Packaging Plush Units

Policies and Requirements Features and Fees Managing FBA Inventory Business Analytics Resources
On this page, you will learn how to properly prep products that are plush so that they are protected from dust or damage throughout the fulfillment process.

IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal of inventory at the Amazon fulfillment center, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future shipments to the fulfillment center, or charging for preparation or for noncompliance at the fulfillment center.

Package plush Units, such as stuffed toys, animals, and puppets, so they will not be damaged during receipt, stocking, shipment preparation, or shipment to the customer. Units must be placed in a sealed poly bag or shrink-wrapped.
