Liquids

Liquid products (or products containing liquids) require suitable packaging to protect from spills, leaks, and breaking. Watch this short video to see examples of how your products should be prepared for shipment to Amazon's Fulfillment Centers.

Liquid products (or products containing liquids) will only be accepted if they have the following characteristics and conform to the following packaging requirements and restrictions:

Product Characteristics Packaging Requirements
Container Type Sellable Unit Sellable Unit Package Sellable Weight/ Volume Restriction Seal
Glass Single unit Corrugate box Volume of 1 liter or less Double-sealed screw cap
Plastic Single unit None Volume of 1 liter or less Double-sealed screw cap
Plastic Multi-unit, physically bundled Corrugate box 1 liter or less per individual unit Double-sealed screw cap

Additional requirements for all liquids:

  • Corrugated containers on multi-unit bundled products must meet the following criteria:
    • A box certificate seal exists.
    • The product is in a six-sided carton.
    • The carton does not give way when medium pressure is applied to any of the sides.
    • No side of the carton has an opening that makes some of the contents visible from the outside.
    • The contents of the product are securely held in place inside of the carton so they do no roll.
    • The carton is sealed with tape, glue or staples.
    • The carton has clear markings indicating which side is the top.
  • The product must not contain hazardous materials.
  • Each sellable unit must be able to pass a drop test consisting of the following: Items will be dropped three successive times from a height of 125 cm onto a concrete surface, once on the top, once on the corner, and once on either the side or the bottom. A single item must survive a single test (three drops). If the container does not leak, it passes the test. Damage to the container is acceptable.
