Amazon 2D Barcodes for FBA shipments

When sending in multiple boxes in one shipment to Amazon you are either required to affix a 2D barcode on the outside of your boxes or include printed manifests on the inside.  AccelerList makes it very easy to print Amazon 2D barcodes for your shipments and move or arrange items within your box.

However, Amazon box content can really slow down your workflow and the savings from shipping usually isn’t worth the headache in our opinion.  To keep yourself sane, you might want to keep send in each shipment with only one box.

How to enable Amazon 2D barcodes in Seller Central

Sellers, you can enable the 2D barcode setting by going to your Fulfillment by Amazon settings in Seller Central, and editing your Inbound Settings. After that, each time you create a shipment using 2D barcodes, make sure you select the 2D barcode option. The barcodes provide the product quantities and expiration dates (if applicable) for every box in your shipment.

When using 2D barcodes, make sure your barcodes meet the standard requirements. You will find those requirements outlined in the help page Using 2D barcodes for box content information. You will find samples there as well as detailed requirements. It is very important that the barcodes meet the requirements, so we can efficiently receive your incoming shipments.

There are several benefits to using 2D barcodes:

• They satisfy the box content information requirement, so you don’t need to manually enter box content information into Seller Central.
• They are useful for sellers who drop ship inventory direct from suppliers because the supplier doesn’t need to access details of the shipment in order to provide the box information.
• They scale to larger shipments more easily for high-volume sellers.
