Hey guys - I have a product bundle in mind that would ship best in a clear plastic tube. I didn't see anything in the FBA calculator to indicate this would be treated differently for storage or shipping (except for large poster-size tubes, which this is not).

Anyone have familiarity with shipping tubes (like 6.5-8" long with 2.5-3" diameter) to Amazon for FBA? I may end-up shrink-wrapping two tubes together.

I'm also planning on having Amazon apply bar codes initially - seems worth it at $.20 to have it done right and in their system.

Still trying to work-out the details, but the packaging is really important on this one. Still working on a good label for the exterior as well.

Thanks in advance!

I had a product that I originally had in a cardboard tube. Amazon required me to either put it in an outer box (I believe their site specifies the container should have 6 sides) or poly-bag it. My guess is this is to reduce the chance it will roll of the shelves.

Thanks @Hyrum. I also realized that my costs shipping TO amazon would also be high because the box would be large with lots of potential for wasted space. And the weight of the tubes adds-up fast. Might try a paper box of some kind.
