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.

  1. I ordered for a new pair of Atika Outdoor Hiking sandal and got sandals loosely kept in a carton of Amazon. There is no original package of Atika. Does this mean the item is not new or it is used? The Amazon’s package shows a sticker saying ” LPN RR BX8832492″

    1. An LPN doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t new. It seems like Amazon adds an LPN to stock units when they want to track that specific unit for some reason. Returns are one reason they might do that. For example, someone may have purchased and returned it saying they bought it by mistake. Amazon might decide the return can be resold as new, but they assign an LPN in case someone complains about it later. That way they can track down what happened.

    1. No, only the Amazon seller who originally owned the products can use the LPN to look up what they are or why they were returned.
