Meltable FBA inventory

Before listing products with Fulfillment by Amazon, it’s important to know what’s suitable for fulfillment and what isn’t. For information on product requirements and restrictions, see:

Meltable inventory requirements

FBA accepts meltable products from October 16 to April 30 only. Meltable inventory stored or arriving at our fulfillment centers from May 1 to October 15 is marked unfulfillable and disposed of.

“Meltable” refers to heat-sensitive products that are eaten or swallowed, including chocolate, yogurt, gummies, and probiotics.

Products in Amazon fulfillment centers must be able to withstand a minimum temperature of 50°F and a maximum temperature of 120°F during the product’s shelf life without hurting its quality.

Note: If you believe your product should be exempt from the meltable category, provide a letter from the manufacturer confirming that the ASIN can be stored at a maximum temperature of 120°F for extended periods. Send this letter to Seller Support.

Box markings must not display storage temperature requirements unless those requirements explicitly specify a range of 50-120°F.

Products requiring refrigeration, air conditioning, or freezing are prohibited year round. Perishable products, including but not limited to, fresh meats, fruits, or vegetables are also prohibited throughout the year.

To download a list of meltable ASINs, visit this link: Meltable ASINs (Excel).

Removing meltable inventory

Removal orders for meltable inventory must be submitted before May 1 of each year. For more information, see Remove inventory from a fulfillment center.
