Setting Amazon shipping rules

Shipping settings are found under the FBA or Merchant Fulfilled column group, which is shown collapsed by default to save on screen space.


Click the <> icon to expand the column group.


FBA or Merchant Fulfilled

Select whether the product will be fulfilled by you (Merchant) or if Amazon is warehousing and fulfilling the product - Fulfilment by Amazon (FBA).

FBA means listings use FBA shipping rules. (From a quantity standpoint, webstore quantities/Codisto settings are ignored and listings use stock held in Amazon fulfilment centres).

Merchant fufilled (FBM) uses shipping rules set in Amazon Seller Central (see Shipping Group below).  (From a quantity standpoint, listings use webstore quantities/Codisto settings).

Applicable Dangerous Goods Regulations

Choose from the dropdown list if applicable to your product per Amazon regulations.

Shipping Group

Not relevant for FBA.

For Merchant fulfilled, Codisto LINQ by default will send the "Default Shipping Template" (that is created by the merchant directly in Seller Central) on the listings.  This will happen if the Shipping group field is left blank.  (There is no ability via the Amazon API to create Shipping rules, only apply them.  Hence, they need to be set on Amazon directly). 

If you want to set a different shipping template to the default template against a (set of) product(s), you need to type in the exact name of the shipping template you have set on Amazon (case sensitive) in the shipping group field.  It can be bulk edited using filters if required.

Dispatch Time

Not relevant for FBA. The number of days after receipt of an order that the product will be dispatched.
