QuestionsUPC & FNSKU location?
Joseph R Fleet asked 6 months ago

Hi I already asked this question in your comments section on the barcode post, but I”m about to meet with my designer tomorrow regarding labeling and packagiing design, and if I have a product that comes in a small bottle and then comes in a box, do the FNSKU and UPC both need to be on the BOX? Or is the UPC on the product bottle and the FNSKU on the outside of the box, and can that be printed on or is it just a sticker that you have to add manually?

Hi man,
You only need the FNSKU on the outside of the box. You will need to have an UPC code in order to generate the FNSKU label in Amazon seller central.
Good luck with your designer!

Dear Sir,
I am both new and confused about the labelling issue for Amazon FBA.  Please correct me if I am wrong.  My products will be in a box of pack of 10.  On this packaging, I have placed a UPC bar code.  IS this correct?  Furthermore, what goes on the bigger carton that contains the 10 items?

Thanks in advance for your prompt reply.
Yours sincerely,

You have to place the FNSKU barcode on the packaging/product that your customer will receive. Then you have to place a carton label ( you will create this in Seller Central when creating the shipment ) on the cartons that will contain the 10 products.
