On this page, you will learn how to properly prep products that are breakable or fragile so that they are protected from breaking throughout the fulfillment process.
Fragile Units should be packaged so they will not break and possibly create a safety hazard during storage, shipment preparation, or shipment to the customer. A fragile Unit must be packaged in either a six solid-sided box, or completely secured in bubble wrap, so the Unit is not exposed in any way.
Watch this brief video for examples of how to prep your products for shipment to and storage in Amazon fulfillment centers.
Individually wrap or box all units to prevent damage. For example, in a set of four wine glasses, each individual wine glass must be wrapped.
Box fragile Units with six solid sides, so the Unit is not exposed in any way.
Wrap multiple Units individually to prevent them from damaging one another within their package.
Make sure your packaged Units can pass a 3-foot drop test onto a hard surface without breaking. A drop test consists of five drops:
|Leave empty space in the package, which may lower the chance of the product's ability to pass the 3-foot drop test.|
|Not permitted: The Unit is exposed and unprotected. Parts can snag and break.||Permitted: The Unit is protected with bubble wrap preventing parts from snagging.|
|Recommended cushioning materials|
|Foam sheets||Air pillows|
