Attention:

Looking for more information on getting started with FBA? Register for our upcoming live webinars (in English) held on September 11, 2019 and September 24, 2019 and ask your questions to our experts.

  • To register for the "Getting started with Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA)" webinar on September 11, 2019, click here.
  • To register for the "Getting started with Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA)" webinar on September 24, 2019, click here.

After you create a new listing for a product, you specify it as FBA inventory by changing the Fulfilled by value from Merchant to Amazon.

When you close or delete an FBA listing, any inventory you have in Amazon fulfilment centres will not be returned or disposed of until you submit a removal order. For more information about closing or deleting listings, please refer to Close a listing and Delete a listing later in this topic. For more information about removal orders, refer to the help page Remove inventory (overview).

Tip: You can view your FBA inventory listings on the Manage Inventory page by clicking Amazon in the Fulfilled by section of the Filters bar.

You can add products to your inventory individually or upload a list of products to create multiple listings at once. For more information, refer to any one of the following help pages:

Change a listing to fulfilled by Amazon

To change a listing to Fulfilled by Amazon:


  1. On the Manage Inventory page, select the items that you want to change to FBA.
  2. On the Action on Selected drop-down list, click Change to Fulfilled by Amazon.
    Tip: To change an FBA listing to a self-fulfilled listing, select Change to Fulfilled by Merchant.
  3. On the Convert to Fulfilled by Amazon page, click Convert and go to the Amazon-Fulfilled Inventory page, or click Convert & Send Inventory to create a shipping plan. For more information, refer to the help page Create an FBA shipping plan.
Important: If you want to fill orders for these items yourself as well as offer these items as fulfilled by Amazon, you must create two listings, one for each fulfilment type.

List products for multi-channel fulfilment exclusively

You can list your Multi-channel Fulfilment inventory without those products appearing for sale on Amazon by entering a Start selling date that is far in the future when you create your product listing.

Important: If you have an Individual selling account, you must list your products for sale on Amazon in addition to filling orders from other channels. If you want to use Multi-channel Fulfilment exclusively, and not list your products for sale on Amazon, you must sign up for a Pro Merchant account.

For more information about using Multi-channel Fulfilment, refer to the help page Multi-Channel Fulfilment.

Close a listing

When you close a listing, the status changes from Active to Inactive, and makes your product unavailable for sale on Amazon. Your inventory of that product will remain in Amazon fulfilment centres. You can relist your products, submit removal orders, or fill orders through other channels with Multi-channel Fulfilment.


  1. On the Manage Inventory page, select the listings that you want to close.
  2. On the Action on Selected drop-down list, click Close listing.

Delete a listing

When you delete a listing, any offers that are fulfilled by Amazon remain in your inventory list, but are not available for purchase on Amazon. Inventory in Amazon fulfilment centres will remain there until you submit a removal order. For more information, refer to the help page Remove inventory (overview).


  1. On the Manage Inventory page, select the listings that you want to close.
  2. On the Action on Selected drop-down list, click Delete products and listings.

Amazon can provide for the storing and delivery of either new or used items. You can sell on the Amazon site using Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA) services for some items and personally handling orders for others. You can decide anytime whether you or Amazon will take responsibility for a given product’s fulfilment.

Although Amazon can handle the fulfilment and delivery of any product that is smaller than a pallet, we suggest that you use FBA for combining multiple products in a single package. The articles could be anything from the size of a music CD to that of a small stereo.
