Amazon Transparency

Transparency is an item-level authentication service that helps prevent the sale of counterfeit products to Amazon customers and stops hijackers from selling on your listing.

How it works

You can enrol some or all of your products in Transparency. Once you enrol a product, Amazon will provide a unique Transparency QR code for every unit manufactured.
Amazon will then scan these codes within its FCs to ensure that only authentic products are shipped out to customers. Units that fail Transparency authentication checks are investigated for potential counterfeits.


  • You must be Brand Registered, and can only enrol your own brand products
  • You will need to apply a unique Transparency code sticker on every unit you manufacture
  • Each Transparency code costs between $0.01 - $0.05 per code
