Hi Dax, thanks for the great article. There's one thing I'm not 100% clear on though. I have a product I am manufacturing and selling myself, and I want to know if I should put a UPC or an FNSKU label on the product. You say:
you can send inventory to Amazon with EITHER a UPC or FNSKU
but in the article on commingled inventory you say:
I was forced to used Stickered Inventory even though I had already had my supplier print my UPC code onto the packaging. This means that I had to pay Amazon $0.20 per unit to label the products with an FNSKU for my first order and change my packaging later.
In my case my inventory will not be commingled so I want to put the right sticker on from the outset. It would be more convenient for me to use a barcoded UPC since I may ultimately use other (non-Amazon) channels. Is it the case that if you send non-commingled inventory to FBA with a barcoded UPC label that they will apply FNSKU labels at the $0.20 cost? Or is there a way to use UPCs for non-commingled inventory?
Any help is appreciated!
