Set quantity for shipment to Amazon

Once you have selected products that you want to send to Amazon, you are ready to specify how many of each product you plan to include in your shipment.

Setting the quantity of products for shipment is the first step in the six-step shipment creation process.


  1. Set quantity for shipment to Amazon
  2. Prepare your products for FBA shipping
  3. Label products
  4. Review/view shipments to Amazon
  5. Prepare shipment to Amazon
  6. Summary of shipment process

Note: If you have not selected your products, go back to Select products on the Send FBA inventory to Amazon page.

To set the quantity of products to ship to Amazon:

  1. Enter quantity in the Units box.
  2. Click Continue.

You can also use the Set Quantity page to add products to your inventory, add and remove products from your shipping plan, update incomplete offers, and duplicate or delete the current shipping plan in the Set Quantity page.

All products

The All products tab displays a list of all of the products that you have selected to include in your shipping plan.

To add additional products to your shipping plan:


  1. Click Add Products at the right of the page.
  2. Type the product name, ASIN, or SKU in the text box, and click Search my inventory.
    Important: You can only search for inventory that is fulfilled by Amazon. Inventory you fulfill yourself is not searchable.
  3. For each product in the list that you want to add, click Add Product.

Information required

The Information required tab appears only if you have added products to your plan that require additional information. If the Information required tab appears, click it to review any information that must be added before completing your shipping plan.

Removal required

The Removal required tab lists products that must be removed before completing your shipping plan. Click the tab to review any products that must be removed before completing your shipping plan.

Important: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal, disposal, or return of inventory upon reception at the fulfillment center, the blocking of future shipments, or an additional charge for additional preparation or non-compliance.

Remove products from your plan by clicking X in the Remove column.

Action recommended alert

The Action recommended alert will appear if you have included products in your shipment that we have identified as slow-moving, meaning they are unlikely to sell in a timely manner. We recommend that you remove these products from the shipment. However, if you would still like to include these products, you can check the box to acknowledge the alert and continue creating the shipment.

Excess inventory alert

The Excess inventory alert will appear if you have included products in your shipment that we have identified as excess inventory, meaning that you currently have more than the recommended number of units in stock. We recommend removing these products from your shipment and taking action to reduce your excess inventory by visiting your Manage Excess Inventory page. However, if you would still like to send these products to Amazon, you can check the box to acknowledge the alert and continue creating the shipment.

Duplicate or delete a plan

If you send in the same products on a regular basis, you can save time by duplicating a previous plan and making adjustments. To duplicate a plan, click Duplicate and then select the plan you want to copy.

You can delete a plan you’re working on by clicking Delete.

Next steps

After you have made all of the adjustments that you want to make, click Continue.
