Assign SKUs to shipping templates

Select from one of the following options to assign SKUs to shipping templates:

Use the Seller Central Manage Inventory page for up to 50 changes at a time:

In Manage Inventory, the shipping template name displays in the Price column for each SKU, underneath the price.

Note: The shipping price will not display if the SKU is out of stock.

  1. Select one or more of the SKUs you want to update.
  2. Click Actions in the top-left corner.
  3. Select Change shipping template.

Use feeds for more than 50 changes:

  • Excel feed: The Inventory Loader has a column called merchant_shipping_group_name. Use this feed to assign SKUs to Shipping Templates.
  • XML feeds: The product XML feed contains an attribute named MerchantShippingGroupName. Use this attribute to assign SKUs to Shipping Templates.

Use the Manage SFP page:

  1. If you participate in the Seller Fulfilled Prime (SFP) program, visit the Manage SFP page found under Inventory in the main Seller Central navigation.
    Note: You must be an SFP Seller or be enrolled in the SFP trial in order to have the Manage SFP page available.
  2. Click on the Enroll items to Seller Fulfilled Prime tab.
  3. On this page, you can select one of the following options:
    • Change the shipping template to a Prime template at the SKU-level.
    • Select the SKUs you want to assign to the Prime template, and then select Prime template from the Change shipping template on # of selected dropdown menu.

Check the shipping template assigned to a SKU

You can select from the following options to verify which shipping template is assigned to a SKU:

From Manage Inventory:

In Manage Inventory, the shipping template name displays in the Price column for each SKU, underneath the price.

  1. Select a SKU.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Scroll down to find the shipping template assigned to the SKU.
    Note: The shipping template field only displays if the ASIN is set to "Fulfilled by Merchant."

From the Active Listings Report:

  • Download the Active Listings Report from Inventory Reports, and open the file in Excel (or copy paste from Notepad into Excel). Under the merchant-shipping-group column, you will see the assigned SKUs to each template.

From Manage SFP:

  1. If you participate in the Seller Fulfilled Prime program, and want to view the shipping templates applied to your SFP SKUs, visit the Manage SFP page.
  2. Your SFP SKUs are listed on the Track Seller Fulfilled Prime items tab. In the right hand column of the page, you can see the shipping template assigned to each of the SKUs.
  3. To change the shipping template, select one of the following options:
    • Select a new template from the dropdown menu at the SKU-level.
    • Select multiple SKUs and use the Change shipping template on # of selected dropdown menu.
