New seller here. I noticed there has been an ongoing problem for sellers for a couple of years, but haven’t found a solution on the board. Has anyone come up with a good workaround to handle the following situation? If not, Amazon, could you please look at my suggestion in the last paragraph?
Here’s my problem: When I prepare a shipment of books for Fulfillment by Amazon, I pick out the size of box that I can lift when it is full. I put each book into the box as I enter into the system. Then, I prepare it for shipment. When I am through doing all that, Amazon takes the shipment and splits it up into tinier shipments to different fulfillment centers. Sometimes when that happens, I have as few as two books that are going to different fulfillment centers. I am always scrambling to find smaller boxes to adjust to their shipment processing.
Thanks for any help you can give. Amazon, if you’re out there, you might think about adding a field that indicates which fulfillment center the book is going to so sellers can pick the items that are going to the same fulfillment center ahead of time and be sure they have enough books to fill their box. It sure would make our lives easier.
