Amazon provides the estimated delivery time to buyers on the offer listing and checkout pages. We base this estimate on the time between when the buyer places an order until the delivery reaches the buyer's address.
Handling Time (also known as Production Time or lead_time_to_ship) is the time between when the buyer places the order until you hand the order over to your carrier. Handling time is part of the delivery time calculation displayed on the offer listing and checkout page:
Total Delivery Time = Handling Time + Transit Time (+ any holiday)
There are two ways you can modify the handling time:
Transit time: The time between when you hand the order over to your carrier until its delivery to the buyer’s address. You can modify the transit times for your SKUs by editing your shipping templates. To learn more, see Create, edit, or delete shipping templates.
