    • Feed – Sellercloud will automatically upload the contents directly to Seller Central
    • 2-D Barcode – Seller will download and affix 2D barcode labels with box contents
    • None – Seller will download a box contents file and upload the file to Seller Central. Box content information will not be provided to Amazon for this shipment. Seller will incur extra fees from Amazon.
    Label Prep PreferenceSelect the party – either Amazon or the seller – who will be responsible for labeling the items. This is only relevant for items that need labels.

    Change the setting for this shipment only:

    • Amazon_Label_Only – Amazon will label all eligible products when received at their fulfillment center. Ineligible products will be rejected from the shipment. This service has associated fees.
    • Amazon_Label_Preferred – Asks Amazon to label any products not labeled by the seller. Fees are applied as needed. Note that this is just a request, and if Amazon requires something else, they may still send back a Label Type indicating that the seller is required to label the products. If the seller does not label the product, their account may be affected.
    • Seller_Label (default setting) – The merchant will label the products if required. The merchant may incur fees for unlabeled/improperly labeled items if Amazon requires labeling.
    Note: The choice you make here may not correlate with the value on the Amazon Shipments tab’s Label Type field. For example, you may choose Seller_Label here, but Amazon may populate the Label Type field with the No_Label value when they preview the shipment. This would happen if they determine that no labels are needed.
  2. Review and/or change your settings as needed.
  3. When done, click the blue arrow to move to the next step in the wizard: Products.
