displays a list of all of the products in your shipping plan that require Amazon
barcodes. Click All
products to see a list of all of the products in your shipment.
Important: Products with eligible UPC or EAN barcodes that may also require an
Amazon barcode will not appear in this list. For example, if the UPC or EAN label is
obscured by bubble wrap, an Amazon barcode will still be required, but the product will
not appear in this list.

Tip: To change your Who
preps selection, return to the Prepare Products page and

column, you are required to label your items yourself. To have Amazon label your
products, select Amazon in the Who preps drop-down list.

Tip: Before shipping products to an Amazon fulfilment centre, confirm that the product barcodes match the ASINs listed on your shipping plan.
