FBA prohibited products

Note: Many dangerous goods (as defined in the Australian Dangerous Goods Code) are not able to be fulfilled by Amazon in Australia. Limited Dangerous Goods assigned under Hazardous Transportation Regulatory Codes (HTRC) 2.1, 2.2, 3, 4.1, 5.1, 8, and 9 (which includes certain lithium batteries) are able to be fulfilled by Amazon. For some of these categories, you need approval from Amazon to inbound into the Fulfilment Centre. For more information see the ‘Dangerous Goods Allowed for Sale through FBA’ header of the Dangerous Goods Identification Guide. This means that you should not upload and deliver to us any product that is categorised as dangerous good, or outside permitted categories. We will dispose any such dangerous goods delivered to an Amazon fulfilment centre in Australia in accordance with the Fulfilment by Amazon service terms.

It is your responsibility to know whether or not the products you are shipping are regulated as hazardous materials. Hazardous materials that are shipped to Amazon fulfilment centres may be subject to disposal without reimbursement, even if they have not been previously identified by Amazon as hazardous materials.

Important: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal, disposal, or return of inventory, the blocking of future shipments, or an additional charge for additional preparation or non-compliance.

Sellers participating in Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) must comply with Amazon’s restricted products policy and FBA-specific product restrictions. The following products are prohibited from FBA:

  • Any product that cannot be lawfully sold and distributed in all Australian jurisdictions
  • Sky lanterns or floating lanterns

  • Products with unauthorised marketing materials, such as pamphlets, price tags, or other non-Amazon stickers
    Note: Amazon will not accept pre-priced labels or products.

    • However televisions have a maximum allowable weight of 34 kg
  • Products that require preparation but that have not been prepped according to FBA packaging and prep requirements
