FBA Donations program

The FBA Donations program makes it possible for you to automatically donate your unwanted inventory to selected charities in Canada.

Pilot program

FBA Donations is currently in a pilot phase. Participation is limited and by invitation only. Sellers who participate will have access to the new features of FBA Donations, and can provide feedback to help us refine the program.

How it works

You are enrolled in FBA Donations by invitation only. To verify your enrolment status, go to the Settings navigation menu and select Fulfilment by Amazon, then scroll down to FBA Donations. If you are not part of the pilot program, you won’t see the FBA Donations section in your Settings.

When you request disposal of eligible overstock, returned, or other unwanted FBA inventory in Canada fulfilment centres, we make it available to selected Canadian charities.

Our usual FBA removal order fees apply.

The FBA Donations program is only available for inventory stored in Canada fulfilment centres.

Eligible products

While you’re enrolled in the program, we’ll evaluate all of your eligible product disposals for donation. An ASIN’s eligibility for donation is subject to legal, safety, and regulatory guidelines, in addition to charity location, interest, and need.

If a product is not eligible for donation, we will dispose of it in accordance with relevant regulations and safety guidelines.

Products that are ineligible for donation include the following:

  • Hazardous and dangerous goods
  • Prohibited and restricted products
  • Recalled products
  • Products with internal memory
  • Counterfeit products
  • Products with safety concerns
  • Any other products that may be defective or inappropriate for donation

Program partners

We are partnering with select Canadian charities to distribute donated FBA inventory. The charities work with a diverse network of charities in Canada that support people in need.

Each program partner agrees to not sell, trade, or barter donated goods, and is a registered charity according to the Canada Revenue Service.

Tax considerations

We cannot provide tax advice to sellers who take part in FBA Donations. Contact your tax adviser to discuss the program and your tax reporting obligations.

Opting out

You can opt out by disabling FBA Donations program in your FBA settings. Disposals made after you opt out will no longer be eligible for donations.

Reporting

Receipts for donated inventory will be available in your Donation receipts page, for donations that were made in the previous month. Donation receipts will be generated based on your business information in Seller Central. Make sure your business information is accurate by verifying or updating it on the Business address page.

Note: We’re unable to reissue donation receipts. The information in the donation receipt is provided by our charity partner. If you have questions regarding the donation receipt, contact the charity listed on the donation receipt.
