I. Introduction


With ShipMonk, it's really easy to create an order to ship to FBA, with whatever special process you want us to follow. Whether you need item labeling, bundling, bubble wrapping, just add everything to the special instructions box and our team will handle it for you.


There are two basic situations for shipping orders to FBA:

  • You know the weighs and dimensions of the order in advance (this typically happens if you are shipping master cartons, or the same products over and over and know what they will be packed in advance)
  • You don't know the weights and dims and want our team to provide those.




II. Instructions


If you DO know the weights and dims

Step 1. Create new manual order and choose "Custom Shipping Label" as the type of the order



Step 2. Upload the BOL or Shipping Labels (because you knew the weights and dims, you would have these in advance). For LTL orders, please allow at least 3 business days for pickup from the day you are submitting the order.



Step 3. Add the products and click "Submit", which will take you to order detail screen.



Step 4. Click "Add Special Instructions" and type out exactly what you need. 


In this case it might be any of the following:

  • Pick master cartons only (make sure you have master cartons are available)
  • Attach carton and shipping labels to boxes and make sure they match the SKU inside the box.
  • Max box weight 50lbs
  • Longest side can't extend 30 inches.



Step 5. Attach carton labels to the order (you have these at this point because you know how many cartons we would be picking)



Step 6. Our Team will pick and pack the order based on your instructions, and apply the carton and shipping labels to the correct boxes, and ship the order out to Amazon.

Step 7. Based on this information you can login to your Amazon account and generate carton and shipping labels. You will email these labels back to your Happiness Engineer.



Step 8. Our team will label the boxes and get the shipment out of the door.
