FBA Label Service

For eligible products that require an Amazon barcode, Fulfilment by Amazon can apply those barcodes for you for a per-item fee.


Products eligible for the FBA Label Service:

  • Condition: New
  • Product Type: Any (Media and Non-media)
  • Not prohibited, restricted, or high-value items
  • Have a single scannable barcode (GCID, UPC, EAN, JAN, or ISBN) that corresponds to an ASIN in Amazon’s online catalogue.
Acceptable Not acceptable
  • Each item must be labelled with a single scannable barcode (ISBN, UPC, EAN, or JAN) on the outer package.
  • The barcode must be registered in the Amazon catalogue.

  • Check to see whether the barcode (UPC, EAN, or JAN) is listed in our catalogue by running a search on the barcode.
    • Running a search by the title or other keywords may cause an operational error that will interrupt the process.
  • ISBN is indicated but barcode is not labelled.

  • Products with a printed barcode on the wraparound band but the band is missing.

  • Products with no barcode (common in overseas products and grey products)
  • A group of products with no group-JAN barcode (for example, a collection of comic books with individual barcodes but no group barcode)
  • Barcode is not scannable because it is punched out, marked over, or covered.

Important: If there is no eligible manufacturer barcode on the item, you must apply an Amazon barcode to the item yourself.

Amazon will, at our sole discretion, determine which products meet the eligibility requirements for the FBA Label Service. We reserve the right to disqualify products from this service that otherwise meet the above requirements.
