For some items, you are required to specify an expiration date within your box contents information when you are sending a shipment to Amazon. Many times you will see them for the grocery and health care categories. We give you the option to provide this while listing within InventoryLab.
How do I add an expiration date to my listing?
You can toggle the expiration date field on or off while listing. To do so, follow the instructions in our Expiration Date Option article.
I forgot to add an expiration date before creating a shipment. What do I do now?
If box content information is set to ON in InventoryLab, click the N/A under Expires next to the item and add the date.
If box content is set to OFF, you need to provide this information in the shipment in Seller Central.
I am receiving an Expiration Date Error after sending my box content information. Now what?
You will need to go back into the shipment and add your expiration date in. Just follow the instructions in the article: Expiration Date Error.
Do I need to add an expiration date to my listing if I am not adding box content information in through InventoryLab?
No. The expiration date only carries over if you are providing box content information within InventoryLab.
I forgot an expiration date, but did not receive an error for the item. What happened?
There are some items that need expiration dates, but Amazon may not have marked them as such, or the flag may have been removed somehow. You can still enter the dates if you are providing box content information through InventoryLab, but you will need to reach out to Seller Support if you need the flag added to the listing.
Does InventoryLab give the option to print an expiration date label?
Yes! See our Printing Labels with Expiration Dates article to see how to turn this feature on!
