The clock is ticking for brands to get on board with Amazon’s new Frustration-Free Packaging program. Vendors of select products sold and fulfilled by Amazon have until Aug. 1, 2019, to ensure their packaging arrives in the ecommerce giant’s fulfillment centers in certified packaging that doesn’t require any shipping preparation or an overbox. Those that meet the deadline will benefit from an early-adopter credit to help offset the costs of complying with the Frustration-Free Packaging initiative; those that don’t will face ongoing chargebacks for every package not certified.
Is your brand affected? If so, will you need to redesign your packaging? How can you achieve compliance with the Frustration-Free Packaging program and ensure you’re not subject to the chargeback?
