Buy shipping using the Merchant Fulfillment API

Note: This feature is available to sellers with Professional selling plans.

An application program interface (API) is a tool that developers can use to build software applications. Developers can use the Merchant Fulfillment API to build applications that let sellers use Amazon's Buy Shipping.

Review the Service Terms for use of the Merchant Fulfillment API.

If you want to buy shipping from your seller account, see Buy shipping through Seller Central.

With the Merchant Fulfillment API, you can:

  • Access Buy Shipping through the Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS).
  • Manage your shipping with a shipping integrator that has adopted the Merchant Fulfillment API.
  • Purchase shipping services directly through the Merchant Fulfillment API.

Note: This is only available in Germany, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
