Amazon FBA LPN – how to use it.
Amazon FBA removal items often have “LPN” stickers… but what are they for? We know Amazon wants them for claims, but wouldn’t it be nice if they were more transparent? Amazon has finally added a feature enabling sellers and 3PLs to lookup order data by LPN.
What is an LPN anyway?
LPN means “license plate number”, and it’s a technique used by warehouses to track individual units of stock. The Amazon FBA LPN is used to track specific details about individual stock units within Amazon’s fulfillment network. LPNs enable the warehouse to track specific units of stock, such as what shipments or customers they’re related to, who’s touched the item, or other detailed information. Like a serial number.
Why look up FBA removal items by LPN?
Looking up FBA removal inventory by LPN provides visibility into the reason that specific unit may have been returned or marked unsellable. That information can be very helpful when sorting removals or attempting to file claims with Amazon.
Where can I find this?
Amazon added this feature recently, as shown below. Here’s a direct link (https://sellercentral.amazon.com/fba-return).
