We require all products to be barcoded. It is how we identify a product as unique to you. All Amazon barcodes must be printed in black ink on white, non-reflective labels. If your products do not already have barcodes on them, you can print barcodes while creating your inbound shipping plan.
Products that arrive without barcodes will be returned.
Barcodes can be:
a) Deliverr SKU (DSKU): an alphanumeric string that always begins with a D:
b) Manufacturer SKU
ISBN (Post 2007)
c) Amazon SKU (FNSKU or ASIN): an alphanumeric string that always begins with a B or an X:
NOTE: Amazon's Transparency labels are not accepted. Please relabel or cover the QR code or it can result in delays and/or non-compliance.
Once you choose a barcode for each product, it cannot be changed. So it’s imperative it is correct. It’s a good idea to check it with your warehouse before completing this step.
Products shipped with incorrect labels are noncompliant and will be assessed noncompliance and relabeling fees.
How/Where to Apply Barcode Labels
Barcodes must be easily scannable and securely adhered to every sellable unit. Poorly attached barcodes (photo 1) or barcodes folded over edges (photo 3) will require relabeling and incur associated fees.
The minimum size of a barcode is 1.469” wide by 1.02“ tall (keep in mind this is the physical barcode size, not the label). If you are adjusting the size of the barcode by zooming in or out to fit a physical label size, the barcode itself can be reduced by up to 80% and can be increased by up to 200%.
BAD Photo 1 - This unit should be bagged and then barcoded as in photo 2:
GOOD Photo 2 - Properly bagged and barcoded securely adhered:
BAD Photo 3 - This barcode will not be scannable folded over the edge:
GOOD Photo 4 - Barcode is easily scannable adhered to a flat surface:
Covering Up ALL Other Visible Barcodes
Other than the barcode you have selected for the product within Deliverr, all other visible barcodes MUST be removed or completed covered. This is extremely important to prevent mis-scans and mis-picks during fulfillment.
Products Shipped in Case Packs
Case packs often have their own barcodes on the outside of the box. These must be covered or removed. Even if the barcode is the same barcode you have selected for the product, it must not appear on the outside of the case pack it is shipped in. These must be removed or covered up. Otherwise, a picker may scan that barcode and pick the entire case pack for an order meant for just one unit. This is extremely important. See example below.
Photo 5 - Let's assume each stack of blue cups is a sellable unit, and the UPC is the barcode. Therefore, there are 4 sellable units within this case pack:
Photo 6 - The outside of the case pack has a scannable barcode:
Photo 7 - This barcode must be covered or removed:
