Shipping credits for individual sellers

Note: This Help page does not apply to sellers with Professional selling plans.

When you ship an order, you will receive a standardized shipping credit. Amazon sets shipping charges based on the product category and the shipping method selected by the buyer, and then credits what the buyer was charged to your account.

You must ship orders even if the shipping credit is less than your total shipping costs. For more information, see Configure shipping rates & restrictions and Manage your inventory.

To customize shipping preferences, go to your Shipping Settings.
