Packaging Guideline for Amazon Sellers
Liquids and products containing liquids can cause damage during shipping and when stored. Products containing liquids without a double seal, including viscous products (such as honey), must be packaged securely to protect Amazon associates, other products, and customers. Be sure to adhere to the guidelines for glass containers, packaging multi-packs of liquids, and volume restrictions by container type. Sets, kits, or bundled products containing liquids must meet these requirements as well.
Watch this brief video for examples of how we prep your products for shipment to and storage in Amazon fulfillment centers.
How to Prep Liquid Products
Permitted packaging materials:
- Poly bags or shrinkwrap (for products that are not double-sealed)
- Bubble wrap and dunnage
Note: Products that are double-sealed do not require poly bagging if they will not leak. Products that are double-sealed but have evidence of leaking may require polybagging at Amazon fulfillment centers. For example, if a package of 10 shampoo bottles arrives at a fulfillment center, with one unit showing signs of leaking, the single unit will be received into your Unsellable inventory if possible, and the other nine units may be polybagged at your expense to prevent them from leaking as well.

Note: Expiration-dated products
Products that expire and are contained in packaging that requires additional prep, such as glass jars or bottles, must be prepped to ensure that the expiration date is accessible for Amazon associates during the receive process. For more information about these requirements, visit the FBA Help section on Date- and Temperature-Sensitive Products.
Definition of a double seal
A double seal is defined as a tightened lid that cannot be easily opened and one of the following:
- A “safety seal” which is a peel-off seal underneath the lid of a product, like you would find on a new ketchup bottle.
- A manufactured seal around the outside of the neck of the product.
Products that do not have a manufactured double seal in one of the ways above must be individually bagged in transparent sealed bags or shrink wrap (minimum of 1.5 mil.) and clearly marked with a suffocation warning label.
Not permitted: Container needs a double seal.
Permitted: Non-breakable and double-sealed container of less than 50 fl. oz.
