This page describes how to create a new FBA listing that uses virtual tracking, which relies on the manufacturer barcode. If you want to make changes to existing FBA product listings, go to How to switch from using Amazon barcodes to manufacturer barcodes .
By default, your seller account is set to use the manufacturer barcode to track your eligible inventory throughout the Amazon fulfilment process. You can change your barcode settings for new shipments and inventory not yet received at a fulfilment centre.
When using manufacturer barcodes, products must meet eligibility requirements listed on Using FBA virtual tracking. In addition, for products that are approved by the Amazon Brand Registry, ASINs must be linked to a parent brand using a global category owner identification number. For more information, go to Amazon Brand Registry.
To create a new listing that uses virtual tracking with the manufacturer barcode, choose Fulfilment by Amazon as the fulfilment type. For more information, see List products for FBA.
If you are a new seller, go to Manage FBA inventory for guidelines.
