You must use amazon's legacy system to create a mock shipment. (Need help accessing the legacy shipments?)
Note that Amazon is planning on deactivating the legacy system on August 31st 2022. We are working on plans for this but there is no current workaround in the new workflow.
If you are buying goods from us and plan on shipping them directly to Amazon Fulfillment Centers (I.E. FBA Centers) this guide is extremely important to take into consideration. Amazon has their own requirements that change from product to product. We are not always able to follow their requirements. You must check with us prior to placing an order to see if we are able to meet any special requirements. We will be unable to cancel an order once placed due to special requests. Please review this guide and others in depth to avoid costly issues.

You can identify the following issues that come up frequently:
Step 1: Begin by adding the product to your inventory
You can do this by copy and pasting the ASIN from the palletfly.com product page, or you can use the "Check if Gated" link on each product. In the image below, you see that this account is not gated to sell this product. Add the product to your inventory and select "Amazon will ship and provide customer service"
Forced Barcoding or other prep.
As you can see in the below image, you can identify that Amazon is forcing you to place a "Amazon Barcode" on the product. This applies even if the product has a UPC on it. Other scenarios may present themselves at this step. You will have to double check and see if Palletfly can comply with Amazon's requirement on a case by case basis.
Step 2: Continue the shipment plan until you reach this screen. Select continue to shipping plan.
Tip: You can use ANY ship from address to create a mock shipment.
Step 3: Enter the quantity you are planning on buying and continue the shipment
Step 4: Review the prep guidelines for the item. You can see this item is allowing me to have Amazon label it for a fee.
Step 5: Continue the shipment. At this stage, you will see the breakdown. In this case, there is only 1 shipment.
Step 6: Make sure to accept the shipment(s) so you don't lose them. You can always change the ship-from address later on
DONE. If you've gotten to the shipment screen, then you know what special requirements or restrictions are for this product.
(Note that Amazon can change their requirements at any time. Even after you followed all the above steps. That is one of the risks of selling on Amazon. We will be unable to take liability for any special requirements that Amazon places on a product or on your account. Palletfly.com is not affiliated with Amazon.com.
