Why you should sign up for Small and Light on Amazon now

With the start of the new school year, it's the perfect time for Amazon sellers to start shipping Small and Light. If you are wondering why this is the case, you will find the appropriate answers in this post. Another interesting service provider in the field of online shipping is Packhelp. We would like to introduce this provider to you here as well.

Small and Light shipping

With thousands and thousands of school children needing books, notebooks and stationery at the start of each school year, it's a great opportunity for Amazon Sellers to offer products in these categories. Since the majority of these items are relatively small, it's worth taking a closer look at the Small and Light program.

Advantages of Small and Light

A great advantage of Small and Light is that you can save up to 60 percent on shipping fees. Moreover, Small and Light can also be used within the Pan-European program. So you can sell low-priced products while benefiting from lower overall costs. Items that cost less than 10 euros qualify for Small and Light. The shipping process is also the same as with FBA.


Besides the price ceiling, there are other requirements for Small and Light items. For a small envelope, the dimensions are 33 x 23 x 6 cm. The weight must also be less than 225g. For a Small Parcel, the requirements are to stay within the range of 33 x 23 x 6 to 35 x 25 x 12 cm, with a weight between 225g and 400g. A Large Envelope may be between 33 x 23 x 6 and 35 x 25 x 12 cm and must weigh less than 225g. A Large Parcel, on the other hand, is larger than 33 x 23 x 6 cm and weighs more than 44g.

Small and Light throughout Europe

To sell Small and Light items across Europe, you just need to offer the corresponding ASINs with the same SKU in the EU4 stores. After that, you can do the registration. In addition, you need to send the products to the nearest logistics center. Amazon will then take care of the shipping. If you have any questions about the registration, please feel free to write us a short message!
