Packaging Jewelry

Packaging Jewelry

IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with FBA product preparation requirements, safety requirements, and product restrictions may result in the refusal of inventory at the Amazon fulfillment center, disposal or return of inventory, blocking of future shipments to the fulfillment center, or charging for preparation or for noncompliance at the fulfillment center.

Any jewelry unit that can be damaged by tearing, dirt, dust or liquid during the fulfillment process must be packaged following these guidelines. Jewelry must be packaged so that the unit cannot be damaged or cause unsafe conditions by having the material exposed during the fulfillment process.

Pouches

  • Pouches must be packed individually in plastic bags with the barcode on the outside of the pouch to avoid damage from dust. Place a product description label on the side with the greatest surface area.
  • The bag should be appropriate for size of a pouch. Do not force a pouch into a bag that is too small or place it in a bag where it can easily shift around. The edges of large bags are more likely to get caught and tear exposing contents to dust or dirt.
  • All poly bags (minimum 1.5 mil) with an opening of 5″ or larger must have a “suffocation warning.” Example: “Plastic bags can be dangerous. To avoid danger of suffocation; keep this bag away from babies and children.”
  • All poly bags must be transparent.

Boxed Jewelry

  • Boxes made of material that is easily cleaned do not have to be bagged. Sleeves are sufficient protection from dust.
  • Boxes made of fabric-like material that is susceptible to dust or tearing must to be bagged or boxed individually with barcode displayed prominently.
  • Protective sleeve or bag should be only slightly larger than unit.
  • Box sleeves should be snug enough or secured in such a way that they will not slide off and the barcode must be visible with the sleeve in place.
  • Barcodes should be attached to box if possible; they can be attached to sleeves if secured properly.

 

Best practice for high-value jewelry

As high-value jewelry may not sell quickly, we recommend that you package these Units in protective bags to help protect them while they are at the fulfillment center. If you are sending products to FBA that have a Replacement Value greater than $2,000.00, please be aware of the FBA Lost and Damaged reimbursement policy.

Permitted packaging materials:

  • Poly bags
  • Boxes
  • Labels
