Lower FBA fulfillment fees with Ships in Product Packaging

by News_Amazon

We’ve launched the Ships in Product Packaging (SIPP) program, formerly known as Ship In Own Container (SIOC). This program allows FBA sellers to ship products in their custom-brand packaging without Amazon-added material.

SIPP allows the following features for FBA sellers:

  • Lower FBA fulfillment fees. Lower FBA fulfillment fees for SIPP-certified products. To learn more, go to 2024 US FBA fulfillment fee changes.
  • Connect with customers. Customize your branding and packaging to display your brand to customers during delivery.
  • Improve sustainability. With less packaging, you use less space on truck which lowers the number of trucks needed and carbon emissions.
Note: Products that are SIPP-certified before February 5, 2024, automatically receive the discounted FBA fulfillment fees on February 5, 2024.

To learn more about SIPP and to enroll your products, go to SIPP enrollment portal.

For a step-by-step guide to navigate the enrollment portal, visit Ships in Product Packaging step-by-step enrollment guide.

Two of our asins that have been auto-enrolled, however these ASINS are not SIPP certified packaging. Who can we reach out to have this corrected?

I enrolled 2 items. The page says I save 4 cents from FBA fees. It is not worth it to have packaging destroyed during shipping so withdrawing. Only 4 cents per item sold in savings. $0.04 savings per item sold to ship in product packaging. $0.04 savings to have Amazon warehouse workers slap a 4x6 label on and ship it out the door instead of putting it inside something bigger. So I save $0.04 and Amazon saves at least $1.00 in time and supplies to ship. Not worth it. Doing "Ships in Product Packaging" saves AMAZON money, not you. Having Amazon ship it in something larger, protecting the packaging, is worth at least $0.04 so I have to completely recommend against the "Ships in Product Packaging" program.

I attempted to enroll a sample ASIN but received an error message: Product is ineligible for enrollment: Too small for a shipping label - Package size is below 6 x 4 x 0.375 inches

My package size is 9 x 7 x 0.15 inches; obviously, a rigid flat package. How does the thickness of the package impact whether a 4 x 6 label will fit?

We have been struggling with Amazon auto-placing our collectible, fragile items in this program. They are not SIPP certified and WILL break if you put a shipping label on the product box, and ship it that way. Not to mention collectors get very Angry when their product box is received damaged, even if the figurine inside does not break. How do we STOP Amazon from shipping our products without a shipping box?

its a great idea, but the discount is far from worth it. it would take about 65c per unit in parts and labor to prepare for SIPP for a 7 cent discount, at least for me.

I found this gem at the bottom of one of the help pages!

Can I unenroll a product from the SIPP program?

If you choose to unenroll a product from SIPP, you can request to decertify it from the Enrolled Products tab within the SIPP page on Seller Central. In the Enrolled Products tab, click Unenroll within the Action column. Amazon will review your decertification request within three business days and send a confirmation email that your request is approved. Note that you will stop receiving discounts for that unenrolled product as soon as the decertification is approved.

PROBLEM THOUGH .... NO BUTTON!

I recommend EVERYONE use the "Feedback" tab (Rate This Page)on that page to complain.

Typical Amazon.

How do we unenroll a product from this stupid program??? Amazon automatically enrolled my newest product and now the product has a 2-star review because the box was dented. But hey, at least I saved $0.11 on fulfillment. Not a bad deal!

Does marking our products as fragile remove them from auto-enrollment?

And if they are marked as fragile, are they any other implications, example, change in costs etc?

Amazon loves damaging packing, that is why they cover UPCs all the time when they don't have to so that they can call an item damaged and charge extra fees. It then requires us to sell brand new products as used. Happy customers, Amazon makes money, and they make it at our expense, not theirs.
