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. Each box that you send in must have a label. Make sure to apply the right label on the right box.

Small parcel shipments

All boxes for small parcel delivery must have a Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) box ID label and a carrier label. To download the labels, click Print box labels in step 3 of the shipment creation process. For more information about labeling your boxes, see Shipment label requirements.

If you are using an Amazon partnered carrier:

  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’re using a non-partnered carrier:

  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 details.

Frequently asked questions

How do I see the ship-from address?

In step 2 or step 3 of the workflow, you can see the ship-from address that you selected during step 1 in the step 1 header. You won’t be able to change this address after you confirm a shipment in step 2 of the workflow.

Important: Amazon requires an accurate ship-from address to ensure proper placement of your inventory and the accuracy of shipping charges.

How do I print box labels?

Once you accept shipping charges in step 2, you will be able to download FBA box ID labels for each box in your shipment and print them out.

Note: Every box sent to Amazon must have an FBA box ID label. For more information, see Shipment label requirements.

What happens when I mark a shipment as shipped?

When you indicate that you have handed off your shipment to the carrier, the shipment moves to Shipped status. Once it's in Shipped status, our fulfillment centers know to prepare to receive your inventory, avoiding unnecessary delays.

How can I access workflow details from previously created shipments?

You can get information about all confirmed shipments from your Shipping Queue and search for them using the shipment ID. Clicking on a shipment from the Shipping Queue will take you to the Shipment Summary page. There you can track your shipment, see shipment contents, and reconcile inventory.
