As an ISTA-certified package test lab included on Amazon’s APASS network, Keystone Package Testing is very familiar with the test requirements of Amazon’s Vendor Package Certification Process. We test a lot of packages on a daily basis and have assembled some tips to help Amazon vendors sell baby products with the least amount of damage, while complying with the requirements of Amazon’s Fulfillment by Amazon product packaging guidelines. The information below is a brief overview of some best practices. Please consult Amazon.com for a full list of their packaging requirements for baby products.

Things to do:

  • All individual units should be placed in transparent, sealed bags or shrink wrap (minimum of 1.5 mil) clearly marked with a suffocation warning label.
  • Enclose packages that have an opening greater than one inch by one inch in a sealed poly bag or shrink-wrapped.
  • Make sure there are no exposed surfaces by having the entire unit sealed.

 

Things not to do:

  • Have more than one inch by one inch of the product exposed.
  • Not have a products for children under the age of four contained in a sealed, six-sided package, shrink-wrapped or in a sealed poly bag.
  • Use a bag or shrink wrap that is three inches larger than the dimensions of the product.
