Send to Amazon is the shipment creation workflow with a streamlined process that requires few steps to send or replenish your Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) inventory.
Send to Amazon lets you create reusable packing templates to provide box content information, box weight and dimensions, and prep and labeling details for your SKUs. Once you save those details in a template, you will not have to re-enter them for each shipment, saving you time on replenishment.

In the packing template, the box dimensions and weight fields correspond to the box you’ll hand off to your carrier. Dimensions are the outside dimensions of the box, and the weight is the total weight of the packed shipping box, including dunnage.
For each packing template, we need to know how your items are prepped and labeled. If prep instructions are known for your SKU, they will be displayed in the packing template. If they are not known, select them when you create the template. For more information, see Packaging and prep requirements.
There are two ways to print item labels:
If your packing template shows an error message and you have resolved it, re-save your packing template. This will refresh the eligibility checks on the SKU. If the error has been resolved, you will no longer see the error message.
