Create a new listing that uses virtual tracking

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 .

Note: Virtual tracking with the manufacturer barcode is available only for inventory that is fulfilled by Amazon. For more information, go to List products for Fulfilment by Amazon.

You can change your barcode settings for new shipments and inventory not yet received at a fulfilment centre.

To use the manufacturer barcode for tracking, products must meet the eligibility requirements listed on Using FBA virtual tracking.

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, visit About Amazon Brand Registry.

Note: If your product doesn’t meet the virtual tracking eligibility requirements, you may be able to get an exemption to use the manufacturer barcode by applying with Amazon Brand Registry and enrolling your ASIN in the program. Non-brand-registered sellers would be required to apply Amazon barcodes for the ineligible product.
