Additional FBA listing requirements
Sep 26, 2017

As a reminder, when you select Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) for your listing, you will be required to provide additional information about the product.

To ensure the safety of our customers and compliance with all applicable regulations, you will need to provide additional information on any products that are batteries, contain or are sold with batteries, or may be considered dangerous goods (also called hazardous materials or Hazmat). To learn more about dangerous goods, please refer to the Dangerous goods identification guide.

For batteries and products containing or sold with batteries, you will be asked for descriptive characteristics such as battery composition (e.g., lithium ion, alkaline, etc.) and the number of batteries. Most technical details are listed on the outside of the battery or are available from the manufacturer.
For products considered dangerous goods, you will be required to provide additional information to identify characteristics of the product such as flammability or corrosiveness that would indicate the transportation classification (UN Number). This information can often be found on the item’s outer packaging or a Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
For more information, please view our help videos – Information on Dangerous Goods and Battery Questions Help.

If you do not provide the requested information, you will not be able to create or convert your product listing(s) to FBA. At this time, listings that are already converted to FBA will not be impacted by this change.

Handling Time and Transit Time Policy Changes
Sep 21, 2017

You can now set the Handling Time for all your products to 1 day in Shipping Settings.  If any of your products already had 1 day Handling Time, then this change is effective immediately. To change this setting, go to the Edit Product page or use the Inventory file templates. For more information, visit Modify delivery time.

Based on feedback from sellers, we made this change to allow faster delivery times and therefore improve buyer satisfaction. For sellers who are already shipping items within 1 day, your new and existing products may be automatically defaulted to 1 day Handling Time.

The default Transit Time and available SLAs for Standard Shipping within the United States are also being updated to better serve our customers:
Media Item (Books, Music, Video, and DVD) updates:
4 – 8 business days to the Lower 48 States
7 – 14 business days to Hawaii and Alaska
Non-Media Item updates:
3 – 5 business days to Lower 48 States
4 – 8 business days to Hawaii and Alaska
Be sure to edit your shipping templates within Shipping Settings. To change the default settings, visit Create, edit, or delete shipping templates.

A new SLA of 2-4 days is also being introduced and will be available for selection by end of October. If you use USPS Priority or USPS First Class Mail for shipments to the Lower 48 states, we recommend you set a Transit Time of 2 – 4 business days to optimize customer experience. You will receive an email communication when this change becomes available.
Restriction on shipments of products that don’t have an active offer
Sep 22, 2017

Starting September 21, 2017, you can no longer ship additional units of products with stranded inventory to an Amazon fulfillment center. Stranded inventory refers to FBA inventory in fulfillment centers that do not have an associated active offer, and as a result, are not available for purchase by customers on Amazon. During shipment creation, you will see a stranded inventory alert if you add a product with existing stranded inventory to your shipment.

You can attempt to fix your stranded inventory by going to the Fix Stranded Inventory page and taking the suggested action to associate your inventory with an active offer. You can also try fixing your inventory listings in bulk using the Bulk Fix Stranded Inventory Report. If you are unable to fix the stranded inventory, you may need to create a removal order or contact Seller Support.

Important: If you do not fix a stranded inventory issue within 30 days of notice, we may dispose of your stranded inventory in accordance with FBA policies. For more information, see the Required removals help page.

You can find frequently asked questions about stranded inventory on the Fix Stranded Inventory help page. We welcome your feedback on these changes at

I don't have any idea what is going on with the recent increase of refunds to customers.
Reason of all but one: Order Not Received
We're talking double digits in the past month.

I contacted Seller Support and was told that the items show as delivered.
But state to wait the blah 45 blah days blah blah blah.

I know this.
What I wanted them to know is that there is a uptick in the amount of received items being claimed as order not received scamming of Amazon/Sellers and pass along my worries.
Won't do any good, but geeeeesh...if my numbers are up, I can only imagine the big sellers.

I hear ya.

If I can't get to them, how do I educate them?
I do not understand how in the heck Amazon doesn't realize they are speaking in circles.
Why in the world did they allow secondary users to do that in the first place?  :-X
