FBA Small and Light

FBA Small and Light helps reduce the cost of fulfilling orders for small and lightweight FBA inventory priced under $7. Program products are Prime-eligible with standard shipping for Prime customers (3 to 5 business days) and free shipping for non-Prime customers (6 to 8 business days).

Small and Light is subject to the FBA Small and Light Terms and Conditions.

Product eligibility

Only products in new condition that measure 16 x 9 x 4 inches or less, weigh 10 oz or less, and are priced at $7 or less are eligible for Small and Light.

The product types below are not eligible. (Crushable products, such as potato chips and glass, are eligible as long as they are properly packaged.)

Note: Small and Light offers enrolled before July 26, 2019, that are still priced above $7 and weigh more than 10 oz will be allowed to remain under the Small and Light fee structure until April 30, 2020. Offers enrolled on or after July 26, 2019, must be priced at $7 or less and weigh 10 oz or less.

Product enrollment

Enroll eligible products through the Small and Light product enrollment page. Here are some tips:

  • Make sure that package dimensions and weights have been entered in Seller Central before enrollment.
  • Remove extra spaces before and after your MSKUs to prevent upload errors.
  • Make sure that you have entered MSKUs, not ASINs, into the enrollment file.
  • Always review your Processing reports for errors (for Professional selling plans only).

For help creating new MSKUs for Small and Light, download our offer creation guide. For more information about product enrollment, download our enrollment guide. Chinese versions of both guides also are available:

Shipping Small and Light inventory to Amazon

FBA Small and Light has its own prep-and-packing requirements and uses specific fulfillment centers. See our Prep and packaging guide and ship your products to the fulfillment center specified by Amazon. A minimum of 24 units per ASIN must be sent in each shipment.

If you have a China-based vendor, manufacturer, or warehouse partner, you can download a Chinese version of the prep-and-packing guide.

Program fees

Except for the fees below, all standard selling on Amazon fees and FBA fees apply to Small and Light.

The fulfillment fees for the program are as follows:

Size Weight1 Fulfillment fee per unit2

FBA Label Service for Small and Light items: The FBA Label Service fee for Small and Light items is $0.10 per unit. For more information on this optional service, refer to FBA Label Service.

1The packaging weight is the weight of the box and packing materials. In FBA Small and Light, we use a standardized packaging weight of 0.7 oz for every package. In FBA, Amazon uses a standardized packaging weight of 4 oz for standard-size packages.

2Small and Light offers enrolled before July 26, 2019, that are still priced above $7 and weigh more than 10 oz will be allowed to remain under the Small and Light fee structure until April 30, 2020. Offers enrolled on or after July 26, 2019, must be priced at $7 or less and weigh 10 oz or less.

Note: Some Small and Light products that are priced $5 or under and belong to the Consumables category (Beauty, Health & Personal Care, Grocery, Baby—but not Apparel) are eligible for a 5% price discount if a customer orders two or more units of the same item. FBA covers the cost of the discount. This won’t change what you’re paid for your items, and the discount won’t appear on your payment reports. No action is required by you to receive the discount.

Troubleshooting

You may see an error message when you try to enroll an item in Small and Light if your submission is missing information or if the product isn’t eligible.

See Small and Light error messages for more information about common errors and how to fix them.

Frequently asked questions


  1. What happens if the price of one of my Small and Light enrolled products increases above $7?

    Starting May 1, 2020, all items above 10 oz or $7 will be converted to standard FBA and subject to FBA fulfillment fees.

  2. How do I disenroll offers from Small and Light?

    Before disenrolling offers, make sure there is no inventory left in Small and Light. Go to Remove products from the Small and Light program to disenroll your offers.

    For details on how to remove inventory, see Remove inventory from a fulfillment center.

  3. How are Small and Light offers shown to customers?

    The customer delivery promise will say “Free Delivery by [DATE] for Prime members” when customers search for products.

  4. Why do I see a promotional discount for my offers if I didn’t offer one?

    Some Small and Light products priced $5 or under and belonging to the Consumables category (i.e. Beauty, Health & Personal Care, Grocery, Baby – excluding Apparel) may be eligible for a 5% price discount if the customer orders two or more units of the same item. FBA covers the cost of the discount – it won't change what you're paid for your items. No action is required by you to participate in the promotion.

