UPC and IPQ for multi-packs

For most products listed on Amazon, a multi-pack listing is only allowed for a manufacturer-created pack with its own unique UPC. You must enter an Item Package Quantity (IPQ) for these products.

Examples

There are different UPCs for a single unit and a pack with multiples of that unit. If you create a multi-pack that is not sold by the manufacturer, verify if an ASIN for the multi-pack already exists. If it does exist, match to it accordingly. If the ASIN for the multi-pack doesn't already exist, you must create a new ASIN using its own unique UPC. The examples below illustrate the importance of UPC and IPQ for multi-packs. Non-manufacturer-created multi-pack ASINs cannot be listed as variations of a manufacturer-created multi-pack ASIN. You must either match to an identical multi-pack product detail page or create a new ASIN with a unique UPC.
