Starting January 25th, Amazon Logistics Center will no longer accept products bearing manufacturer barcodes, all of which must use Amazon barcodes.It is reported that before the January 25th, the Amazon FBA warehouse or the ASIN products already in the Amazon FBA warehouse need not be changed. All new distribution plans created for ASIN after January 25th need to do the following:

1. Select 'Amazon Barcode' when creating a quote.

2. Print the Amazon barcode label and attach it to the item before delivery, or have Amazon label the item (payable).

(Editor's note: ASIN code is the unique number compiled by Amazon's own product. If it is the ASIN code of the book, it is equivalent to the ISBN number of the world. When the ASIN number of other products is submitted and released by the product, Amazon will generate A string of numbers, that is the ASIN code.)

It is reported that sellers can have two choices when creating a quotation, one is to paste the manufacturer's barcode, and the other is to paste the Amazon barcode. Prior to this, the seller's default option was the manufacturer's barcode.

If you use a manufacturer's barcode to sell goods, Amazon can use the 'nearby principle' to ship. For example, A and B sellers selling iPhoneX have previously placed their products in Amazon's FBA warehouse, and these products are also labeled with the manufacturer's barcode of the global unified factory. When a consumer purchases a product, even if the order is placed through the A seller account product link, but because of the 'closeness principle' of the warehouse delivery, it is likely that the product that is issued to the consumer is prepared by the B seller in advance to the FBA warehouse. At this time, Amazon is equivalent to selling the seller's goods directly to the consumer, and modifying the inventory of the A seller.

In addition, whether it is Amazon's own products or third-party seller products in the process of order delivery, it is necessary to Amazon to do inventory information maintenance. According to industry insiders, Amazon's warehouse operations are costly and error-prone. Currently, thousands of manufacturer barcodes and Amazon ASIN barcodes coexist in Amazon warehouses, requiring a huge database maintenance fee.The industry also said that products sent to the FBA warehouse before January 25 will also be sorted and shipped according to the original 'near principle', while Amazon stipulates that the seller will use the ASIN barcode on the 25th, which is actually the Amazon slave system. Start the creation of the shipment, gradually rectify the sorting and delivery process, and the information management process.

In response, some sellers said that they have not received this notice yet, but they have been replaced with Amazon barcodes, and the labels are provided by the freight forwarders. This is the requirement for warehousing.

The seller also pointed out that Amazon's move is a warehouse management upgrade, mainly for Amazon's self-operated part, Amazon's self-operated is a unified procurement, you can adjust the warehouse, but non-self-operated part of the marketing will never be shared, because the seller's packaging The brands are different. The premise of the seller's use of the principle of proximity is multi-warehousing.