  5. Can I offer a product in both FBA Small and Light and the standard FBA program?

    Yes. You can have an FBA Small and Light offer and an offer in the standard FBA program on the same product. If you want to have offers in both programs, note that fulfillment through FBA Small and Light and through standard FBA require different processes. For instructions on creating offers in both programs, please see our Creating offers in both FBA Small and Light and standard FBA.

  6. Can I offer a product through FBA Small and Light and also fulfill it myself?

    Yes. You can have an FBA Small and Light offer and a seller-fulfilled offer on the same product.

  7. Can I use my existing MSKU when shipping FBA Small and Light units to a fulfillment center?

    To use an MSKU for Small and Light, you must have one that is based on an offer in FBA. Enroll your seller-fulfilled offer in Small and Light and then convert it to FBA.

    If you want both Small and Light and seller-fulfilled offers, we recommend creating a separate offer for each so that you have two MSKUs: one for Small and Light and one seller-fulfilled. Update or create multiple offers at once using the Inventory Loader tool.

  8. Are my existing FBA offers that use manufacturer barcodes for tracking, eligible for enrollment?

    If you have offers that use manufacturer barcodes for tracking, create a new seller-fulfilled MSKU and enroll the MSKU into Small and Light using the enrollment page. For help creating a new offer, download our step-by-step guide. Once the MSKU is enrolled, our system will automatically convert your MSKU into a Small and Light offer. Each unit must have a scannable barcode (UPC/EAN/FNSKU) or be individually stickered (if no barcode is available or if the barcode applies to more than one product).

  9. Are expiration-dated products allowed in Small and Light?

    Yes, Small and Light accepts expiration-dated products, but temperature-sensitive products (like chocolates) are not accepted. Small and Light follows the standard FBA requirements for expiration-dated inventory.

    Products sent to Amazon must have a remaining shelf life greater than 105 days from the time of receipt by Amazon. Units that are within 50 days of the expiration date will be removed for disposal by Amazon. Units subject to disposal will not be available for return.

    When shipping expiration-dated products to Amazon, make sure that each box has only one expiration date per product. Multiple units of the same product can be shipped together if all units have the same expiration date and are bagged or bundled together.

  10. How do I remove my Small and Light inventory from Amazon’s fulfillment centers?

    You can create a removal order in Seller Central to remove your Small and Light inventory, just as you would for standard FBA inventory. Small and Light removal and disposal order fees are the same as standard FBA removal order fees. For more information, visit Remove inventory from a fulfillment center.

  11. When will I get paid for my sales?

    Sales for Small and Light items are treated just like standard FBA sales, and proceeds will be distributed at the same frequency. For more information, go to Getting Paid FAQ.

  12. Can I use Small and Light for products that I sell on channels other than Amazon?

    No. Small and Light can be used only to fulfill Amazon orders.

  13. What reports are available to track my inventory and sales?

    For sales and inventory data, consult FBA reports such as the Amazon-Fulfilled Shipments and Inventory reports. To find them, go to Amazon Fulfillment Reports in Seller Central.

  14. What about customer service for my orders in Small and Light?

    We provide fulfillment and customer service for your orders, including customer returns.

  15. Is there a way to set up restock notifications for my Small and Light inventory?

    Yes. You can set inventory replenishment alerts for your Small and Light inventory. For more information, see our replenishment alerts guide.

  16. How do I get the best results with Small and Light?

    • Enroll products that you fulfill yourself.
    • Ensure that you are priced competitively.
    • Use replenishment alerts to avoid lost sales from running out of inventory.

  17. Does the program offer customer returns?

    Yes, with Small and Light, Amazon provides fulfillment and customer service for your orders, including processing customer returns. For information on how Small and Light refunds and reimbursements will be applied to your account, visit FBA customer returns policy. Note that to ensure a great customer experience we may accept returns beyond the timeframe stated in these policies.

  18. Is Small and Light part of the Add-on program?

    No. Small and Light offers free shipping with no minimum purchase requirement.

  19. What does the FBA Small and Light option do in the Convert to FBA page?

    If you select your Fulfillment Program to FBA Small and Light, your offer (MSKU) will be enrolled to be fulfilled by the FBA Small and Light Program.

  20. Is there different eligibility criteria for enrollment into Small and Light vs. the bulk file upload tool?
