Amazon Frustration Free Packaging
What’s an odd name to use for this program? Frustration free is a great term actually, when you look at what this program really is to do that, let’s start from the beginning. You have just signed up as a vendor with Amazon and you think your products are packaged suitably for the initial transport to your warehouse, the unknown length of time of storage in your own warehouse, the transport to an Amazon fulfillment center, the unknown storage time in that fulfillment center, the transport to the consumer and the consumer’s experience, removing your packaging from your product.show more

Ensuring packages are easy to open to create a quality customer experience.
