What is the Ships in Product Packaging (SIPP) program?
The Ships in Product Packaging program offers Amazon Selling Partners the opportunity to test and qualify to ship customer orders in their own custom-brand packaging without any Amazon-added material. Where possible, this packaging is easy-to-open and 100% recyclable.
I have previously heard of the Frustration Free Packaging (FFP) or Ship in Own Container (SIOC) program, is this the same program?
Yes, we have recently rebranded to Ships in Product Packaging (SIPP) to better reflect the program’s objective. You may still see FFP or SIOC terminology utilized within program materials, as these represent differences in certification.
Why is this program important to customers?
The Ships in Product Packaging program answers customers’ request for less packaging waste, while allowing them to enjoy the convenience of online shopping. Learn more about the customer experience.
Why is this program important to Amazon’s Selling Partners?
Optimized packaging delights customers, can be more sustainable, and improves operations. Amazon offers additional incentives for Selling Partners who participate in the program.
What are the requirements to participate?
Product and packaging must be a minimum of 6” x 4” x 0.375” regardless of packaging structure and follow a short testing sequence to ensure packaging can sufficiently withstand fulfillment. Review the program guidelines for a comprehensive view of product and packaging requirements.
How can I certify my products in the program?
Certifying your products in the Ships in Product Packaging program consists of three steps: 1) design your packaging (if needed), 2) test your packaging to ensure it can protect the product through delivery, and 3) enroll.
