Problem types

The following receiving problems are surfaced through the Inbound Performance Feedback system:

Labeling required - All products sent to fulfillment centers require a scannable barcode (UPC, JAN, EAN, ISBN, etc.) or Amazon product label (also known as an X00 label). If your product has one or more of the problems below, Amazon will need to apply a label so your product can be received (may be subject to an additional service charge).

Problem Description
Label required Your product required a barcode or an Amazon product label for one or more reasons. See Use an Amazon barcode to track inventory for more information.
Barcode cannot be scanned The physical barcode or the Amazon product label is either damaged or illegible, and your product must be relabeled. See Use an Amazon barcode to track inventory for more information.
Unit mislabeled The label does not match the physical unit, and your product requires relabeling. See Use an Amazon barcode to track inventory for more information.
Barcode is not accessible by scanner Your product had the required scannable barcode, but it was not accessible for the scanner to read. This could be caused by poor label placement, or prep (such as bubble wrap) blocking the original barcode. See Use an Amazon barcode to track inventory for more information.

Prep required - One or more of the products in your shipment did not meet the preparation requirements for Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA). If your product has one or more of the problems below, Amazon will need to prep it so it can be received at the fulfillment center and placed in your sellable inventory.

Problem Description
Poly bagging required The unit was not bagged and required bagging to protect it from dust and damage.
Bubble wrap required The unit was not bubble wrapped and required bubble wrap to protect it from damage.
Opaque bagging The unit is an adult product and required opaque bagging.
Taping required The unit required taping. Products that have loose parts should be taped so the parts are not lost during the fulfillment process. Unsealed poly bags and bubble wrap must be taped to keep the product from falling out.
