An FNSKU is a unique identifier that is assigned to each unit of an item that you sell on Amazon. The FNSKU label is affixed to your product and contains the following information:

– The ASIN of the product

– Your Seller ID

– A unique code that identifies the specific unit of the product

The FNSKU label allows Amazon to track your inventory and sales of each unit of a product. It also helps Amazon determine who to send customer returns to. When a customer returns a product, Amazon uses the information on the FNSKU label to route the return back to the correct seller.

Creating an FNSKU is simple and only takes a few minutes. In the next section, we will show you how to create an FNSKU for your products.

2. How to create an FNSKU for your products

As an Amazon seller, it’s important to create FNSKUs for your products. This will ensure that your items are properly identified and tracked when they are in Amazon’s fulfillment centers. Here’s how to create an FNSKU for your product:

1. Print item labels – You’ll need to print out labels for each of your products. You can do this through your seller central account.

Now that you know how to create an FNSKU, let’s take a look at some tips for making sure that your FNSKUs are successful.

  • Print labels in a full set – every label is unique so never reuse, modify or copy labels

  • Labels should be 1 ⅓ x 4 inches and printed on white paper.

  • Do not put a barcode over the human-readable text on the label.

  • Make sure that your product information is accurate – this includes the ASIN, price, and product name.

  • Ensure that your labels are affixed to your products securely and cannot be removed without damaging the product.

By following these tips, you can be sure that your FNSKUs are successful and that your products have a better chance of being found and purchased by buyers on Amazon. So, what are you waiting for?

7. What If Your Product Doesn’t Have an FNSKU?

If your product doesn’t have an FNSKU, don’t worry! You can still list your product on Amazon. However, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll need to use a UPC or EAN to identify your product. Second, you’ll be responsible for printing and affixing your own labels to each unit of your product. And finally, you’ll need to keep track of your inventory manually, as Amazon will not be able to do it for you. While it’s a bit more work to sell products on Amazon without an FNSKU, it’s still possible to be successful.
