Before listing products with Fulfillment by Amazon, it’s important to know what’s suitable for fulfillment and what isn’t. Be sure to review the Help pages below for additional product requirements and restrictions:
FBA accepts products that are subject to melting between October 15 and April 30 of each calendar year. Any meltable inventory in our fulfillment centers after May 15 is marked as unfulfillable and disposed of. Meltable inventory that arrives at fulfillment centers between May 1 and October 14 is marked as unfulfillable and disposed of.Products that are already stored in our fulfillment centers will not be fulfilled if temperatures are too high and the offer might be removed temporarily.
Meltable refers to heat-sensitive products that are eaten or swallowed, including chocolate, gummies, and probiotics. Chocolates, gummies, and probiotics will not be fulfilled through FBA from May 15 through September 30.
Products in fulfillment centers must be able to withstand a minimum temperature of 10°C and a maximum temperature of 30°C during the product’s shelf life without hurting its quality.
Box markings must not show storage temperature requirements unless those requirements are explicitly stated as from 10°C to 30°C.[During transport the products are exposed to normal outdoor temperatures].
Products requiring refrigeration, air conditioning, or freezing are prohibited all year long. Perishable products, including but not limited to, fresh meats, fruits, or vegetables are also prohibited throughout the year.
Removal orders for meltable inventory must be submitted before May 1of each calendar year. Failure to do so may result in the disposal of products without compensation. Note that it can take weeks for the removal process to be completed.
