Here's an easy to follow guide on how you can apply for the dangerous goods program with Fulfilled By Amazon (FBA). 

When you're approved you will be able to send in those items labeled by Amazon as dangerous. These could include aerosols, batteries, and more. 

Without applying for this program you can only sell hazmat items via merchant fulfilled (FBM) and that's ok but if you're like me you would rather send everything to Amazon and let them handle it. 

If you want to apply, it's important to note there's usually a wait time between when you apply and become approved. For me that was about 1 month.

4 Simple Steps to Sell HAZMAT Items Via FBA

Step 1

Login to Seller Central and locate the search bar at the top of the homepage. Type "Apply for FBA dangerous goods program" in the search bar and click the search button.



Step 2 

Click the FBA Dangerous Goods Program link


Click the FBA Dangerous Goods Program link

Step 3 

Select the FBA Dangerous Goods Program option and click Next


Step 4

Click the Apply to the FBA Dangerous Goods Program option and select next. 

That's it! You should then get a screen telling you that you're on the waitlist. Now all you can do is wait. It may take a month or longer for you get approved. 

Check back periodically and re-perform these steps to find out if you're approved. I don't remember getting any other notification that I was approved but it may be different now.

While you wait you may want to check out the additional steps you'll need to take for shipping hazardous items (whether it be FBA or FBM). There's a great article on Pirate ship's website! Click Here to read it

    I've been selling on Amazon for almost a year now and I signed up for hazmat very early on. And I'm still not approved. Am I missing something? It's been quite a few months. I've pretty much given up on it.

      That's quite a long time to wait. Did you try the new option the have to "get waitlist update" ?

    I don't get a step 3 like you list. I dont get the "look up/FAQ" option. Perhaps I joined but never listed. Do you got an example ASIN I can test with? non profitable of course, just to see if I'm already approved. Thanks, John Myers

      i seen the reply to my post (didnt check it for a while, sorry for the slow response) but I checked B00BTYYQI8 and its a conair curling iron. Didnt realize that would be dangerous good. I needed brand approval, but didnt see anything else blocking me. (didnt get the brand approval though automatically). I THINK I might be hazmat approved already from nearly two years ago, but I just never sold any. Now im thinking of it, just trying to figure it out. When I get to "apply to hazmat" check box, it does not exist. I get something VERY different which is more of a question/answer chapter length thing. Maybe I am aproved.
