FBA inventory

Use the tools in your seller account to list products, create shipping plans, send shipments to fulfillment centers, track and monitor your shipments, and remove inventory from fulfillment centers.

Manage FBA inventory

Send inventory to Amazon

Note: Once your inventory is received at a fulfillment center or receive center, it is available for sale. In the Shipping Queue, you can track your shipment as its status moves from In-Transit to Delivered, Checked-In, Receiving, and Closed. To learn more, visit How Amazon receives and stores your inventory.

Options for creating a shipment include the following:

Inventory sent to Amazon fulfillment centers must meet certain requirements for labeling, packaging, and shipping. Adhering to these requirements will help you avoid delays, unplanned service fees, and penalties.

  • Packaging and prep requirements: Learn about the general preparation requirements for sending inventory to fulfillment centers and the product categories that require specialized prep.
  • Use an Amazon barcode to track inventory: Each unit you send to a fulfillment center requires a barcode so it can be tracked throughout the fulfillment process. Products that don’t use a manufacturer barcode for tracking require an Amazon barcode.
Note: By default, when you create a shipping plan, your shipment may be divided into multiple shipments, each directed to a different fulfillment center. The fulfillment centers are selected based on the products you're shipping and where you're shipping them from. By having your inventory spread across multiple fulfillment centers across the country, customers who buy your product may receive it faster than they would if your inventory was located farther away.

Track and reconcile shipments

  • Track your shipments: The Shipping Queue provides details on all the shipments you’re working on and those you have sent to Amazon. The Shipment Summary page has details on a specific shipment sent to Amazon.
  • Reconcile your shipment: Identify and resolve any discrepancies between what is listed in your shipping plan and what is received at the fulfillment center.
  • Troubleshoot receiving issues: Get troubleshooting tips for the most common receiving errors related to FBA shipments.
