On November 1st, 2016, Amazon will be requiring sellers to provide box content information for their FBA shipments.
What is box content?
Basically, Amazon wants to know the exact units in each box. If you have more than one box per shipment, you will need to provide this information. Or you can can opt-out and pay Amazon 15 cents per unit.
Fortunately, ScanLister now has two ways to enter box content information (works for both Mac and PC).
- Printing 2D barcodes for each box
- Uploading a pack list file for each FBA shipment
Here's a video tutorial on printing 2D Barcodes
To enable the use of 2D barcodes, go to your Seller Account — Settings — Fulfillment by Amazon — Inbound Shipment.

It is also important to note that you do not have to use ScanLister as your listing program to use the box content features. If you have another listing program that you like, you can still use ScanLister's box content features. All you need is your FBA Shipment ID and your ready to go!
You can try ScanLister free for 8 days.
