Send FBA inventory to Amazon

The send/replenish inventory workflow is a legacy shipment creation workflow. We recommend that you use Send to Amazon which is a streamlined shipment creation workflow that requires fewer steps to replenish your Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) inventory.

If you are using our legacy send/replenish workflow, when you are ready to send inventory to Amazon, you begin by creating a shipping plan. A shipping plan specifies:

  • The products you want to send to Amazon
  • The quantity of each product
  • The delivery method and carrier details
  • Whether or not you want to prep and label your inventory yourself or have Amazon do it

Create your shipping plan

You can use the tools in your seller account to:

  1. Select products (see the next section)
  2. Set the quantity for each product
  3. Prepare products
  4. Label products
  5. Review shipment details
  6. Prepare your shipment
  7. View your shipment summary

As an alternative, you can provide a spreadsheet with the details of your shipping plan. For more information, see Create shipping plans in bulk.

After you have completed your shipment and sent it to Amazon, you can use these tools to track your delivery as it progresses through the fulfilment network. Note that FBA inventory storage limits may apply.

Select products

To begin, select the products that you want to send to Amazon:

Tip: Make sure to review our FBA best practices when selecting products to ship to FBA.

  1. On the Manage Inventory page, select each product that you want to send. Select Send/Replenish Inventory from the Action on Selected drop-down menu.
  2. On the Send/Replenish Inventory page, select one of the following:
    • Create a new shipping plan to create a new shipping plan.
    • Add to an Existing Shipping plan to add products to an open shipping plan. Select an open plan from the Add to shipping plan drop-down list.
  3. Confirm your ship-from address. Your ship-from address is the location where your shipment will be picked up. It may be your home or business. If you work with suppliers, it may be from their fulfilment centre. To change the ship-from address, click Ship from another address.
  4. Confirm the packing type of the products you are shipping to Amazon. Individual products are single products of varying quantities and conditions. Case-packed products are multiples of the same product packaged by the manufacturer, each case containing the same quantity in the same condition.
  5. Click Continue to shipping plan.
