Product Bundling Policy

We consider a "bundle" any listing with multiple products under one ASIN. Generally, selling bundles should be limited, so as to keep listings clear for customers and to avoid repeat orders. However, we are aware that certain bundles offer advantageous pricing and selection for customers, so we strive to continue allowing these kinds of offers on our platform. Preferably, bundles should be created using the "Manage Promotions" tool in Seller Central.

Note: In 2014, the German Finance Ministry decided on a tax policy for package deals where a customer can buy a print version of a newspaper or magazine in combination with access to an electronic version of these publications. Starting January 1, 2016, printed publications must be taxed differently than electronic publications, at 7% and 19% respectively, even if both are offered for one flat fee. If you think your products are subject to this regulation, please consult a tax advisor.

We accept Bundles in the following cases:

  • Increased quantity of identical items: You can learn more about which information you will need to update for proper packaging of these bundles here.
  • Bundles that are also offered by Amazon (Retail) with the same ASIN and in the same quantity.
  • Bundles that are offered by a manufacturer with a unique EAN number and are defined as such.
  • Category-specific bundles that aren’t just more of the same item, but are a combination of items that are paired together:
    • Automotive: balaclava and motorcycle helmet.
    • Home Improvement: power/electric drill and matching bit box.
    • Office Supplies/Electronics/Computers: Camera, and accessories (for example, SD-cards, carrying case, lens cap, and batteries for camera XY), computers, and accessories (for example, keyboard, and mouse).
    • Movies, Music, and Games: complete series sets; for example, all Twilight movies, Bravo Hits 1-10.
    • Garden: Grill & Grilling Accessories (utensils, brushes, and hamburger press); patio furniture and table.
    • Sports & Leisure: GPS-devices and matching memory cards.
    • Jewelry: individual sets of matching jewelry elements (for example, with collector sets) that may account for a maximum of 10% of your total assortment.
    • Food:
      • Gift baskets and sets that are priced with occasion-appropriate gift packaging that unmistakably indicate the bundle is a gift.
      • Wine packages (these may contain different wine varieties and accessories; for example, glasses, corkscrews, etc. in increased quantities).
      • Sample sets that allow a customer to test the most possible varieties with the clear intent to buy a full-price item later. Therefore, only sample sizes of one to two portions/units per variety may be included (for example, a one-cup portion of each coffee blend, one bottle of each beer, one candy bar per flavor, etc.).
  • All products in bundles must comply with Amazon's selling policies. More specifically, all products within bundles must adhere to the guidelines for each category.
