Send to Amazon: Print box labels

Once you have confirmed your shipment in step 2 of the Send to Amazon workflow, you can print labels for each box. This page has information on how to print and apply box labels for both small parcel and pallet shipments.

Watch our video tutorials.

Important: Each box you send in must have a label. Make sure to apply the right label to the right box to avoid unnecessary delays when we receive your inventory.

Small parcel shipments

All boxes for small parcel delivery must have an FBA box ID label and a carrier label. To download the labels, click Print box labels in step 3 of the Send to Amazon workflow. For more information about labeling your boxes, go to Shipment label requirements.

If you are using an Amazon partnered carrier, follow these steps:

  1. Click Print box labels to generate a PDF with FBA box ID labels and carrier labels.
  2. Apply the right FBA box ID and carrier label to each box.
  3. Hand off your boxes to the carrier.
Note: Amazon partnered carriers offer automatic tracking, which helps us prepare to receive your inventory when it arrives at the fulfillment center.

If you are using a non-partnered carrier, follow these steps:

  1. Click Print box labels to generate a PDF with only FBA box ID labels.
  2. Work with your carrier to create the carrier labels for your boxes.
  3. Apply the right FBA box ID label and carrier label to each box.
  4. Hand off your boxes to the carrier.
  5. Select Mark all as shipped to tell us your inventory is on its way.
  6. Click Track shipment for each shipment in the workflow and provide tracking IDs for your boxes in the Tracking events tab on the Shipment Summary page.
Important: Providing the correct tracking IDs from your carrier helps Amazon receive your shipment up to 30% faster and make your products available for sale sooner.

Pallet shipments

You must put an FBA box ID label on the outside of each box so the labels will be visible when the pallet is unpacked at the fulfillment center. For more information about labeling your boxes, see Shipment label requirements.

  1. Click Print box labels to generate a PDF with a box ID label.
  2. Apply the right FBA box ID label to each box.
  3. Click Continue to carrier and pallet information.

How do I access tracking and reconciliation information for a shipment?

Once you have handed over your boxes to the carrier, you can track receipt of your inventory and find reconciliation information on the Shipment Summary page by clicking the Track shipment links at the bottom of the Send to Amazon page.

Can I start a new shipping plan without marking my current shipments as shipped?

Yes, you can start a new Send to Amazon workflow without marking your current shipments as shipped. When you have handed off your previous shipments to the carrier, you can access the shipments from the Shipping Queue page and mark them as shipped.
