This page provides instructions on how to create a new listing that uses virtual tracking, which relies on the manufacturer barcode. If you want to make changes to existing product listings, visit How to switch from using Amazon barcodes to manufacturer barcodes.
By default, your seller account is set to use the manufacturer barcode to track your eligible inventory throughout the Amazon fulfillment process. You can change barcode settings for any new shipment that you create and inventory not yet received at Amazon fulfillment centers.
When using manufacturer barcodes, products must meet eligibility requirements listed on Using FBA virtual tracking. In addition, for products that are approved by the Amazon Brand Registry, ASINs must be linked to a parent brand using a global category owner identification number. For more information, visit About Amazon Brand Registry.
In order to create a new listing that uses the manufacturer barcode, you must first create a Fulfillment by Amazon listing. If you are a new seller, visit Create and manage inventory for detailed guidelines.
