’m doing the correct thing.
If I should be printing my own labels I will go and purchase a laser printer and 27 labels a page stickers today, as I currently use a Deskjet.
Many thanks as always for your help – you are always very helpful on here.
Amazon uses its own barcoding system for its labels so yes the barcode will be different.
It does mean when an item sells your particular item goes out.
I always label our products, knowing its passed our QA checks and is to our specifications. There are some FBA sellers who stick to comingled stock – neither is wrong, just suits particular business preference.
If you wish for Amazon to only sell your stock (rather than mix your stock with other sellers – commingled) then yes you do need to label everything.
The FBA labels should cover the original manufacturers labels so that there are no mistakes when amazon staff scan them.
These labels tell Amazon that they are your stock as well as indicating what the item is. So it is important.
A laser printer is much more preferable to a deskjet and will save you on ink anyway.
