Take advantage of the new Shipping Settings

If you don't have access to shipping templates on the front page of your Shipping Settings, then you have not migrated to the new service. Migrate to the new shipping settings to access the following new features, improvements, and updates:

Shipping templates

  • Shipping templates have replaced shipping overrides; they do not function on the new shipping settings. Shipping templates enable you to customize different shipping preferences for multiple sets of SKUs.
  • Customize your transit times by region and establish different ship options.
Important: All sellers are required to adhere to the shipping template minimum requirements.

To learn how to set up your shipping settings, go to Create, edit, or delete shipping templates.

Seller-set BMVD rates

Premium shipping

  • Take advantage of the new premium shipping options to improve your sales to customers.
  • Set shipping rates by region for premium (for example, Two-Day) or expedited shipping.
  • If eligible, you can enroll in Seller Fulfilled Prime.

International shipping

  • Select which countries you can ship to.
  • Customize transit times and shipping rates by country.

Additions to the Manage Inventory page

Price and Shipping column

The Price and Shipping column displays the shipping template associated with each product/SKU. Click on it to view the settings in that template.

Edit Product page

Click Edit on a product in your inventory to open the Edit Product page. On the Offer tab, you will see a new attribute called Shipping Template.

Changes to inventory files on the Add Products via Upload page

Using the Inventory Loader file

The existing columns named will-ship-internationally and expedited-shipping no longer apply. Shipping templates now define these characteristics. Learn more.

Category-specific inventory files

These have a new column called merchant_shipping_group_name. Use this column to assign each SKU to the relevant shipping template.

Changes to reports on the Inventory Reports page

The Active Listings Report

This has a new column called seller shipping group. It lists the shipping template currently associated with each SKU.

Changes to Seller Profile page

The Seller Profile page no longer shows your shipping settings to customers. Customers will see these details through the product detail page or offer listing page.
