It is important to adhere to our fulfilment process, product preparation requirements, and review FBA product restrictions before listing products for Fulfilment by Amazon.
For additional product requirements and restrictions, ensure to review the following as appropriate:
Please follow these guidelines for expiration-dated products:
All expiration-dated products must have the expiration date printed in a font that is 36 point or larger. All case packs, multi-packs, and display boxes must have the expiration date on the box or bundle, as well as on each individual item inside the box or bundle.
Expiration dates must be displayed in the format DD-MM-YYYY or MM-YYYY. If the expiration date is in a different format, you must cover the existing date with a printed label with the expiration date in the correct format. Lot numbers alone are insufficient.
Numerical date formats are preferred. However, expiration dates that are stated with an alphabetical abbreviation for the month (for example, DD-JAN-YYYY) are acceptable.
Any printed manufactured date must be covered with a label with the expiration date in the correct format. Failure to cover the manufactured date on a product may cause delays in receiving your products, or may cause your products to be received as expired.
Some selling categories have different expiration date requirements than the ones described above.
Expiration-dated products must be fully enclosed and sealed in packaging suitable for shipping.
Expiration-dated products that require additional prep, such as poly bagging or bubble wrap, must have labels with expiration dates in 36-point font or larger applied to the outside of the product prep or packaging. Lot numbers are sufficient.
