Put an end to wrap rage

Wrap rage is when someone gets frustrated because of their inability to open packaging. Amazon has developed their Certified Packaging system to solve the problem and will use the following three-tier level of certification:

  • Frustration Free Packaging (FFP): no prep required, ships without an Amazon overbox, minimal packaging and curbside recyclable
  • Ships in Own Container (SIOC): no prep required, ships without an Amazon overbox
  • Prep-Free Packaging (PFP): no prep required, ships in an Amazon overbox
