Amazon Seller Topics
I was able to send out my first shipments to Amazon. They were sent to 5 different fulfillment centers.

The one closest to me in PA has received my package and my items are now being shown as FBA (how exciting). I only wish I could have sent more to my home state.

I am trying to do a couple of case boxes. All have the identical item inside. Can these case packaging be merged in with the single SKU items or do I have to create their own working order and send them separately from the single SKU.

Can the box that I use to send them in be completely blank and not have the manufacturer information on that. Can I box my own stuff up if I have more than 6 to make my own case box?

Also, is there anything else that I need to know regarding the case packaging.

Thank you for your help as it has been valuable in getting me through this learning curve.

For FBA purposes, a "case" is however many YOU decide to send in one box. The manufacturer might send items to you in a case of 6, but you can send them into Amazon case packed with quantities of 7, 11, or 19 in a box, if you so choose. But every box of a particular SKU has to have an equal number of items in it.

Example of a case packed shipment:

SKU-001: 3 cases of 14 items each.
SKU-002: 7 cases of 20 items each.
SKU-003: 1 case of 4 items.

This gives you a total of 11 boxes in one single, case packed FBA shipment.

And yes, they do have to be shipped in a different Amazon shipment than single sku shipments.
