Products eligible for the FBA Label Service must:

  • Be in new condition only

  • Not be prohibited, restricted or high value
  • Have a single scannable barcode (GCID, UPC, EAN, JAN or ISBN)
Note: As of 17 April 2018, GCIDs can no longer be used in place of a UPC, EAN, JAN or ISBN to create ASINs. If your brand has been approved for the Brand Registry program and you don’t have UPCs, EANs, JANs or ISBNs for your products, apply for GTIN exemption.
