Packaging Glass, Ceramic, Breakable, and Fragile Units
Fragile Units should be packaged so they will not break and possibly create a safety hazard during storage, shipment preparation, or shipment to the customer. A fragile Unit must be packaged in either a six solid-sided box, or completely secured in bubble wrap, so the Unit is not exposed in any way.
Watch this brief video for examples of how to prep your products for shipment to and storage in Amazon fulfillment centers.
How to Prep Fragile Products
Note: Expiration-dated products
Products that expire and are contained in packaging that requires additional prep, such as glass jars or bottles, must be prepped to ensure that the expiration date is accessible for Amazon associates during the receive process. For more information about these requirements, visit the FBA Help section on Date- and Temperature-Sensitive Products.
