Amazon Partnered Carrier Agreement

We may, at our option, allow you to ship Units at your expense (as described in Section F-9.2 of the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement) to our designated fulfillment center using discounted shipping rates that we may make available to you for certain carriers. In such event, you will use the processes and provide the required information to receive the discounted rates. In addition, you must comply with standard operating procedures, weight and size restrictions, and other shipping requirements of the applicable carriers. For more information about shipping to the fulfillment center, see Shipping and routing requirements.

If we provide you with the estimated shipping costs prior to shipment, you acknowledge and agree that actual shipping costs may vary from such estimates. In addition, if the weight of the Unit, as determined by the applicable carrier, differs from the weight you submitted to determine the estimated shipping costs, one of the following will occur:

  • You may be charged more than the estimated shipping costs if the carrier determines that the Unit weighs more than the weight you submitted.
  • You may be charged the full amount of the estimated shipping costs even if the carrier determines the weight to be less than the weight you submitted.

You will not use our carrier account information (for example, carrier account number or amount of shipping rates) for any purpose, nor disclose such information to any third party, and you will protect such information as Amazon's confidential information in accordance with Section 11 of the Amazon Services Business Solutions Agreement. As between you, us and our carrier, you will be the shipper of record, and we will be the payer of record with respect to all Units shipped to us using the discounted rates. Title and risk of loss for any Unit shipped using discounted rates provided by us will remain with you. Our provision of the shipping rates will not create any liability or responsibility for us with respect to any delay, damage or loss incurred during shipment. You hereby authorize the applicable carrier to provide us with all shipment tracking information.

Note: Refer to your Participation Agreement within the Amazon Service Business Solutions Agreement for complete details.
